A small group of Kentucky religious leaders held a press conference this week to insist that they can both be Christians and support the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

Forward Kentucky, a progressive political blog, reported about the press conference, which abortion activists held in reaction to pro-life Gov. Matt Bevin’s comments about his pro-abortion political opponent’s faith. The conference was held at Douglas Boulevard Christian Church in Louisville.

“I support reproductive rights because I am a person of faith, not in spite of my faith,” said Lauren Jones Mayfield of Highland Baptist Church.

However, she contradicted herself when she claimed that Baptists respect the dignity of all people because they are created in the image of God.

“The Baptists I know respect the dignity of all people, which includes the dignity of women who are entitled to safe, legal abortions …” Jones Mayfield said. “The Baptists I know cherish the priesthood of all believers, an idea that each individual is connected to the Divine through their very personhood, which is created in a holy image.”

But unborn babies are people, too. From the moment of conception, they are unique, living human beings who are created in God’s image and deserve protection.

Dr. Derrick Penwell, of Douglas Boulevard Christian Church, argued that Jesus “had nothing to say” about unborn babies, and there is no “consensus on when life begins.”
