Christian Professor Rebecca Todd Peters Claims “Abortion is a Moral Good”

February 26, 2019

A guest lecturer at Emory University in Georgia plans to tell students why she, as a Christian, believes that abortion is a “moral good.”

The lecture, “Reframing Choice: Abortion as a Moral Good,” is slated for Monday evening with Elon University Professor Rebecca Todd Peters, according to Campus Reform. She is the author of “Trust Women: A Progressive Christian Argument for Reproductive Justice.”

Peters told Campus Reform that she hopes her lecture will open up new conversations about abortion.

“My hope for the lecture is that it will generate a respectful and productive conversation about abortion and reproductive justice,” she said.

Emory College Republicans said they plan to attend and ask questions to help people understand “the disastrous implications of this speaker’s message,” according to the report.

In her book, Peters argued that women should be given the ability to make decisions about their own lives.

“The starting point of our ethical conversation should be women’s lives, [yet] the problem that we face in this country is our failure to trust women to act as rational, capable, responsible moral agents,” she wrote.

Then, in a column on Elon University’s website, she claimed women should not have to justify their reasons for aborting an unborn baby.

“There is nothing Christian about requiring women to ‘justify’ their reasons for abortion,” Peters wrote. “And there is certainly nothing Christian about forcing women to continue pregnancies against their will.”

If an abortion was just a medical procedure, then what Peters argued would be true, but abortion is not. An abortion kills another human being, a baby in their mother’s womb, violently and intentionally. The choice to kill another human being should not be a choice at all. Every human life is valuable and deserves to be protected.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
