Tweet of the Day- Abortion And Divine Control

I don't know whether this tweet refers to spontaneous or medical/surgical abortions, in the USA or worldwide. However, if you're going to praise any tweet, it should be one posted by God:

No, they don't, in part because the forced-birth crowd never acknowledges miscarriages as abortions and pro-choice advocates afford them the latitude. According to the United States National Library of Medicine

A miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy. Pregnancy losses after the 20th week are called stillbirths. Miscarriage is a naturally occurring event, unlike medical or surgical abortions.

A miscarriage may also be called a "spontaneous abortion."

There are medical or surgical abortions and there are spontaneous abortions, wherein "spontaneous" is an adjective and all of these events are abortions. Miscarriages are abortions, permitted by a god whom most religious Christians- largely opposed to abortion rights- believe is in control. 

They are free to support forced birth or even to maintain that abortions are contrary to God's will. However, if God is in control, the Christian right should have to answer for all those events they seemingly are convinced end a human life.
