    If only Jesus had Twitter, oh the irony 😧

    • Pretty sure he does. God has a twitter account, so why wouldn’t Jesus?

      toob maniac well done. You accused someone of putting words into the mouth of Jesus and at the same time … put words into the mouth of Jesus. So how exactly do you know what a bloke who has been dead over two thousand years (if he ever actually existed) would tell someone who wanted to have an abortion? Seems to me that your Jesus just says the same hateful things you’d like to say!

      @toob maniac You understand that this is a load of crap your saying .

      @Dyllan the one who’s comment above you .

  2. Thank you, Lawrence.

  3. What they really believe is that every life is precious as long as it looks just like them- but they don’t have the gumption to say that aloud because it’s not God’s truth -it’s only their own.

    • IncognitoTorpedo | March 7, 2020 at 12:38 PM | Reply

      @Claudette J Literally every post in this thread is blaming death sentences on racism, poverty, and having the “wrong” religion. I pointed out that usually those aren’t the primary reason. Do you even know the meaning of “off topic”?

    • He did look like me. We both had two arms, two legs, two eyes, one head.

    • It’s precious until birth.After that you are on your own.

    • Ugly German Truths | March 7, 2020 at 9:08 PM | Reply

      also as long as it can be conned into following their religion and paying into the church coffers. If they see that option vanish, the eagerness to protect that life goes drastically down.

      Occasionally you’ll even run into a special talent that demands all non believers should be killed, putting the hypocrisy to the extreme.

    Wow…this video is very profound. I can imagine that when a Trump supporting MAGAT “evangelical Christian” watches this their head will spin around like in the Exorcist. So…send it to all that fit into that category!!!

    • Barbara Winterbourne | March 7, 2020 at 7:13 AM | Reply

      Evangelicals are a odd form of christianity but please don’t put trumps name in the same text as them. He is a heathen a evil man. Evangelicals are not just misguided in how and what they believe.

      msmbc waited until he was dead to talk about this we where begging news stations to give this case attention in the last week of his death that could have saved his life

    • On the flip side its hyprocrocy to be anti death penalty and pro killing of babies in the womb.

      @Perro dehont “The United States has the highest maternal mortality rate in the developed world”
      They also have (at least in the “Abstinence only” hypocrite states) the highest rates for underage pregnancies and REPEAT underage pregancies.
      Out of spite, cause if the kiddos HAVE to sin, they should bear the consequences… i.e. carry to term. Which ignores that a non marginal number of them WILL DIE due to these policies.
      But yeah every life is precious and condoms are massmurder… cause… reasons?

    • Ugly German Truths | March 7, 2020 at 8:53 PM | Reply

      @Rene Curry Indeed. Pro choice is the declaration that only ONE person in the world has a right to determine if a pregnancy is appreciated or not. The biological owner of the Uterus. Not your womb? Not your choice.

      I think i remember something about conservatives wanting to see a government as small as possible… sounds like they want it so small that it can be shoved into each vagina in the nation, weirdly expanding administrative overreach and micromanagement despite the other paroles conservatives always are in favor of,,,

  8. Truly shocking what goes on in Alabama. It belongs in some other backward country, not in the US.

  9. This was unbearable to watch and listen to, politics have too many double standards

    • Kathryn Shaw | March 7, 2020 at 7:03 PM | Reply

      Because politicians are frought with double standards, We the People need to remove these decisions from their hands. Nine deaths in three years is a record that any serial killer could be proud of. Unfortunately, these same States do not help protect and provide for that embryo, resulting from violence, once it actually becomes a living, breathing person. If the government insists on inserting itself into a woman’s life regarding it’s most intimate details, it must be prepared to follow through with necessary support.

    Wonder how many homeless and hungry children live in Alabama.

    • Allot, also in mississippi.

    • @Mark bodman if God can tell us how to perform abortions in the Bible, then who am I to go against Him?

