Pro-Choice and Christian: Reconciling Faith, Politics, and Justice

9780664262921
Despite the claim by many Christian leaders that the pro-life/antiabortion position is the only faithful response to the debate about reproductive rights, many people of faith find themselves in a murky middle of this supposedly black-and-white issue. Christians who are pro-abortion rights are rarely pro-abortion. However, they view the decision to carry a pregnancy to term as one to be made by the woman, her medical team, her family, or personal counsel rather than by politicians. Pro-Choice and Christian explores the biblical, theological, political, and medical aspects of the debate in order to provide a thoughtful Christian argument for a pro-choice position with regard to abortion issues. Kira Schlesinger considers relevant Scriptures, the politics of abortion in the United States, and the human realities making abortion a vital issue of justice and compassion. By examining choice from a Christian perspective, Schlesinger provides a common vocabulary for discussing faith and reproductive rights.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Kira SchlesingerPublisher: Westminster John Knox PressPublished: 09/08/2017ISBN: 9780664262921Pages: 144Weight: 0.34lbsSize: 8.50h x 5.50w x 0.35d
