Lesbian Episcopal priest is new head of National Abortion Federation

Abortion is the deliberate and intentional killing of an unborn human being. In the United States and countless countries across the world, in the name of a woman’s “right” over her body, that killing is given legitimacy by law and vehemently defended by “feminists”.

The pro-abortion movement is nothing less than a demonic death cult. In recent years, the unremitting corruption of the United States has even led to Christian and Jewish clergy “blessing” abortion clinics. See, for example:

Now, a lesbian Episcopal priest, the “very reverend” Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, takes the abomination further by becoming the president and CEO of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) — a multinational organization of abortion providers and practitioners in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Australia, and many Eurpean countries. According to the NAF, its members “perform” half of all abortions in North America.

Ragsdale is the president and professor of theology of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In a speech at a Jan. 24, 2010 event organized by the Jane Fund, a Massachusetts-based group that raises funds for abortions, Ragsdale called abortion “a blessing” and said she was “angry and fed up” at people who had spoken out again her sexuality and her radical stance on abortion.

Claire Chretien reports for LifeSiteNews, Nov. 5, 2019, that the National Abortion Federation (NAF) has announced that its new president and CEO is Katherine Ragsdale, a lesbian Episcopal “priest” and longtime abortion activist.

When the news was announced, Ragsdale, who had been NAF’s interim president and CEO since September 2018, extolled abortion providers as “some of my personal heroes and modern-day saints.”

NAF’s previous CEO and president, Vicki Saporta, was paid a salary of $392,018 in 2017, according to the organization’s publicly available tax records.

In 2011, Ragsdale married another female Episcopal priest named Mally Lloyd. at the Anglican Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston. Bishop M. Thomas Shaw performed the ceremony. It is unclear if Ragsdale and Lloyd are still together, as Ragsdale’s bio on NAF’s website makes no mention of Lloyd.

In an April 2019 speech at a Kentucky Reproductive Freedom Fund fundraiser, Ragsdale claimed that the Bible says nothing about abortion and that it’s dishonest and manipulative to call the human person in the womb a “baby.” Her audience laughed when Ragsdale mocked pro-life advocates who oppose partial-birth abortion by saying: “‘One inch from life,’ they say while showing a picture of a Gerber baby. Apart from ‘one inch from life’ being a lie, the Gerber baby image is a lie. And actually, using the word ‘baby’ is a manipulative lie.”

Comments by NAF-affiliated abortionists, however, paint a different picture. Undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), a prolife organization founded by journalist David Daleidan, taken at a NAF conference shows abortionists admitting that the work they do is “killing,” complaining how “difficult” it is to tear apart a fetus, and lamenting that they’re not given a place to discuss the “heads that get stuck that we can’t get out.”

Notorious late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, at least eight of whose “patients” had a “medical emergency” in the course of their abortion, also admitted to a BBC reporter, “I think that it is a baby, and I use [the word] with patients.” When the reporter hesitantly asked, “And you don’t have a problem…with…killing a baby?,” Carhart said without flinching, “I have no problem if it’s in the mother’s uterus.”

Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life and president of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, told LifeSiteNews:

“For decades, Katherine Ragsdale, a false prophet, has been trying to put religious vestments on child-killing. She led the ‘Religious Coalition for Abortion Rights’ (now the ‘Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice’), which actually provides rites of blessing for parents about to kill their children, and for the facilities in which the blood is shed…[and also provides] Scripture studies that attempt to say exactly the opposite of what Scripture says about what God thinks of the shedding of innocent blood.”

Fr. Pavone said it’s not surprising that NAF chose Ragsdale to lead it:

“It actually reveals one of the greatest weaknesses of the abortion industry: science is not on their side, logic is not on their side, and history is not on their side. They ran out of arguments a long time ago to try to justify abortion. So now, all they have left is to disguise it in ‘spirituality.’ They try in vain to take the stigma out of abortion — but that effort continues, and that is what this new development represents.

For decades, Fr. Pavone has helped helps former abortionists and their staff “deal with the wounds abortion inflicts on them.” He said:

“A big part of their healing is to dig themselves out of the many layers of lies that they told themselves to justify the killing they carried out. Those lies take many forms: rationalization; intellectualization; and here, in the example of False Prophet Ragsdale’s leadership, ‘spiritualization.’ And the lies by which spiritual and biblical language attempt to justify murder are among the most damaging to those who fall captive to them.”

I have asked the following question for many years, and have never received an answer (a lot of insults and threats, but never an answer)…”If your morals allow you to kill the most innocent and defenseless among us, what exactly does your morals stop you from doing?

Their “morals” can be summarized thusly: Do what thou wilt

Someone I know is into Wicca, and she said something like that, and I asked her if she knew Aleister Crowley and that the phrase came from him, allegedly.

