Abortion: Time to End “Woman’s Right to Choose” … Let Public Choose – Now!

Comment: 

Daily, we hear the mantra that we need a second BREXIT referendum because we know so much more now that we did in 2016 when we voted to leave the EU. 

Well, if that is true about BREXIT, it is true, also, about abortion because there is no question that we know MUCH more about life in the womb today than we knew when the Abortion Act was passed in 1967.  

If Rachel Riley’s comments in the above interview about the behaviour of her baby in the womb don’t convince you, check out the several 3D videos available on YouTube where you can see for yourself the activity of unborn babies.  Very busy little people, no question about it! 

For the record, I saw Rachel Riley interviewed on this subject on Sky News where the female interviewer was clearly – it seemed to me – taken aback by her remarks, and none too pleased, realising, no doubt, the implications for the “pro-choice” lobby of what Rachel Riley was saying.  However, try as I have done, I can’t find it on YouTube.  Thus, the above clip from the BBC news will have to suffice for now. 

So, what, now?  Should there be a national debate –  and a referendum – on the concept of the woman’s right to choose, now that we have SO much more information about life in the womb than we did back in 1967, when there were actually campaigners claiming that the foetus (Latin word for “offspring”) isn’t human at all.   Of course, gradually that position was dropped in favour of the “pro-choice” – the woman’s right to choose to kill her baby if that is what she decided – argument , with that right set to be extended until the moment of birth or immediately after birth (infanticide) which is already legal in the USA.   The pro-abortion MPs in Parliament are pushing for that here, using the euphemism “decriminalisation” of abortion.  They are among the anti-BREXIT MPs demanding a second referendum “because we know so much more now than when we voted to leave the EU in 2016.” I’ve written to a number of them putting the same argument for a national abortion debate and, needless to say, not one of them has replied. 

Over to you – are we justified in calling for a referendum on abortion, now that we can actually see for ourselves that there is a truly human life in the womb, more active than certain folk outside the womb… (think lazy teenagers!)

    • You don’t know that for sure. I remember seeing a video on this very blog, showing one of the prolife groups working on the street (London) with huge banners and pictures of the unborn baby at different stages. People were being educated, like the young man who said he’d always just accepted the argument about the woman’s right to choose but now he realised these were real human babies and he changed his mind. You forget that people have become immunised against the reality of abortion, and don’t exactly go investigating it so a national debate where the truth was brought out into the open, would be sure to change many minds.

      • Nicky,

        That was probably an Abort67 roadshow. That used to happen all the time, people being really shocked at seeing the images of the unborn child and turning against the pro-choice lobby to become pro-life. That’s why so many people hate the use of images – they don’t want the reality that this is murdering a baby, to be revealed. Shockingly, even some Catholics are against the use of images in pro-life work. You wonder if they are really secretly in favour of abortion (which is my own personal view).

        • Annaline,

          Yes, Abort67 is really the only pro-life group to make a difference. Here is a short interview with one of their number, in which he touches on the reason why people don’t like the use of images.

      • A beautiful reply here Nicky pro life people need to show the poor babies remains RIP …just like Animal cruelty showing that had a massive impact on people and still does but of course the rabid feminists cannot bear to know the truth showing what abortion really is hence the need to destroy pro life people having a say or any input into the whole abortion matter ..so sad

  1. That may be so, but the difference would be that people would vote for abortion knowing clearly in their minds that they are voting to allow the killing of a human life. That is obscured right now because of the “women’s right to choose” mantra. Also, who knows how many babies would be saved by people realising that this is gravely wrong, murder, in fact. So, I am not surprised the MPs didn’t reply to editor’s communications – they’ll never agree to educating the public on the reality of abortion, never.

    • People already know it is wrong. All they have to do is use Google images or watch an abortion on YouTube.

      They don’t watch it and don’t look at the images because they don’t want to be reminded they support murder.

      They like sex and pleasure and feel they have a “right” to sex and they are prepared to murder the baby so they don’t have to raise it for the next 20 years.

      Stop the ignorant argument. In the modern age it just does not wash. The truth is a Google search away.

      • Greg,

        The only ignorance around here is found your palpable bad manners.

        Your rather silly (and ignorant!) “the truth is a Google search away” presupposes that the nation is either not sure or very interested in the truth about life in the womb. Wrong.

        The majority of our ignorant (to use your word) UK population is that the people of this country, for the most part, assume that if something is legal, it must be moral, or, at least not that bad. They’re not of the mindset that would make them want to Google to seek information about life in the womb. Because it’s legal, the majority of the population don’t consider abortion to BE murder. DUH.

        Indeed, expectant mothers – such as the rabid pro-abortionist MP, Stella Creasy who is currently pregnant – will see for themselves in their scans, that this is a human life, moving, waving, etc in the womb. The rabid pro-abortionist types don’t care. If this baby were not wanted by Creasy, he/she would be gone in the blink of an eye. It’s called having a dead conscience.

        Now, your posts are already subject to moderation, so I suggest that you ditch the arrogant rudeness you tend to display all too often, if you wish to continue to blog here because until there is clear evidence that you intend to engage in discussions with – at the very least – elementary good manners (which means not accusing any of us of “ignorance” in the pejorative sense) your posts will continue to be moderated by me and NOT published if you fall below our Catholic standards of courtesy and modesty. That modesty includes speech/writing.

