Pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton received a lot of endorsements this week, but one came from an unusual source – a Christian gospel singer.
Yolanda Adams, an award-winning African American gospel singer who was named the No. 1 gospel artist of the last decade by Billboard Magazine, posted a message on her Facebook page Wednesday supporting Clinton for president, the Christian Post reports.
“Today is a day of Historic Significance because once again we make history as a country,” Adams wrote. “Congrats to Dem Nom Sec Hillary Clinton!! God’s best to you me dear.”
Hundreds of her fans responded to the post; some agreed with her but others were upset by her support of the radically pro-abortion candidate.
“Not sure why Christian Yolanda Adams endorses a Nominee who is pro abortion- ? How can you possibly not have an issue with this and call yourself a Christian? We are the voice for the unborn,” a response from Sally Camella read.
Another response from Michelle Miller-Christopherson read: “As a Christian who is pro life, I cannot believe that a Christian could support Hillary who is not only pro choice, but a big supporter of planned parenthood- The innocent are never given a voice, nor a choice- We must take a stand for God’s gifts of life!!”
Clinton’s candidacy has received a lot of attention this week after she won enough delegates to basically clinch the Democratic nomination.
Clinton’s pro-abortion views are longstanding, and many pro-life women leaders are speaking out against her radical position. On Friday, a group of pro-life female leaders sent a joint statement explaining why they cannot support Clinton.
The pro-life women leaders said:
“As female leaders of the pro-life movement who represent millions of women of all ages, we cannot celebrate this first nomination of a woman for the office of the U.S. president by a major political party because of Hillary Clinton’s radical pro-abortion record and alliance with the abortion lobby. The unholy alliance between Clinton and Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, is disgraceful.
“Planned Parenthood receives over $500 million in taxpayer money annually, then funnels tens of millions of dollars to candidates like Clinton to further its agenda and increase its bottom line. They both profit from the abortion industry in a self-serving cycle. Instead of empowering women, Clinton and Planned Parenthood lie to women, betray women, and sell out women and children, all in the name of profit. Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood do not represent us.”
Clinton has said more taxpayer money needs to go to the Planned Parenthood abortion business and Clinton demonstrated her unyielding commitment to abortion and the Planned Parenthood abortion business, accepting their endorsement during a pro-abortion rally — saying she would be the abortion business’ president.
“I will always defend Planned Parenthood and I will say consistently and proudly, Planned Parenthood should be funded, supported and protected, not undermined, misrepresented and demonized,” Clinton said. “As your president, I will always have your back.”
In March 2009, she received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger award at an event in Houston. During the event, Clinton said that emphasizing and promoting abortion is a key issue in President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. She also defended taxpayer funded abortions for poor women.
During this election, Hillary has slammed a new law in Indiana banning abortions on babies with Down syndrome.
During an interview on The View recently Hillary Clinton said an unborn child just hours before delivery should have no Constitutional rights. Her comments came just days after Clinton said unborn children simply do not have any Constitutional rights, which would include the right to life.
In February, Clinton defended partial-birth abortions: “My husband vetoed a very restrictive legislation on late-term abortions, and he vetoed it at an event in the White House where we invited a lot of women who had faced this very difficult decision, that ought to be made based on their own conscience, their family, their faith, in consultation with doctors. Those stories left a searing impression on me,” she continued.
At a presidential forum at Drake University, Clinton called abortion, the ending the life of another human being, a “fundamental human right.”
