Wow, you know someone does not understand the Bible when she tries to use a verse to defend abortion. You can also tell that she, actress Alyssa Milano, feels guilty. Why need to defend your belief in and love for God if you have a clear conscience?
Milano has recently made waves by urging fellow celebrities to boycott Georgia over passing the heartbeat bill, which bans abortion after a heartbeat is detected, usually around 6 weeks. It makes exemption for rape, incest, and instances where the mother's life is in danger. The bill was only awaiting Governor Brian Kemp's signature, who just signed it late Wednesday, despite celebrity opposition.
"I can't govern because I'm worried about what someone in Hollywood thinks about me," Governor Kemp said. "I ran the last two years on these issues, and I got elected with the largest number of votes in the history of the state of Georgia, and I'm doing what I told people I would do."
Milano recently tweeted that she loved God but chose science over belief. She included this verse from John 3:12, “If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?”
“I love God. I believe in God,” she tweeted. “But I don’t believe my personal beliefs of which we can’t confirm should override scientific facts and what we can confirm.”
While some followers liked it (of course, pro-choicers like anything that takes the guilt out of abortion), others called out Milano's poor theology. One leading pro-life activist, Lila Rose, tweeted back at Milano, “You don’t have to love God to acknowledge the irrefutable science that a unique, individual human life begins at the moment of conception,” said the Live Action president. “But if you love God, then you also will love His children. He’s a father, and every single one of us are created in His image.”
Others also shot holes through Milano's theology and logic.
What do you think of Milano's attempt to justify abortion with the Bible, claiming a love of God? Share your thoughts in the comments! We'd love to know what you think!
