Cawthorn causes outrage after using the phrase “earth vase” in anti-abortion speech

Madison Cawthorn (RN.C.) was criticized after commenting on abortion during a speech in the House of Representatives on Friday, Daily Kos report.

26-year-old congressman supports Trump – who has a history of rhetoric and has been accused of sexually harassed college classmates – starting with a thought experiment in which he compared an aborted fetus to a Polaroid painting that was ripped off before it could fully develop enough.

Similar to this, borrowed from anti-abortion activist Seth Gruber, promote HuffPost writer Sara Boboltz to pen Piece titled “Madison Cawthorn thinks your pregnancy is a Polaroid or a sunset or something.”

His next argument provoked even more outrage:

“The precious works of our creator, conceived and arranged, encounter death before they breathe life. Eternal souls sanctified and bestowed by almighty God sanctify and bestow upon them. colors of life denied their birth.”

Author, diplomat, and Oxford academic PhD, Jennifer Cassidy tweeted a clip of Cawthorn’s remarks, which soon went viral. In her postCassidy writes that Cawthorn compared “American women” to earthen ships.

Few is different Twitter user agreed with her interpretation.

However, this interpretation hardly fits the context of the passage to which Cawthorn is alluding.

Cawthorn seems to have been quoting 2 Corinthians, an early Christian letter often attributed to Paul of Tarsus. In the New King James translation, the passage read, “For it was God who commanded light to shine out of the darkness, who shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the sight of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the outstanding power may be God’s and not ours.”

Since Paul considers himself one of the “earth pots,” the term cannot refer to women. Many bibles scholar see it as a reference to physical body humans possess.

With this interpretation, it seems that Cawthorn, an evangelical Christian, used an “earth vase” to refer not only to the mother’s body, but to the unborn baby’s body. Cawthorn causes outrage after using the phrase “earth vase” in anti-abortion speech