      • Sad thing is Google does not show the truth of abortion or show pro life factual videos how can reading from a computer equate to talking to pro life people some of whom have had abortions ….and learning from them

      • Google / YouTube are being sued for refusing to take prolife adverts! You can Google all you like, but they’re giving minimum information out about abortion and more generally anything on the conservative side of politics. They’re actually being sued right now by Prager U for that very reason! It’s very naïve to think that people who don’t see anything wrong with abortion due to the emphasis on the woman’s right to choose will spend time Googling about it anyway – LOL! If only they would, they’d get something, not much, but something!

    • I agree, totally. You can’t lose out when you are educating. Those who want to be taught, will see the reality and change their minds, which means more lives saved. There’s nothing to be lost and a lot to possibly be gained by calling for a national discussion on the subject – it’s been a long time since 1967, and medical science has made huge strides.

    • Lily,

      Well said. A thoughtful comment, taking account of the reality of the widespread brainwashing of the public about the legitimacy of killing the unborn baby in the womb, and the MPs fear of educating the people on the reality of what is happening. Well said.

  2. I think it’s great to use that same argument that the anti-Brexit MPs and their supporters are using. Yes, we certainly do know more about the unborn child in the womb now that we did in 1967. That goes without saying.

    Why is it Catholic Truth pushing this though and not SPUC? Why have they gone to ground even with talk of decriminalising abortion, meaning it can happen in any and all circumstances and right at the point of birth?

    • Fidelis,

      Why not SPUC pushing for a public debate on abortion now that we have more information about life in the womb – indeed. One reason may be that if those in full time employment at the SPUC office(s) need their salaries to pay their mortgages, well…. a tad compromised, surely, in their expressed desire to see an end to abortion. No abortion law, no SPUC.

      What other possible reason can there be? I wrote to the Director of SPUC (John Smeaton) some years ago, asking him this very question but he has never replied, nor, as far as I am aware, has he addressed this question publicly. Interesting.

  3. What an important topic. I agree, SPUC should be raising this “Brexit” argument because it’s undeniable that we know more about the unborn child in 2019 than we did in 1967.

    I’m posting a 2 minutes video clip showing 2D, 3D and 4D images of the infant in the womb. I can’t believe that if this sort of information was widely distributed, it wouldn’t move people to change their position and maybe lead to revoking the law legalising abortion.

  4. This is a very interesting and vital Blog thank you Patricia

    And YES the question is WHY do pro life people always turn the proverbial cheek to the abortionist minded lunatics that is the problem all the dreadful lies they tell and all the scandal …all the dreadful harrassment to pro lifers bringing loudspeakers ,banging instruments ,covering pro life pictures with cloths, destroying pro life literature,dressing up as Jesus and writing filthy slogan s on cardboard , taking videos and photos of peaceful Prayerful people Praying and using blasphemous slogans and causing problems outside Churches and Abbeys, and there has been reports of some attacks on elderly pro lifers throwing their chairs away and taunting them; they make reports to managers in Town Centres if there is anything pro life taking place ,making sure pro life people do not get fund raising /information days again SO what do we get from pro life people ?….hardly nothing they do not complain or take them to Court.

    I know the media is very pro death BUT ..pro life people need to get more outspoken about this atrocious behaviour – the abortionists take dreadful liberties, spread horrific lies once pro lifers do start …effectively fighting back with positive action these hideous minions of death will retreat with 40 D F L staring soon. Never has this been more important their next big push is for these onboxious zones around every abortion mill.

    WE MUST STOP BEING SO QUIET – IT’S VITAL

  5. The Rachel Riley interview was first class. She’s really broken ranks with “the Sisterhood” and yet there’s been no real commentary about what she said. The media do all in their power to keep the public from thinking through the abortion issues, no question about it.

    • Josephine,

      I noticed that, too, that the usual commentators didn’t mention Rachel Riley’s baby’s reaction to her stress. Still, it probably made them think.

    • RCA Victor,

      I agree with that woman that restoring true femininity is essential to restoring Christian civilisation. She could not have put it better.

  6. Just a few years ago, Adam in Southampton, England was a pro-abortion atheist.

    He assisted with dozens of abortions when he worked in a hospital and even played a role in the abortion of his own child.

    But the month after Adam was baptized as a Christian, he had a terrifying nightmare about his role in that abortion.

    Adam is now leading the first 40 Days for Life campaign outside Southampton Hospital, where hundreds of children are lost to abortion each year.

    That means he’s the second person ever (after 40 Days for Life Outreach Director Sue Thayer) to lead a 40 Days for Life campaign after working in an abortion unit!

    Southampton is about three hours south of the Nottingham abortion facility that became the 100th to close following a 40 Days for Life campaign.

    Adam hopes to see Southampton’s abortion ward added to the list of out-of-business abortion facilities shortly!

    40 Days for Life kickoff events continue all week in cities around the

  7. Dear All
    The abortionists want to batter us down like tent pegs into the ground not able to speak ..show the truth …utter anything pro life even peacful prayerful people are their targets it really is time for pro lifers to SPEAK UP about this abominable hatred and lies and sheer antagonism
    PLEASE can you contact the advertisers clear ads please see post above and send them an e -mail /letter congratulating them on these marvellous adverts from brave CBR UK …..IF yo u can afford a donation to CBR UK then please do brave people who put themselves at the front of the battle between life and death thank you

  8. Please see above ….this happened in Walthamstow and it just goes to show how pro life people are being denied the right to show /speak about pre born children it is horrific …………..
    What next all the while Creasy reigns supreme giveing out orders of what should happen to pro lifers IF PRO LIFE PEOPLE do not start really speaking up then there is no hope for them or the precious preborn ……….shocking
