The Episcopal Divinity School has unanimously elected a new Dean, Dr Katherine Ragsdale. She is radically pro abortion. How radically? Here are her own words on the subject:
And when a woman becomes pregnant within a loving, supportive, respectful relationship; has every option open to her; decides she does not wish to bear a child; and has access to a safe, affordable abortion - there is not a tragedy in sight -- only blessing. The ability to enjoy God's good gift of sexuality without compromising one's education, life's work, or ability to put to use God's gifts and call is simply blessing.
These are the two things I want you, please, to remember - abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Let me hear you say it: abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. I want to thank all of you who protect this blessing - who do this work every day: the health care providers, doctors, nurses, technicians, receptionists, who put your lives on the line to care for others (you are heroes -- in my eyes, you are saints); the escorts and the activists; the lobbyists and the clinic defenders; all of you. You're engaged in holy work.
We have long been told by feminists that if men were to have babies, abortion would be a sacrament. It is the kind of unprovable cant that passes for and often substitutes actual thought in feminist circles. Here we have a feminist naming abortion as a sacrament. Congratulations, feminists. You have become men, the thing you hate most in the world, besides children. And possibly yourselves.
