Again, you err. These are not within the teachings of Christ.
Looks like a violent belief-meme of your own. The facts do not support
it. The whole 'go forth and multiply' thing was in the old testament,
not the new, although a few passages in Ecclesiastes actually support
abortion, or at least miscarriage, the 'untimely birth', as being
preferable to a life of sin.
Using the philosophy of Christ to gain followers would demand not
adherence to a particular ruler, but to Christ himself. Very different
from the postulation of yours.
