Christian Minister Claims Killing Babies in Abortions “is Health Care”

Killing an unborn baby in an abortion is “health care” and a matter of “free will,” a United Church of Christ minister argued in a column this week at Colorado Politics.

Pastor Tamara Boynton, the interim executive director of the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado, co-wrote the piece with Dusti Gurule, the executive director of the Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights.

Together the pastor and abortion activist asserted that abortions – including late-term abortions on viable, fully-formed unborn babies – are a matter of “essential health care,” and they are proud to be fighting for it.

“Essential health care should never be pushed out of reach based on financial obstacles or systemic oppression — and certainly not because someone is imposing their will or views on others,” they wrote.

Boynton and Gurule insisted that “abortion is health care,” and it’s really no different than an appendectomy.

But their statement contradicts the expertise of thousands of doctors, scientists and even abortionists themselves. Abortion is different and it is not health care because it kills a unique, living human being. In 2019, medical leaders representing more than 30,000 doctors issued a statement saying abortions are not essential or necessary.

“Abortion treats no disease,” the doctors said. “Pregnancy is not a disease, and deliberately killing the unborn child by abortion is not healthcare.”

The purpose of the medical profession is to heal, relieve pain and preserve life. Abortion does the opposite.

Boynton and Gurule went on to argue for abortion based on their religious beliefs – while criticizing the beliefs of others who come to the opposite conclusion about unborn babies’ lives.

“… our laws should not favor one religious opinion over another,” they wrote while arguing for laws that support their opinion on the matter. “Even if we disagree about abortion, it simply must be a decision that each person makes for themselves. This is what allows for compassion and the affirmation of religious liberty.”

Killing a baby in the womb is ok, they argued, because “it is a matter of free will to determine one’s own path and divine right to honor your own conscience.”

But opposition to abortion is not solely based on religion, as Boynton and Gurule suggested. Science also backs up the pro-life position. Biologically, it is well accepted that a unique, separate human life comes into existence at the moment of conception, and an abortion intentionally kills that life.

Abortionists themselves admit this to be true. During debates and interviews with journalists, abortionists Leroy Carhart, Curtis Boyd, Willie Parker and others have publicly said they are “killing” human beings.

Boynton and Gurule concluded their article by mirroring a sentiment pro-lifers often say when they advocate for unborn babies and mothers. They called on society to provide care and compassion to people in need, even when it is difficult.

The problem is that the “care” that they are advocating for is really killing.

They wrote:

Many are called to care for our neighbors and respond with compassion even in times of conflict. This is not always simple, but if we are to truly honor this important duty then we must look at the way barriers to abortion take health decisions away from Black, indigenous and people of color who already struggle to obtain health services.

It is unconscionable that certain people try to make this a debate about taxes when families who are denied insurance benefits for abortion may be pushed further into the cycle of poverty or forced to forego paying rent or buying groceries to come up with the money to go to a clinic and seek a health service.

It is unconscionable that anyone would suggest killing an unborn child is a solution to these problems.
