Yes, you read right.
Outspoken liberal celebrity Alyssa Milano just tried to use the Bible to defend abortion, and it (obviously) totally backfired.
The statement she posted to her Twitter may have been one of the dumbest things Milano has ever said, and Milano has said some stupid things in the past.
On Monday, the actress tweeted out:
This may have been one of the worst interpretations of a Bible verse ever made.
Let's see the responses Milano received on Twitter:
Here's what the Western Journalhad to say about Milano's history of defending abortion:
Milano should quit embarrassing herself and stop tweeting about politics, but that doesn’t look likely to happen anytime soon.
The actress has recently been at the forefront of Hollywood’s crusade for abortion, calling for a Hollywood boycott of the entire state of Georgia because legislators passed the “heartbeat” bill, which would become law pending a signature from Gov. Brian Kemp.
Georgia’s heartbeat bill, which Milano fiercely opposes, won’t even end the sickening practice of abortion — the bill will merely limit abortions to six weeks from conception.
Milano is the quintessential Hollywood liberal; she pretends to have the moral high ground while advocating for the evil practice of abortion.
Townhall brought up some good points against Milano's argument (if you could even call it that):
It’s just that she could not have chosen two worse witnesses to defend the “right” of abortion. To repeat: both the Bible and science, rightly understood, are pro-life.
Let’s start with Scripture.
First, the Word teaches that God carefully and lovingly formed us in the womb (Psalm 139:13-16).
Second, it teaches the personhood of the baby in the womb (Luke 1:41-42).
Third, it teaches the potential destiny of each child in the womb (Genesis 25:23; Jeremiah 1:5; Galatians 1:15).
Fourth, it teaches the importance of caring for “the least of these,” the most vulnerable and hurting (Matthew 18:1-6, 10; 25:31-46).
Fifth, it teaches us to stand up for the innocent being led to slaughter (Proverbs 24:11-12).
Sixth, it teaches us that God hates the shedding of innocent blood, especially of babies (see, for example, Jeremiah 7:30-34; 17:1-6; Proverbs 6:17).
(For those who have had abortions or participated in abortions, I should add that Scripture also teaches that Jesus died for every sin we have committed – including the sin of abortion – and offers us forgiveness through the cross.)
As for science – or, in Milano’s words, “scientific facts” – what exactly did she have in mind?
Does science teach that the baby in the womb is simply a clump of cells or a mass of tissue?
Does it teach that the unborn child is not human until it leaves the womb? That it does not have a beating heart? That it does not have unique DNA? That it cannot feel pain (at a certain point of development)? That it can be tossed aside for any and every reason?
What “scientific facts” support abortion? Can anyone name one?
Over at the Daily Wire, Amanda Prestigiacomo compiled some of the better responses to Milano’s tweet, including “So... When does a baby in utero become 'scientifically' human enough for you to protect their life?” (Elisha Kraus) And, “Who wants to tell her that the fact that human life begins at fertilization has been scientific consensus for almost a century?” (Lauren Enriquez) And, “If these babies aren't humans, someone should tell them to stop kicking the sh*t out of my bladder” (Emily Zanotti).
But of course. The baby is human and science confirms that.
