Arkansas Pastor On Reproductive Rights: A Woman Thinks 'She Has Rights Over Her Own Body' But 'That's Not True!'

Arkansas pastor Jeff Crawford argued over the weekend that a woman has no "right over her own body" because it is owned by God.

Arkansas pastor Jeff Crawford argued over the weekend that a woman has no "right over her own body" because it is owned by God.

During a Sunday sermon at Crosschurch about the dangers of pornography, Crawford likened the issue to abortion rights.

"We have bought into what I want to call this morning theological dualism," the pastor opined. "This is the idea that you can separate what goes on with our bodies with what goes on soul and spirit."

According to Crawford, the Bible contradicted the belief that people had a right to control their own bodies.

"This idea that you hear about in the abortion debate that it's a woman's right to choose and she has the right over her own body, no, that's not true!" he exclaimed. "What that means is that your arms and your legs and your head, it all belongs to God."
