Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them ...
is like a [wise] man which built a house, and digged deep, and laid the foundations on a rock:
and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock
(Luke 6:47-48)

Let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
For other foundation can no man lay that is laid, which is Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 3:10b-11)

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm 11:3)

"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee;
and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee" (Jeremiah 1:5a)

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: ... Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect;
and in thy book all my members were written ... when as yet there was none of them" (Psalm 139:14-16)

"Mourning the loss of over 8 million children...
50 years ago today, 27th October, the Abortion Act 1967 was passed ...
It is hard to fathom how many pre-born babies have been killed through abortion.
It is desperately sad to consider all the innocent lives taken and to see God-given life valued so cheaply by so many.
So today we mourn. We pray that God will forgive us. But we also look with faith to God, pleading with Him to stop this evil practice.
And we rededicate ourselves to play our part in ending abortion" [Christian Concern, 27th October 2017]

8 Million Roses
"I was inspired to write 8 Million Roses after reading an article about a man who walking along the Thames ...
when he came across a group of women throwing red roses into the river. When he asked them what they were doing,
they explained that they were throwing the roses to mark the number of innocent lives lost to abortion on a single working day in England ...
There were 800 roses in the river that day" [Melissa Hubert]

Cry of the Innocent

8.8 Millions Abortions

In that time, over 8 million pre-born babies have been robbed of their right to life...
Remembering the lost little ones" [Christian Concern]

"In the past 50 years 8.7 million children have silently disappeared from the UK...
Commemorating the missing children" [Pro-Life Alliance]

In remembrance of the 8.8 million babies whose lives have been taken by abortion since the passing of the 1967 Abortion Act,
we will be holding a minute's silence on Friday 27 October 2017.
The Abortion Act was passed on 27 October 1967 at 11.05am.
This is when we will begin the silence" [Silence for '67 at Parliament Square or in your home or workplace]

"Pray for pro-life groups to grow and be effective. Pray for politicians to be wise and courageous.
Pray for churches and church leaders who will speak the truth in love.
Pray for more help for women in crisis pregnancies and more support for alternatives to abortion.
Commit the year ahead to starting to make all of this happen" [Christian Concern, 27 October 2017]

"What we mark today, is nothing less than the greatest shame of our nation. The fact that we neuter the protections in our laws for our tiniest countrymen and countrywomen is a horror and disgrace on a massive scale..." [Lord Alton of Liverpool, 27 October 2017]

"The Abortion Act reaches its 50th Anniversary on Friday 27 October 2017. In these last fifty years nearly 9 million unborn babies have been aborted in England, Scotland, and Wales. ... While I strongly believe there are two victims for every abortion, for now I deliberately focus on the unborn victims, not the women, and the almost incomprehensible scale of destruction of innocent lives..."

"A leading doctor has called for abortions to be decriminalised and made much more freely available. Professor Lesley Regan, president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, has said that abortions should be treated no differently from other 'medical procedures' ... The doctors' union (the BMA), the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and the 'We Trust Women' campaign by abortion industry leaders have already signalled their support for such a move..."

When Does the Unborn Baby Feel Pain?  (22 July 2010)
"A UK government-funded study recently concluded that the unborn baby ('fetus') cannot feel pain in the first 24 weeks (a similar American study placed the threshold at 29 or 30 weeks).

What Does God Think? Reflections in the 50th Anniversary of the Abortion Act  (24 October 2017)
"50 years; 8.8 million abortions; 550 every day; 3,800 every week; 16,000 each month; 200,000 every year. That's one Airbus 380 or 32 Dunblanes every day. The entire population of Wales and Scotland over all; 15% of Britain's population. Or to put it another way, there are 100,000 people alive in Northern Ireland today precisely because they don't have a law like ours: sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, uncles and aunts, grandparents even. Teachers, nurses, pilots, lawyers, drivers, bakers, artists, musicians..."

Oprah's Magazine: God's 'in' Abortions?  (23 September 2017)
"Because of his 'oneness' worldview that God is 'in' everyone and everything is 'in' God, Dr. Willie parker believes that God sanctions aborting-killing of babies ... it needs to be stated that while the 'act' of abortion is outside of God's love neither the aborted baby nor mother are outside of God's love..."

Abortion Truths  (21 October 2006)
"Without doubt abortion is a hugely divisive issue. But why is that? ... The reason why the abortion debate is so explosive is because at the very heart of the debate is the claim that abortion brings about the death of an unborn human being. That is what the debate is really about..."

Doesn't a Woman Have the Right to Control Her Own Body?  (Spring 1991)
"[T]his pro-choice argument ... logically fails even if we hypothetically grant that its strong view of personal autonomy is correct. The unborn entity within the pregnant woman's body is not part of her body. The conceptus is a genetically distinct entity with its own unique and individual gender, blood type, bone-structure, and genetic code. Although the unborn entity is attached to its mother, it is not part of her. ... though for a time [it is] living inside her body, [it] is not a part of her body..."

