An ad being used by a pro-abortion organization in Ohio to lobby voters to support late-term abortion procedures there is being slammed for twisting Jesus' words to support killing the unborn.
The ad also drew the comments of Mark Harrington, the president of Created Equal.
"Twisting of scripture by 'pastors' to advance abortion should anger every Christian. We need to turn our anger into action to defeat Ohio's Issue 1," he said.
The ad, which is included in Harrington's commentary:
The ad, from Ohioans United for Reproductive Rights, features a "pastor" supporting the abortion ideology.
"Using the words of our beloved savior Jesus Christ to justify preborn child-killing represents a new low for those promoting an amendment that would enshrine unlimited abortion through all stages of pregnancy into the Ohio Constitution," a statement from Harrington said.
He continued, "Jesus' prohibition to 'not judge lest ye be judged' was not intended to be used as a blanket exemption from discerning between good and evil. In fact, in John 7:24, Jesus says, 'Do not judge according to appearance only, but judge with righteous judgment.' The admonition was not a command to tolerate every evil behavior, but rather to avoid hypocrisy."
Created Equal pointed to its own ad that features an abortion survivor.
