Uygur, the founder of The Young Turks — a leftist outlet — even went on to cite specific Bible verses to support his claims.
Uygur noted that abortion rights have never even been a religious problem — it’s been a control problem.
To support his theory, Uygur cited passages from the book of Numbers — specifically from Chapter 5, which talks about the Hebrew practice of the ordeal of the bitter water, which, originally translated, says nothing about miscarriage or pregnancy.
Citing a New International Version translation of the verses, Uygur said, “‘The priest shall bring her and have her stand before the Lord.
… If you have gone astray while married to your husband and you have made yourself impure by having sexual relations with a man other than your husband’ — here, the priest is to put the woman under this curse — ‘may the Lord cause you to become a curse among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell.
