We pray court case leads to no change in NI abortion law

With judges at the Supreme Court, in recent days, sitting to hear a challenge to Northern Ireland’s abortion law, shame on Amnesty International and the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission (NIHRC).

It seems, as the Bible reminds us, that their ‘consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.’

These groups have no love for the unborn child, when they lodged a campaign to overturn the law on abortion on the grounds of so-called ‘human rights.’

What heartless individuals they all are, when they crave for permission to have a baby ruthlessly killed in the mother’s womb.

Let the truth be known.

Abortion is the killing of an unborn child in his or her mother’s womb.

From both a biblical and scientific perspective, life begins at the very moment of fertilisation.

And since abortion destroys a human being who is fearfully and wonderfully made in God’s image, it is murder.

Murder, in the womb and or of it, is strictly prohibited: ‘thou shalt not murder.’

From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognised as having the rights of a person – among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.

Regarding the current law, the NIHRC shamelessly said that it criminalises ‘exceptionally vulnerable’ women and girls and subjects them to ‘inhuman and degrading’ treatment.

Really? These words deserve the filing of an unborn baby abuse case against them.

We hope and pray that much wisdom will be given to the sitting judges on the Supreme Court so that no change whatsoever is made to the abortion law in Northern Ireland.

May they all come to see the invaluable worth and precious value of the unborn baby in the mother’s womb, and close the door forever on this inhumane abortion case.

We also appeal to them, in urgency, to contact lawmakers and politicians, on the floor of Holyrood in Edinburgh, and plead with them to begin repealing the Abortion (1967) Act, one of the worst ever laws enacted in this country.

If our Scottish politicians know anything about pity, kindness and compassion – they too would abort it forever with immediate effect.
