A matter of life and death

Almost nine million abortions: 550 every day; 3,800 every week; 16,000 every month; 200,000 every year. Every one is a human life.

Peter Saunders, chief executive of the Christian Medical Fellowship, writing in Trtiple Helix,  the CMF magazine on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Abortion Act,  says there are 100,000 people alive in Northern Ireland today because they don't have a law that allows abortion like we do in the British mainland.

Apparently these figures are not sufficient. The We Trust Women campaign, driven by abortion providers BPAS and approved by the Royal College of Midwives, the British Medical Association and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, wants to decriminalise abortion completely, so that women can have an abortion at any time, for any reason.

No one, says Dr Saunders, would contemplate dismembering a newborn baby and throwing its body parts into a bucket. Yet because the baby is still in the womb, abortion is considered acceptable. Is tthis not discrimination nased on age, size or neurological capacity, just like racism or sexism? It is not, he says, too late to do something about it.

Think about it.