Abortion: The Answer's in Genesis  (May 1998)
"Many people, sadly including many Christians, think abortion is a difficult and controversial issue. But just like the 'days of creation' issue, there is no difficulty or controversy at all - providing we allow the Bible to teach us, and not impose the ideas of fallible people on to its plain meaning. There are only two issues to consider: (1) Is the unborn child ('fetus') a human being? (2) If so, is it ever acceptable to kill the unborn? The answer to both questions is in Genesis..."

Abortion and the Bible: Pro-Life or Pro-Choice?  (1984/2008)
"Is abortion moral or immoral? Is the unborn life in the mother's womb (the 'fetus') a separate individual human being, or is it just part of the mother's body? Does it have a right tom life? Should the decision to abort be left up to a woman and her doctor? Is abortion murder? Is it justified of the mother is unmarried or in cases of poverty, deformity, handicaps, abuse, incest, or rape? What if having a baby would cause serious inconvenience or even threaten the life of the mother? Should a Christian be pro-life or pro-choice? What does the Bible teach?..."

The two doctors were filmed agreeing to sex-selective abortions during a Daily Telegraph undercover investigation, 'I don't ask questions., If you want a termination, you want a termination', said one. There is injustice in this decision. it exposes the agenda against the right to life within the Establishment, and this agenda affects all of us directly. Sex-selective abortion is illegal under the 1967 Abortion Act..."

The Political Issue

Abortion Is Still Communism's Deadliest Weapon  (31 October 2017)
"Communism lost the Cold War [sic], but its most effective weapon against the West - abortion - is still claiming lives. From 1917 Russian embraced sexual freedom, underpinned by the right to abortion. Western campaigners followed suit much later, with 1960s cultural Marxists regarding abortion as the perfect way of undermining Western culture in a secret war against capitalism. Historically, in the UK, abortion was not a priority even among the far-left, let alone working-class voters..."

Tell the Unpleasant Truth About Abortion  (28 October 2017)
"A total of 113 MPs from five political parties have demanded that Home Secretary Amber Rudd introduce 'buffer zones' outside abortion clinics to stop pregnant women being subjected to 'misogynistic' abuse. As usual with such claims, there is not a shred of evidence, but what a strange way to mark the 50th anniversary of the Abortion Act..."

"Ealing Central and Acton MP Rupa Huq, overtly Muslim but simultaneously a pro-abortion activist, disapproves of the line taken by the protestors [keeping vigil outside a Marie Stopes abortion clinic in Ealing]. That is her right. Much more dangerously, however, she is now taking steps to have them silenced using the heavy hand of the state. A couple of weeks ago she called for Parliament to ban any demonstrations outside clinics as part of its legislative initiative against domestic violence (!)..."

EU Moves to 'Criminalise' Pro-Life Views and 'Abortion Denial'  (15 September 2017)

Everything Today's Lot Hate  (09 September 2017)
"If today's Abraham could get God down to just one righteous politician, Britain would be saved - and we'd have Jacob Rees-Mogg to thank for it. Britain - indeed the modern West - seems as moribund as Sodom once was, and for similar reasons: godlessness, decadence, hedonism, perversion, moral decrepitude. Our politics reflects that state of affairs, with the electorates unerringly choosing those who reflect their own intellectual and moral failings..."

The Empire Strikes Back Against Our Global Abortion Crusade  (06 August 2017)
"Europe is committing mass suicide. Demographically, morally and culturally we are killing ourselves. There is a noble side, though, to this self-annihilation. Our extermination is entirely voluntary and self-inflicted. ... It's truly astonishing to see a Conservative minister promote a culture of death. Does [International Development Secretary Priti Patel] not realise that there have now been [nearly] 9 million abortions in Great Britain since the 1967 Act was passed - a figure higher than the holocaust?..."

 

The 'Overpopulation' Issue

China's Missing Women and the Silence of the Feminists  (21 January 2018)
"Despite the relaxation of the one-child policy, China's birth rate is reportedly continuing to fall. The decrease is blamed on a declining population of women of child-bearing age ... the horrifying destruction of unborn baby girls has so badly skewed the birth rations that China is now missing millions of women from its population ... One would have thought that even those obsessed with the 'right to choose' abortion would be concerned about the forced abortions suffered by Chinese women, but the silence has been deafening..."

Report: Down Syndrome People Face 'Extinction' Through Selective Abortions  (19 January 2016)
"According to [the author], society's attitude toward Down children reflects an obsession 'with making life as perfect as possible.'  Where advances in genetics 'hold out the possibility of creating designer babies with no birth defects at all', mothers may wonder why they should carry to term a baby who will have disabilities that will present special challenges to parents. ... 'The true moral test of a society', says [the author], 'is not how pretty, sober or well organised it is - but how it treats its most vulnerable, even its most difficult, citizens. And the true sign of grace in a man is his ability to look at something that is supposedly ugly, or just different from himself, and see beauty'..."

