Pastor Ben Bailey of Tennessee’s Gospel of Christ Ministries said on Sunday that Christians must participate in electoral politics in order to make abortions illegal. He lamented that laws have been proposed to fight fight conservative encroachments on women’s right to choose.
“As Christians, we need to vote against those ungodly measures,” Bailey said, “vote that those things would not be accepted and would not be right in the sight of our God.”
“Think about this,” he went on. “Put yourself in this situation. What if your parents had decided to have an abortion? How would that make you feel? You wouldn’t have experienced life, the joy of life, the sadness, you wouldn’t have experienced that. You wouldn’t be here today, I wouldn’t be here today.”
“What if that were the case?” he asked. “We’ve got to kind of personalize this and not just see this in the abstract. This is personal, this is something that we each need to think about.”

Mulvaney handed investigators the ‘smoking gun’ on ‘one of the most significant days of the decade’: Morning Joe
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney had offered "smoking gun" evidence in a stunning confession to the crime at the heart of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
The "Morning Joe" host said Mulvaney had made a stunning "confession," but he said the president had on the same day endorsed the ethnic cleansing of the Kurdish allies he had betrayed to Turkey.
"There's so much to talk about, we joke for a few minutes at the top of the show, Mika likes do that, me, I like to get straight into the news," said Scarborough, who frequently annoys his wife and co-host by bantering about sports at the start of the show. "But there's so much going on that if somebody just woke up this morning they might not think that yesterday was not one of the most significant news days in, during the trump presidency, and I may even argue one of the most significant news days over perhaps the last decade, just in terms of volume."
‘The wheels are coming off’: MSNBC panel says Trump told his chief of staff to ‘walk the plank’
Two MSNBC anchors discussed Thursday's whirlwind day of breaking news in scandals involving President Donald Trump.
The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" joined Brian Williams on "The 11th Hour" to discuss Trump holding the G7 Summit at his Trump National Doral Miami golf course and the White House acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, confessing that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine -- before attempting to walk back his confession.
"Did things change today, do you think?" Williams asked.
"I do feel like the wheels are coming off," Maddow said.
"For the Energy Secretary [Rick Perry] to resign, you've had two cabinet secretaries resign during the impeachment proceedings already, one of whom, the current one resigning tonight, the Energy Secretary, does appear to be involved in the scheme, at least on a couple of different levels. We have got the White House Chief of Staff who was sent out today, not only to make the, 'Yes, it was quid pro quo. Yes, we did it. What are you going to make of it?' article -- which was bracing, but then to take it back, simultaneously announcing this self-dealing, which is something more blatant than we’ve ever seen from any president in U.S. history," she explained.
Rick Wilson rips Trump for holding G7 meeting at his ‘South Florida House of Bed Bugs Hotel’
