Ultrasound-Nogwater-FlickrSt. James Episcopal Church in Wichita, Kan., has drawn nationwide ire for hosting a “Chili for Choice” Planned Parenthood fundraiser this Thursday, Jan. 22, the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in America. According to EAGNews.org, the church says that the Wichita Planned Parenthood clinic doesn’t perform abortions, so the fundraiser is justified. And in response to the outcry, a church official stated, “The Episcopal church says you can form your own opinion about reproductive justice and you can be against it or for it. There’s room for everybody in the Episcopal church to come together and worship God,” reported The Wichita Eagle. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood announced that in its last fiscal year (July 1, 2013-June 30, 2014), it performed 327,653 abortions, and the organization remains the largest abortion provider in the nation. Religion and culture expert Dr. Alex McFarland who addresses abortion in his most recent book, “10 Issue that Divide Christians,” says the fact that churches and entire denominations across the nation are embracing abortion and claiming personal opinions may be used to guide Scriptural interpretation is disturbing at best, alarming at worst.
