Abortion: ‘a conveyor belt which is impossible to stop’
Yet there is a disturbing story in The Guardian which exemplifies the extent to which abortion has become society’s norm. It tells of a woman who was forced by an NHS trust to have an abortion despite her attempts to withdraw her consent, and despite her repeated attempts to have her questions answered. The Princess Alexandra hospital in Harlow, Essex, has agreed to pay £27,500 to her by way of compensation, for aborting her unborn baby against her will.
It beggars belief that a woman about to undergo what must be a profoundly traumatic experience was not handled in a sympathetic and understanding manner. She enquired quite specifically as to whether the procedure ‘would be traumatic for the foetus’, but answer came there none. Of course there wasn’t. One only has to view photographs of terminations to discern that ‘trauma’ isn’t the half of it. She was carted off to theatre ‘upset and tearful’, and there her child’s life was terminated, against her will, against her conscience, and against the purposes of God. It was, she said, as if she was ‘on a conveyor belt which was impossible to stop’.
This ought to have been classed as murder. Despite the acceptance of the out-of-court settlement, £27,500 ‘compensation’ is wholly inadequate. Is that really the value of a baby? A child has been killed by over-zealous medical practitioners, and there is to be no police investigation, no arrests, and no trial. Instead, the Princess Alexandra hospital has apologised for ‘shortcomings in the care’.
So that’s alright then.