Abortion for Down's Syndrome - Tragic Story, Review of Trends and Personal Reflections  (28 October 2011)
"There was a tragic story in the Daily Mail yesterday titled 'Having an Amnio Test Ruined my Life'.

Mugged by Ultrasound: Why So Many Abortion Workers Have Turned Pro-Life  (25 January 2010)
"Abortion rights activists have long preferred to hold themselves at some remove from the practice they promote; rather than naming it, they speak of 'choice' and 'reproductive freedom'. But those who perform abortions have no such luxury. Instead, advances in ultrasound imaging and abortion procedures have forced providers ever close to the nub of their work. Especially in abortions performed far enough along in gestation that the fetus is recognizably a tiny baby, this intimacy exacts an emotional toll, stirring sentiments for which doctors, nurses, and aides are sometimes unprepared..."

The Abortion Industry

Banning Pro-Life Vigils is a Chilling Assault on Freedom of Speech  (13 April 2018)
"Peaceful, pro-life vigils have been taking place in Ealing for more than 23 years. There was never any problem at all until a couple of years ago when a counter-protest group called Sister Survivor formed and decided to set up 'counter demonstrations'. The face of Sister Survivor is Rupa Huq, the local MP for Ealing ... Observers have noted that they were the ones making most of the noise and their protests were not primarily aimed at helping mothers, but more at harassing Christians and others who were kneeling in prayer and quietly handing out leaflets..."

Free Speech Terminated  (12 April 2018)
As Ealing Council in West London voted unanimously to impose a Public Spaces Protection Order outside the Marie Stopes clininc, yesterday's Telegraph reported that 'anti-abortion protesters were last night banned from demonstrating outside a clinic which provided terminations to pregnant women.' This is despite the complete lack of evidence of harassment ... the campaign was mainly driven by pressure from the abortion lobby and prominent public figures..."

Anti-Prayer 'Safe Zones' Around Abortion Clinics Are a Threat to Civil Liberties  (11 April 2018)
"Women who want an abortion will no longer be harassed by zealous pro-life protestors outside the Marie Stopes clinic in Ealing. No longer will they be bludgeoned with choruses of 'Baby murderer!' or barked at with threats that they'll 'go to hell'. ... How many priests or compassionate counsellors actually shout 'Baby murderer!' or 'go to hell' at vulnerable women isn't known. Nor is it entirely clear why they would do so. All the evidence suggests that those who protest outside abortion clinics in the UK do so quietly, prayerfully and considerately..."

"When did you last buy a packet of fags? Cigarette smoking used to be cool ... Then the anti-smoking fascists decided you needed to make 'informed choices' when you inhaled the weed hated by the National Socialists. ... If a woman is going to have an abortion doesn't she have the right to make an 'informed choice' ... To see or not to see, that is the question. Every major social reform movement in history has used images to expose the evil it is fighting against... slavery... child labour... civil rights... smoking... "

Out of Control Abortion Myths  (12 February 2017)
"Whenever the abortion debate comes up, you can expect some pretty wild and woolly offerings from the pro-death camp. They seem to thrive on ad hominem attacks, non-sequiturs, red herrings, emotionalism, and just plain lunacy when it comes to defending their cause. Logic, fact, reason and reality seem to be missing as we hear them screaming in their bullhorns, waving their placards, and trolling online or in the news media..."

Abortion Wars: Seeing What We Kill  (30 January 2010)
"The mainstream media is quite good at using its powers of influence to push agendas. The image-heavy MSM can create news and affect public opinion simply by the images that are shown, and how those images are presented ... if the MSM can push along social agenda by its use of imagery, it can do the same by not using certain images. I refer here to the most obvious example of this: abortion. When was the last time you saw a graphic image of the 'product of abortion' in the MSM?..."

They wouldn't consider it a double homicide unless 2 people died, and 2 people did die: the mother and the baby."

LIFE
"Life is unique in the UK. We combine prolife advocacy and education work with nationwide services providing alternatives to abortion. We support anyone facing an unexpected pregnancy, pregnancy loss or after abortion. We also strive to inspire and inform the next generation to value all human life from beginning to end.

Life has spent almost five decades providing practical support to empower women to continue with their pregnancy. There are thousands of people alive today because Life reached out to their mothers with the support needed at a time of crisis. We have responded to the abortion industry's culture of death and maltreatment of women with a culture of life, compassion and respect for women and their unborn children. We will remain steadfast in our support of women in the face of increased intimidation from the abortion lobby at all levels. We will remain steadfast in the struggle to protect the unborn child."

