Dem. Rep. Cites Bible Verse on House Floor to Justify Infanticide

'It doesn’t say the government’s womb or the speaker’s womb, it says the mother’s womb...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Rep. Hillary Scholten, D-Mich., cited Holy Scripture to justify her pro-infanticide views in a speech Wednesday on the House floor, Life News reported.

“As a pro-choice Christian who chose life, this issue is so personal to me,” Scholten said, citing a previous miscarriage and other suffering related to pregnancy, which she said justified her pro-abortion stance.

She claimed that because the Bible does not explicitly say that there should not be state-funded abortions, it is ethically sanctioned by scripture.

“I’m guided by passages like Jeremiah 1:5, which states, ‘I knew you before I formed you and placed you in your mother’s womb,’” she said.

“It doesn’t say the government’s womb or the speaker’s womb, it says the mother’s womb,” she continued. “I believe life is precious, but I reject the idea that if I embrace the sanctity of life, I also must be forced to invite the federal government in to regulate it.”

Of course, Scholten entirely ignored the fact that the “pro-choice” movement from its origins has aimed at not only legalizing abortion, but removing social stigma around it and even funding the procedure as an inalienable “right” of women.

She continued on to argue that, though she personally is Christian, she would not want to act like one in her public capacity.

“My faith informs my actions but it doesn’t dictate the policy of an entire nation.”

For Scholten, choosing to abort a baby is one of “the most sacred and personal decisions of our lives and our children’s lives,” she said.
