Alexis McGill Johnson, a self-professed Christian who is also the chair of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the nation's leading reproductive healthcare and abortion provider, told The Christian Post Thursday that many Christians don't believe that abortion services were accessed by only 10 percent of the nonprofit's clients. She also insisted that decisions to terminate a pregnancy should "be left to a woman, her doctor and her God" and not a politician.
When reminded of a report released in February by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene that revealed how black women living in the city aborted more than half of their pregnancies, Johnson said the contexts of those cases were key.

This article seems skewed. More importantly, as Christian we should stop being so snobbish and quick to judge the plights of others. This behavior does not embody the tenets of our faith.

I used to think anyone who called themself a Christian was born again, but now I have ask followup questions to get to what they actually believe.

Many people call themselves Christian but are on their way to hell. Hypocrisy has been a major part of Christian religion since the beginning. I think there are more hypocrites in churches across the nations than there are Christians. One only has to look at what calls itself "church" eg RCC and Anglican/Episcopalian.
Abortion is murder that is a fact. The only way man can prevent that tiny life from going on to become a person in the world is to kill it. Nations are culpable to the millions of infant murders going on daily in our societies.