Abort67
Abort67 is the name given to the public education project that seeks to change how we view abortion. In 1967 the Abortion Act was passed granting legal abortions to all women. Abort67's end goal is to make abortion unthinkable and to see the law give full protection to the unborn. The most effective way to change public policy is to first change public opinion. ... Abortion is not just a 'religious' issue, it is a matter of human rights that all should be concerned about."

notbornyet
"notbornyet is a space to explore the life issue in a relaxed, reasoned and respectful environment. You will find personal stories about unplanned and crisis pregnancy, accurate information, practical support, and importantly, hope. notbornyet started out of concern that some women were making a rushed and irreversible decision, under pressure from others, while they were vulnerable, without all the facts about the short and long term consequences of their choice. We are pro-women and for-children. notbornyet is the campaign website of Emily's Voice, a not-for-profit charity started to help Australians fall in love with the unborn, and encourage and support women with an unplanned or crisis pregnancy."

Christian Medical Comment
"CMC is a specialist blog majoring on issues at the interface of Christianity and Medicine with specific focus on the beginning and end of life. But my broader aim is to bring issues to the attention of Christians that I believe they should be informed and concerned about. I write mainly for a Christian readership but many of my readers hold strongly opposing views and frequently take issue with what I say. ... I am CEO of Christian Medical Fellowship, a UK-based organisation with 4,500 UK doctors and 1,000 medical students as members..."

Christian Concern
"At Christian Concern we have a passion to see the UK return to the Christian faith. Our nation has been shaped and defined by this faith for hundreds of years. Yet in the last few decades, the nation has largely turned her back on Jesus and embraced alternative ideas such as secular liberal humanism, moral relativism and sexual licence. The fruit of this can be seen in widespread family breakdown, immorality and social disintegration ... We engage on a broad large range of issues, including abortion, adoption and fostering, bioethics, marriage, education, employment, end of life, equality, family, free speech, Islamism, religious freedom, the sex trade, social issues and issues relating to sexual orientation..."

Online PDF:  A Christian Perspective on Abortion  (July-August 2017, IFB)
"This booklet has been produced to provide a Christian perspective on abortion. With the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Abortion Act on 27 October 2017, and the act coming into force on 27 April the following year, this booklet seeks to examine the issue of abortion and how the Church should respond to it. For some readers, you may already be be passionate about this issue and want to pass it on to other believers; for others, I hope this booklet challenges and inspires you to consider this matter further..."

The Issues of Life  (2006, Ambassador International, Belfast, NI / B. McCall Barbour, Edinburgh, UK)
"In the days of the Judges in Israel, 'every man did that which was right in his own eyes' (Judges 17:6). The folly of such a life principle is described by Solomon in proverbs 12:15 as 'the way of a fool' ... In this short work it is ... our intention to set out the principles of Scripture with regard to life, and then deal with several issues of morality and medicine. We are not in the business of trying to Biblically accommodate modern views or practices, but simply examine them against the standards of the Word of God."

Responding to the Culture of Death  (2001, DayOne Publications, Surrey, UK)
Much of modern medicine has gone seriously wrong. In its ethics and practice, it has departed from its historical roots, and has become a threat to all men, women, and children. This book does not seek to give trite, comfortable answers. Rather it develops a rugged bioethical framework, based on principles derived from the Bible, and supported by analyses of recent trends in medicine and science. Such an approach enables the reader to understand past, present, and future bioethical issues. But this book is not just for cosy, fireside reading. It wants you out of your armchair and doing - it calls for a response of 'principled compassion' to overcome this culture of death and gain the culture of life."

Abortion: The Crisis in Morals and Medicine  (1986, Inter-Varsity Press, Leicester, UK)
"Easy abortion is something with which we have become very familiar. In almost every country of the world abortion is legal in some circumstances, and in many it is very common. It is the subject of heated emotions on the part of those who favour it and those who do not. Where does the balance of the argument lie? This informative and honest book presents a realistic and carefully argued case for the compassionate protection of the unborn child as an innocent human life."

 

 

 

 

"I will give no deadly medicine to anyone if asked nor suggest such counsel,
nor in like manner will I give a woman a pessary to produce abortion"
(The Hippocratic Oath)

"I will maintain the utmost respect for human life from the time of conception,
even against threat I will not use my medical knowledge contrary to the laws of humanity"
(The Declaration of Geneva, 1948)

"Although there have been many changes in medicine, the spirit of the Hippocratic Oath cannot change ...
co-operation in the destruction of life by murder, suicide and abortion [is] the greatest crime"
(The British Medical Association, 1947)

"If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it?
and He that keepeth thy soul, doth not He knoweth it?
and shall not He render to every man according to His works?"
(Proverbs 24:11-12).

 

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way,
and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls
(Jeremiah 6:16)
