Obviously, the reason why such ‘labeling’ matters to Christians is important.
Christians bear the name of Christ in that they are supposed to be followers of Christ. Christ emulators.
If formerly pregnant women are ‘victims’ of abortion then they bear no fault through the process. This is the positive that it seems most conservatives as well as pro-life folks are taking. See the examples on Cane’s, Zippy’s and Dalrock’s. As Zippy notes, these folks are not pro-life but in fact pro-choice.
Fault or sin and acknowledgement of it is a precursor to repentance. In Christianity, repentance is required for salvation. After all, we are required to admit fault, turn from our wicked ways, and follow Christ through a pattern of good works.
Thus, women who get abortions are at the very least conspirators and/or co-conspirators with the added tagline of the crime of pay-for-murder. They are perpetrators of a crime.
Politicians who choose this view mainly do because of pandering. They want a clean image to women so that women will vote for them.
Christians who do this probably have many different motivations. Some are probably deceived into believe that women do no wrong: men bad, women good. Some detest calling out women, even when they’re in sin. The proverbial white knight. Some probably don’t believe women even have agency: it was all the big bad doctor or terrible boyfriend who coerced her into that abortion.
I don’t really care about what politicians do, but those who claim to be Christians who perpetuate that women are victims of abortion are quite wrong and need to be informed. It impairs the ability of women to truly repent for their sins.
Also, this goes along the same lines as why feminism is bad for both men and women. Feminism paints Patriarchy as evil when it is indeed good. Hence, all men are defined as perpetrators of crimes. Whereas women are painted as the victims who can do no wrong. It is clearly enforced as such in popular culture, universities, family law, and the courts with reduced or absent sentences for women who perpetrate the same crimes as men.
The true irony is that anyone who kills or murders a pregnant woman is guilty of two counts of homicide. However, the mother herself who ‘chooses’ to terminate a pregnancy is guilty of nothing.
- Goddess worship — women are the source of all that is good. Only the female sex drive is good because it produces life.
- Fertility worship — women are the creators of life and have the choice to make or take it.
- jezebel worship — usurpation of authority and power. Patriarchy is bad.
Different times from the Bible but the same religions. The vast majority of occultic practices in the Scriptures originate from goddess worship and associated phenomena.
