More than 8.7 million unborn children have been killed in the UK with the complicity of the state – in procedures funded by taxpayers, mostly men – over the 50 years which have elapsed since the passing of the Abortion Act 1967. That number is higher than the combined populations of Scotland and Wales, and it’s close to the population of Greater London.
We covered the issue of abortion in our 2015 general election manifesto (pp.5,6). We plan to lead some protests this year, and support others. It’s about time religious denominations showed some moral leadership on this issue, by announcing plans to mark the half-centenary of the vile Abortion Act, the enabler of the destruction of so many innocent lives.
Good news from the first day of the Trump administration. The start of the article:
If there was any doubt about President Donald Trump’s stance on abortion, he settled it Monday by using an executive order to bar U.S. aid to groups that provide or promote the procedure overseas.
The decision to reinstate the Republican policy known as the “Mexico City policy,” or the “global gag rule,” was delivered a day after the 44th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion and two days after the Women’s March on Washington and similar events across the country drew crowds to rally for reproductive rights, among other issues.
During the presidential campaign, Trump vowed to appoint “pro-life” Supreme Court justices. He said that if the Roe decision is overturned, the question of whether abortion is legal would go back to individual states.
The end of the article:
Abortion-rights group NARAL immediately issued a statement Monday condemning Trump’s move. “It’s telling that one of Trump’s first executive actions combines two of his favorite things: silencing anyone who disagrees with him and repressing women,” the group said. “With this action, Donald Trump has turned his anti-women rhetoric into policy, and made it more difficult for women and families all over the world to access vital reproductive care. He really is living up to the lowest of expectations.”
I find much of the language used by proponents of abortion utterly abhorrent. How could anyone with a moral compass refer to the killing of unborn children, ‘vital reproductive care’? They couldn’t. It’s no accident that feminists have always been enthusiastic supporters of abortion.
