A liberal radio host claims God is pro-choice and actually performed abortions in the Bible, and the video of his outrageous ideas was reposted on the RH Reality Check blog and Twitter account Tuesday. The non-for-profit organization, which reportedly has the same goals as Planned Parenthood, used the video to posit that "the Bible is #ProChoice" and to spread propaganda to support their claim.
The claim that God performed abortions in the Bible and that God is pro-choice came from a segment of "The Kyle Kulinski Show" from March 28. RH Reality Check tweeted that "most anti-choicers claim obedience to the divinely inspired word of God" and that the Bible "appears contradictory to the anti-choice stance."
Their evidence for this is Kulinski's segment, in which he pointed to several scriptures to prove his point that God is pro-choice.
In Hosea 9:14, Kulinski highlighted how the prophet Hosea prayed for the wicked tribe of Ephraim to be given "a miscarrying womb and dry breasts."
"This is the part of the Bible where God actually performs abortions," Kulinski said. However, he ignored verses 12a and 13b, where Hosea says "Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left" and "Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer"— the prophet is actually asking that the children not be conceived and born only to be killed by enemies, according to the Matthew Henry commentary Bible study.
Kulinski also mentioned Numbers 5, which has God's law for a woman who is suspected of adultery against her husband. The chapter talks about the bitter water a woman would drink, which would curse her with infertility if she were guilty but do her no harm if she were innocent.
"Cheating wives are supposed to get an abortion in the Bible," the young agnostic-atheist host claimed, adding that the "poison" she drank would "make [her] belly swell and the fetus rot and drop out"— a radical interpretation, at best.
"Everything Jesus said is super hippe and super left-wing, but the conservative Christians disregard that and they focus on abortion," Kulinski continued. "It's not about what [the Bible] says, it's about what your already held biases and prejudices are."
