PCUSA belongs to RCPC

RCPC is new to me. It stands for Religious Coalition for Reporductive ChoiceAmong the Unitarians, several Jewish organizations including Conservative Judaism, Humanist Judaism, Reform Judaism; United Methodist, United Church of Christ, Episcopal Church, Catholics for Choice, and YWCA ~~ is Presbyterian Church, USA.

Katherine Ragsdale known as the ‘High Priestess of Abortion’, and a leader within RCPC; will be the first female president of Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, MA.

“Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done!” she repeatedly exclaimed at a rally in defense of an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, in 2007. Those “blessing” situations, according to Ragsdale, are when a woman is pregnant due to “violence,” when the fetus has “anomalies,” when the woman hasn’t education or a “sustainable job,” and even when a woman has a “loving, supportive, respectful relationship” with “every option open to her” but knows the child will compromise “one’s education, life’s work, or ability to put to use God’s gifts.” So basically, abortion, including even partial-birth abortion as Ragsdale admits, is a “blessing” just about any time it is desired.

Ragsdale’s, “Abortion is a Blessing“, rally exerpt, NARAL Website:

And when a woman becomes pregnant within a loving, supportive, respectful relationship; has every option open to her; decides she does not wish to bear a child; and has access to a safe, affordable abortion – there is not a tragedy in sight — only blessing. The ability to enjoy God’s good gift of sexuality without compromising one’s education, life’s work, or ability to put to use God’s gifts and call is simply blessing.

 These are the two things I want you, please, to remember – abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Let me hear you say it: abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done.
