Killing a baby is the opposite of care

I was struck by the messages on two of the placards displayed at Thursday’s pro-abortion rally in Belfast.

One placard said ‘Abortion is healthcare’!

Surely abortion – the killing of a baby – is the very opposite of heath and care.

Another placard said ‘My body, my choice’.

It’s that sort of attitude which leads to unwanted pregnancies in the first place.

This attitude could also be applied to crimes such as suicide bombing, and transporting illegal drugs inside one’s body, which just goes to show how dangerous an attitude it is.
