A proof text of biblical errancy for feminists


“Several studies show that more than 89 percent of women who learn they will give birth to a child with Down syndrome choose to terminate their pregnancies.”

Isaiah 49:14-15
14 But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me;

my Lord has forgotten me.”

15 “Can a woman forget her nursing child,

that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? ”

Well, that depends. Does the baby have down’s syndrome? Is the woman an American?

Notice how feminists never trot this verse out as a proof of the Bible’s errancy. The obvious answer to Isaiah’s question is, in the United States, in 90 percent of down’s syndrome pregnancies, a resounding YES.  Can a woman forget her child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb?  Like so many debates in our society, everything hinges on the way one defines the word “compassion.”

Even these may forget,

yet I will not forget you.

Oh wait, I guess God did foresee the United States in 2012.  Never mind.