    • I can see from ur comments to others people that ur not looking to change anyone’s mind…ur just here to say ur a man, and u think ur better than any woman, or any other race of man. My brother is exactly like u. He hates me because he can not control me. My daddy taught me to listen to my gut and to live my life to please me and no one else. Many of us women have Daddy’s like that. U can’t control us sweetie so stop trying to control our bodies.

    • @Kathleen Flacy did he really compare a little boy to a little girl who was forced to be pregnant? Wow, he sounds just like my brother, who molested me as a child. Sick men tend to get very angry when they r told what they do is wrong. I pray I’m wrong, but I have worked with to many women who have had the same story as mine.

    • Kathleen Flacy | March 7, 2020 at 6:41 PM | Reply

      Claudette J The trauma of being physically or sexually abused is awful for both girls and boys, it’s just the boys can’t get pregnant. The guy arguing about abused boys not being considered is a nutter. Both are ignored equally by the system.

    Pro-life = Anti-women or Anti-abortion

    There’s nothing ‘pro’ about regression, suppression and the endangerment of women.

    “Every sperm is sacred..” – Monty Python

    The hypocrisy of the right wing knows no bounds.

    • @Mark bodman : what was before the fertilized egg, and before that, and before that…..
      But so know, the sentence in the Monty Python sketch pointed on the passage in the Bible that hid get agree if a sperm is spilled on the ground. Therefore they say that God suggest that every sperm is sacred.
      But a lot of people here do not understand that they point on the idiocy of the Bible.

    • @Mark bodman : do you have any information where these 20 trillion went? Can you show who got that money?

    • @Albert Green : I only ask you what you do to support families in trouble, I never said you have to pay. You find any fertilized egg should be protected therefore you must be very protective of born children. What about fertilized egg with genetic defects?
      At least you do not have idiotic religious reasons. That’s a plus for you.

    • Ugly German Truths | March 7, 2020 at 8:59 PM | Reply

      @Albert Green NOBODY murders babies through abortion. A Fetus only turns into a baby ONCE IT’S BORN.

  13. Since when are People of Color deemed precious to Gov. Ivey? She and the other Governors who allow this to go on are serial killers. Government sanctioned lynch mobs.

    • Several courts chose to execute this man. The judge would of needed legal reasons to not follow through. And the race card is just that. Used to alter facts.

    • @Mark bodman you’re wrong he could have gotten a stay from Gov. Kay Ivey, who probably got high fives and thumbs up in her subsequent KKK meeting.

    • Rhodeccia Carter | March 7, 2020 at 7:22 PM | Reply

      THEY JUST EXECUTED 👨⛓️⚰️ GEORGE STINNEY AGAIN… JIM CROW IS BACK.. KKK👹

    • Ugly German Truths | March 7, 2020 at 8:56 PM | Reply

      @Mark bodman The court can only sentence somebody if there IS a death penalty on the books. If every life is precious their first legal initiative should be to remove that law from the code and punish only with non lethal methods and sentences. And until then a governor professing such a pro life conviction can definitely show mercy to every single inmate of Death Row out of principle. IF they truly mean it and thus want to save lives.

  14. If ultra conservatives made laws, this country would have the same laws as Saudi Arabia.

      you really think that Matlock? LOL Really Parry Mason? LOL, So you offend the Muslim community by looking down at Sharia law .
      Considering the ultra conservative or far right has less voice than the far left in the Democrat party. So I can say if the Far left made the laws
      we would be a Communist Country in a short time.

    • Alex Hamilton and you’re probably right. So how about we all respect and follow the Constitution and keep building this great nation.

  15. “every life is a precious gift from God”…except after they are born…or come from a non-white race….or have political views different from yours….or have a spiritual faith different from yours….or…

      Imagine growing up, knowing your parents supported abortion. Some of the far left, use abortion as a statement and cheer it on

  20. The death penalty allows right wing cowards to pose as “tough guys” because they confuse cowardly cruelty with strength.

    • Alex Hamilton | March 7, 2020 at 2:51 PM | Reply

      Mainely the person on death row has several chances for appeals they also had a choice before they committed a crime. The unborn child has no appeals or choice.

    • @Alex Hamilton The “unborn” has no rights.
