Kamala Harris urged Baptist pastors to fight for “light” over darkness Thursday while at the same time advocating for the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

The Houston Chronicle reports Harris mentioned abortion during her speech to the National Baptist Convention in Houston, Texas, which about 2,000 pastors and church leaders attended.

Although Christianity recognizes the value of every human life from the moment of conception and condemns the killing of innocent human beings, Harris defended abortion as part of her talk.

She criticized Texas lawmakers for passing laws that protect unborn babies from abortion, saying women should be allowed to “make decisions about their own future,” according to the report.

“These ideals now hang in the balance, and in this moment then we count on the strength and conviction of our faith leaders to help lead us forward,” Harris said.

She attempted to portray her pro-abortion beliefs as Christian by bringing up how she went to church as a child and studied the Bible. She also implied that killing unborn babies in abortions is moral when she challenged the Baptist pastors to fight for the “light” over darkness.

Here’s more from the report:

Harris gave a nod to her own pastor, who she said was in attendance, and recalled attending a Baptist church while growing up in Oakland.

“As so many of us did, I learned in the Bible of the many teachings of the ever-present tension between darkness and light,” she said. “And I learned in these moments how important it is to recognize the power of faith.”

Thursday was not the first time the Democrat leader promoted abortion to American clergy. In June, Harris met a small group of Christian, Jewish and Islamic leaders to discuss ways to “protect reproductive rights” in anticipation that the U.S. Supreme Court would overturn Roe v. Wade.

She used the darkness and light metaphor during that meeting, too, telling religious leaders, “You all … have done extraordinary work, in particular of these last few years, to remind folks that they are not alone, that we are in this together, that there is a higher purpose, and that we should be guided by all that we know — that that gives us a chance of shining a light in the midst of dark moments and dark days.”

Most Christians, however, believe that the end of Roe is bringing about a better future for America.

The 1973 ruling forced states to legalize abortion on demand, leading to the deaths of more than 63 million unborn babies and hundreds of mothers. Now, states may protect unborn babies from abortion again, and 15 already have done so. As a result, tens of thousands of babies are being saved from violent abortion deaths.

And it is primarily Christians who are providing support and encouragement to pregnant and parenting mothers in need – although pro-lifers of other faiths and no faith are doing this, too. Through pregnancy centers, maternity homes and other charities, Christians across the U.S. are providing baby supplies, housing, financial assistance, parenting classes and more to help millions of mothers and babies thrive.
