You've had to consider all of your different options for the last days, or weeks, and it may have felt that there really wasn't one easy clear-cut decision to make. What ever you decide to do, I want you to know that God is with you. God is with you right now in your neighbor's bedroom, and God is going to be right there by your side throughout the procedure. You know the Bible says that nothing in all creation can ever separate us from the love of God. Aren't those beautiful words? Nothing can separate us from the love of God. And, I'm pretty sure that when the Bible says nothing, that that includes adultery, too.
When I read the Bible, I see that God is always loving and forgiving. God knows that you're in an impossible situation, and that you're doing the very best that you can, under these circumstances. You know, nowhere in the Bible does it say that God will send you to hell for adultery. So, how do we know what God thinks? Well, since I'm a Christian minister, I look specifically at the life of Jesus. I think about the ways Jesus interacted with women. Do you remember the story about Jesus and the woman who was about to be stoned? The religious leaders accused her of being caught in having sex with a man that she wasn't married to. Jesus stepped right in between those religious leaders and the woman and looked them in the eye and said, "Let the one who is without sin cast the first stone." Well, of course they just dropped their rocks and went away, and the woman's life was saved. Jesus treated her with respect and love.
Do you remember the story about Jesus and the woman at the well? She had such a bad reputation that no one in town would even speak to her. But, Jesus went out of His way to find her and to start a conversation with her.
He treated her with respect and love. Every single time Jesus has a conversation with a woman, he treats her with respect. That's how I know that Jesus feels respect for you too.
So, if you've decided that adultery is the right choice for you, take your faith with you. You don't have to leave it outside. God will be with you the entire time. And, if you'd like to talk to someone further about your decision, please ask for one of my business cards. You can call us and ask to speak to a clergy counselor to talk more about your decision. We want you to know that we're there for you, and that you do not have to face this decision alone. God bless you! Romans 8:38-39
The bulk of this article is a written transcript of the following video on the Youtube page of the West Alabama Women's Center. Few words were changed for my parody. The original can be seen here below. I discovered it here at the very bottom of a website list of abortion providers. A screenshot of the top of the site's introduction is available below. Click to enlarge. As the list explains, it is only one directory and not a complete list of all the clinics. Only those registered with that particular site are on that list.

Video Response: *Opinions are those of the blogger*
1. The telling of the story above of the woman taken in adultery is incorrect on several counts. The men brought her to Jesus. He ignored them & wrote in the sand, & when he looked up & saw the accusers were all gone, He told her to "Go and sin no more."
2. The story of the half-breed woman at the well as told above, leads you to believe that Jesus only comforted the woman everyone else disliked. In fact, she had many "friends" among the men of the town, and Jesus pointed out her multiple marriages, and the fact that she was living in sin. He also told her she didn't know what she believed, & to bring her partner to Him as well.
4. When someone ministers to people, they are not helping if they perform a procedure and then abandon the mother to deal with it on her own afterwards. This would be no better "respect" than she got from the abandoning father. Jesus gave mercy to overcome the problem of sin. He never candy coated sin, nor said to go on and make our own choice. Our job is not to define sin, but to lead people to whom we minister to Jesus, and to redemption.
5. There is no indication that Ms. Turner is associated with ministering in a "church." She is part of the Missouri Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, a "Faith Based Organization" whose sole function is reproductive rights to abortion. This means, basically, that their "religion" is Abortion.
