Southern Baptist Leader Claims Words 'Zygotes, Embryos, Fetuses’ Oppress (Video)

Dr. Russell Moore, the president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, recently claimed that the scientific words "zygotes or embryos or fetuses" cause oppression.

According to RawStory.com, Dr. Moore made this claim while giving a prayer during the Susan B. Anthony List's 2014 Campaign for Life Gala and Summit event last week (video below).

“We know that tomorrow morning legislators in this city will be deciding whether or not to oppress the most vulnerable around us, not only with laws but also even before that with words, referring to persons you have created in your image as simply zygotes or embryos or fetuses or crisis pregnancies rather than persons, neighbors, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters,” said Dr. Moore.

Back in January, Moore told The Christian Post that Jesus "is a former embryo, a former zygote, a former fetus, a former crisis pregnancy who is now the ruler of the entire universe."

However, there is no evidence in the Bible that Jesus was ever a "crisis pregnancy."

Ironically, one of the other speakers at the "pro-life" gala was The Weekly Standard's Editor William Kristol, who recently advocated for more war: "A war-weary public can be awakened and rallied. Indeed, events are right now doing the awakening. All that’s needed is the rallying."
