A pro-abortion religious group in Minnesota is putting on a training seminar to teach clergy how to support women’s abortions. While Biblical principles fully affirm the worth and dignity of human life, the Minnesota Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice apparently thinks the Bible instructs clergy to promote abortion.

“Join us in St. Paul on Wednesday, Feb. 12, from 8:30am-4pm for a Clergy & Faith Leader Training for Reproductive Health, Loss & Justice,” it coninues. “Guest speaker Rev. Matthew Westfox will lead us in deep learning, listening, & sensitivity to the intensely personal nature of these issues. This new curriculum is designed to help us integrate our reproductive lives into our faith journey. ”



The pro-abortion group says the training is open to clergy, seminarians, & faith leaders engaged in pastoral care and the cost is $85.
