Abortion is a “God given right” according to one Baptist Minister

For the mother, of course; Carlton Veazey, a Baptist minister, doesn’t seem to think unborn babies have a God-given right not to be aborted:

Rev. Carlton Veazy, president and CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, told a small crowd of pro-abortion protesters that women have a “God-given right” to abortion and that opposition from pro-life congressmen and religious leaders would never take it away.

Veazy, closing speaker at a “Stop Stupak” rally on Capitol Hill staged by major pro-abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood, NARAL-Pro Choice, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) told the crowd that not only did they have a constitutional right to abortion, but that they had a God-given one as well.

“Don’t let anybody tell you that religious people don’t support choice,” Veazy said at the gathering in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. “You not only have a constitutional right for abortion, but you have a God-given right.”

There is a disconnection between Veazey’s pro-abortion view and the love he has for his children and grandchildren that borders on mental derangement:

As for me, this work is an extension of the constantly maturing love I have for my children, and now my grandchildren and the children of the village. Every day I feel blessed that I am a father to all my children, that I’m still on this journey, and that I am faithfully, prayerfully, pro-choice.

I am pro-choice too: I’m pro giving the unborn the chance to choose life without the threat of being dismembered or burned to death in utero.



  1. Great post, and good insight. I’ve heard of this Rev. Carlton before. Kind of a nut. Seriously, though, does he not see the dangerous precedent that is being set if health care funding comes from the government and includes abortions? Then we start cutting costs and who are the first to go? The elderly and the unborn. Incentives to abort unborn children to save on ob-gyn costs, you name it. It’s a fool’s paradise.

  2. Reminds me of something I heard many moons ago – whether on this topic or another, I don’t remember.
    “Just because it’s legal doesn’t make it moral”.
