Politics: Iowa Democrats join abortion activists for sick pro-abortion 'prayers'

'We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care'
If your political goal is to murder as many of the unborn as is humanly possible, no one should be surprised that you're constantly taking the rhetoric to new depths. Today's sick twisting of religion comes to us from a pro-abortion rally in Iowa. There, Des Moines activist Midge Slater delivered one of the creepiest prayers you're ever going to hear.
In attendance were Iowa Democrat gubernatorial candidates Jack Hatch and Tyler Olson. We can only presume that their grasp on religion is tenuous at best, since they apparently support praying for things like this:
“We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.”
“We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.”
“Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.”
“We pray for women who have been made afraid of their own power by their materialistic religion. May they learn to reject fear and live bravely.”
“Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.”
Just ...wow. Obviously, we get that the left loves to mock the faithful and warp Christian beliefs into a derisive weapon, but this is pretty vile stuff. The fact that two major Democrat candidates were willing to stand there, fold their hands, and bow their heads speaks volumes about how low they're willing to sink.
