It’s always crazy to see these memos go out and hear the same thing repeated over and over. As Twitchy reported, “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg recently argued that “God doesn’t make mistakes,” and God “made us smart enough to know when [a baby] wasn’t going to work for us.” Not long after, Georgia Gov. Stacey Abrams claimed not only that “it is lethal to be pregnant in Georgia if you are a black woman,” but that abortion at any stage of a pregnancy is a right from “the free will that the God I believe in gave us.”
Now we have the Reverend Al Sharpton weighing in with a similar argument: God gave us choice, including abortion.
Reverend Al Sharpton Claims The Bible Endorses Killing Babies in Abortions: “It’s About Choice” https://t.co/BMILmoaCSu

Sharpton urged Democrats to “message it in a way that it is about choice. It’s not about saying I’m voting that I support abortion or not.”
For Sharpton, the choice is not between abortion and no abortion, but “whether they’re going to have a safe abortion. We always had abortions, but we had these back alley, very risky abortions and we’re saying that rather than have people in those situations, they should be able to choose whether or not they want to do, even if it is something that I do not believe in.”
Turning to the religious question, Sharpton claimed, “The Bible, if you’re using this as a religious argument, the Bible is about choice. You can go to heaven or hell. There’s nowhere in the Bible that says you had to go to heaven.”
Not sure what Bible he’s reading but mine doesn’t condone murder! Exodus 20:13 KJV

As well as the 10 commandments. Though shall not kill covers all human life.

Then you are not a reverend. Show passage and verse? You can’t. Deut. 30:19 — call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live,

Now that's a huge leap within a week from rewriting Wikipedia to the Bible.

I don’t understand how anyone in the black community can take this lying, grifting fraud seriously. He has used them to enrich & empower himself. Black culture has always been “conservative” values. He has systematically tried to destroy their values for decades. Don’t let him.

The Bible’s pretty clear about which choices you should and should not make.
