Claim the view that abortion is murder is just the product of a 'white evangelical worldview'

Should the Supreme Court follow through with its anticipated decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and thus significantly roll back abortion rights in the United States, many Christians across the country would celebrate and praise God for bestowing his grace and favor.

Pro-life advocates, many of whom are Christians, have fought for decades to defend the lives of the unborn and restrict the performance of abortions in the U.S., something they argue is clear and unjustifiable murder.

But according to the Associated Press, not everyone who professes to be a follower of Jesus Christ agrees with the sentiment. In fact, some clinic workers and religious abortion advocates in the southeastern U.S. told the news agency that it's their faith, not a lack thereof, that fuels their support for a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy.

One example is Ramona, an employee at West Alabama Women’s Center, who claimed her "trust in God" is what led her to the clinic, where she tends to patients who have undergone abortion procedures.

She and her fellow coworkers, "most of them black, deeply faithful Christian women," claimed they have no trouble reconciling their work with their religious beliefs.

"God is on our side, they tell each other. God will keep this clinic open," the AP reported following interviews with the clinic's staff of 11.
