Supporters of abortion are on the wrong side of history and the wrong side of God’s law

The House of Lords’ decision to back the Northern Ireland abortion regulations is the final nail in the coffin for the attempts to prevent it coming to Ulster in all its ruthlessness.

Sadly in this case the saying ‘final nail in the coffin’ is literally what this will mean for tens of thousands. But history has a funny way of repeating itself.

If any of our past/present political representatives who have spearheaded and supported these moves for abortion to be introduced to our Province should ever have a statue or plaque erected in their memory, who knows, it may well be that some future generation will pull them down from their plinth and throw them into the Lagan.

It is not nice to be shown to be on the wrong side of history, even worse to be shown on the wrong side of God’s Law.

Yes, babies’ lives matter!

Rev John Coates, Newtownabbey