Exactly, morals, ethics are defined by what they stop us from doing. Urges, drives, desires are material, morals are immaterial, “non-local”. I’ve made the point elsewhere that God didn’t imbue us with free will but rather with free won’t. Everything we do or don’t do is a choice

Jackie Puppet

Interesting; I’ve never heard it described as free won’t…

That’s from Wilder Penfield, the great neurobiologist. He did experiments in which he asked people to think of doing something and then immediately veto the impulse to do it. He was able to locate urges and desires in their physical bodies but not so the “vetoing” don’t-do-it function, that was “non-local”, immaterial. He regarded that element of our selves as being more essential, our souls, our consciences. The urges and desires were just bio-mechanics, physical responses to stimuli. So he said our essential selves are characterized by the exercise of “free wont”. Of course we still have to choose one… Read more »

The “Very Reverend” should come clean and just join the Church of Satan and be done with it. Her life and “work” is an abomination, a continuous blasphemy. If it can be said that a persons’ face is a reflection of their spirit that’s definitely the case with Ragsdale. She looks like a man pretending to be a woman pretending to be a man

If Lucifer had a daughter. Abomination + abomination. And what will she say to the Righteous Judge when her time comes?

“She” will say that she didn’t intend to commit sin. It worked for Hilary. It won’t work with the Righteous Judge however

Makes perfect sense – a non-breeding dyke hell-bent on deception , is in charge of this abortion organization.

If she can’t/won’t (and thank God for that part) breed, then neither shall others. Typical leftist mentality – if I can’t do this, neither can anyone else.

And if I don’t like something,I’ll make sure anybody who DOES like it is SEVERELY punished,Rights be damned.

The people behind the progressive feminist movement have all-but destroyed the normal family unit (Rothchild, Rockefeller and his elite pals wanted to put women to work so they could tax both adults in the household, but on top of that, working women are less likely to reproduce than stay-at-home-moms If an ILLEGAL puts one foot into America THEY get full Constitutional Rights and will be defended by ACLU & SPLC. If an ILLEGAL’s BABY gets BORN/one foot into America THEY get full Constitutional Rights and will be defended by ACLU & SPLC. If a Duly Born American Child puts one… Read more »

“MY body, MY choice, MY rights. Freedom of CHOICE. Right to CHOOSE.”
They ALWAYS forget-“MY RESPONSIBILITY.”

William
Member

And they always forget the rights of their babies to not be killed and dismembered and sold for parts. That’s a pretty fundamental right. I think most legal scholars would agree on that. But to them babies are clumps of cells, pregnancy tissue, parasites. If that’s the case, what does that make them? Demon-haunted wastes of human skin IMO, like the Very Satanic mizzzzz Ragsdale

If you can kill someone before they are born. What’s wrong with killing them after they are born?

Grandfather was a Deacon, yes a Deacon in the Episcopal Church the first part of the last century. He would not recognize this “Church” now and neither does God! God’s words do not change! They choose to mislead the flock. I would not want to be in their shoes the day of judgement. Their game here on earth is their reward. God have mercy on the souls they mislead!

That’s why we’ve left the Episcopal church in droves for those who have preserved the faith. It’s no surprise, when the whole sinking foundation was made on willful/sinful divorce….

So when do the blood sacrifices start? You all know, throwing live babies into the flames into Baal? Or maybe throw living babies on an altar, and rip their hearts out like the Aztecs. I guess they just enjoy dismembering them in the womb too much. Anyone that supports this is free to comment and try to rationalize this. Try also to explain how you are still a Christian and can still support this atrocity.

False prophet for a false religion. What an abominable disgrace. The Apostle Paul gives very clear directives about the role of women in the Church; in 1 Corinthians 14: 34-35 he explicitly forbids women from speaking in church and requires them to be submissive. Jesus Christ consistently teaches as “it is written” yet people like Ragsdale seem to think that Christ yields to them which is the heresy of our time. If Ragsdale were Christian she wouldn’t dream of calling herself a priest. If Ragsdale were Christian, she wouldn’t dream of calling herself a lesbian. Ragsdale spits in the face… Read more »

She is really not a servant of our Lord Jesus Christ. She is a servant of Moloch the Babylonian god who demand child sacrifices if you wanted it’s favor.

Once Satan puts his nose firmly under your tent, any ungodly act is justifiable. When the Episcopal Church scripturally left me, I left the church as has every member of my family … All living generations of us. This just provides another justification and firm direction by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to continue my Christian journey walking away from the evil that the Episcopal Church has chosen to follow.

Churches are defying the very tenets of their foundations. The sanctity of life!
It is appalling to me,, and its not just the Episcopal Church, the Roman Catholic Church is encouraging a schism with the Liberal Pope we have.
Satan must be enjoying this.

Episcopal and priest is an oxymoron, lesbian and pro-abortion an absurdity too. This is no Christian priest I recognize.

Well, this just goes to prove that there are quite a large number of churches that do not preach the only true Bible of the English Language, The KJV1611. A queer female priest supporting the horrific act of abortion. This is SATANIC.

Now’s there’s a surprise: A capital criminal promoting a capital crime?

How about if Christians, are you ready to get back to the Bible’s immutable and integral triune moral law instead of man’s capricious man-made edicts?

For more on how the Bible’s triune moral law (the Ten Commandments and their respective statutes and judgments) applies and should be implemented today as the law of the land, google free online book “Law and Kingdom: Their Relevance Under the New Covenant.”

Then, at the same location, “The Romans 13 Template for Biblical Dominion…”

Then “A Biblical Constitution: A Scriptural Replacement for Secular Government.”

What was that bible passage about it being like the days of Noah when the Son of Man returns? Seems we are sliding that way like a Crisco greased bob sled.
These “priests” or whatever they call themselves are definitely NOT Christians, they are worshipping Baal. Just like the Canaanites sacrificing infants to their demons Molech and Baal. They’re cranking up the fires of Gehenna.
