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.
