Labour MEP for London, Mrs
Mary Honeyball, is at it again. She continues to
spit on the 'democratic process' which her party loves
superficially (while doing the opposite), by condemning
her own government's refusal to change the abortion
law in Northern Ireland after Secretary of State Shaun
Woodward insisted the Government will not move to extend
The majority of people in the province and all four
main political parties and all main religious denominations
are against abortion in their country, but a handful
of Westminster MPs, none representing Ulster, think
their views should take precedence.
Of course, they reduce the killing of innocent unborn
human beings into a fight for presumed 'equal rights'
on both sides of the Irish Sea. 200,000 abortions a
year are carried out in Britain, so they think it is
only right that people in the whole of the UK should
have access to the carnage.
Mrs Honeyball spouts newspeak again when she says,
"It is terrible that women in Northern Ireland
do not have the same access to reproductive healthcare,
and therefore the same freedom over their bodies, as
women in the rest of the UK."
As usual with this lady, there is no mention of the
fathers, or their rights, or the unborn children's right
to the most basic thing of all: life itself. Mrs Honeyball
is interested in women's rights, not human rights, equity,
fairness or justice.
There are only a
few MPs who are truly possessed enough to fight
for more death in N. Ireland, as if there has not been
more than enough already as we all know. The Belfast
"London MP Diane Abbott, however, has pledged
to continue to fight for reform by tabling a private
member’s bill after the Government killed off her amendment
to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill. This
pledge has already angered political parties and pro-life
activists here who have branded it “laughable” and “desperate
"Last month, Bernie Smyth from Precious Life said:
“Diane Abbott is still arrogantly ignoring the clear
pro-life message from our politicians, church leaders,
and our people. “My message to Diane Abbot is butt out
of Northern Ireland and stop interfering in our protection
of our unborn children,” she added."
If these people think that increased access to abortion
is helpful to humanity, they just need to look across
the North Channel, where the The British Pregnancy Advisory
Service (BPAS) is setting up Scotland's first private
in "late-term" abortions because the NHS cannot
cope with the hundreds of requests for what has become
a particularly gruesome form of contraception.
Here is a picture
of a baby aborted at 22 weeks. A woman's choice? Equality?
Quality of life versus value of life? Or murder, plain
With all this abortion around and 80,000 children in
care, you would think that all the people waiting to
adopt would be given a fair chance, but most come up
against a brick wall of bizarre bureaucracy that shames
our country further.
Humanism can NEVER provide a framework for ethics because
people left to their own devices and imaginations and
who have their own 'comfort zones' set their own agenda.
To demonstrate how confused humanists are, here are
the views on abortion from the British
"Humanists value life and value happiness and
personal choice, and many actively campaigned for legalised
abortion in the 1960s."
"Because humanists take happiness and suffering
into consideration, they are usually more concerned
with the quality of life than the right to life, if
the two come into conflict."
They say they do not believe in God, yet they will
play god with other people's lives.
"However, abortion is not the best way of avoiding
unwanted children, and improved sex education, easily
available contraception, and better education and opportunities
for young women, can all help to reduce the number of
The evidence shows that the opposite is true: more
sex education, starting earlier, leads to more sex and
more abortion and disease, more despair and dysfunctional
They even pose the question, "Can infanticide
ever be right?"
One of their initial comments is, "So in thinking
about abortion a humanist would consider ... the rights
and wishes of everyone involved, trying to find the
kindest course of action or the one that would do the
And of course killing causes the most harm, so why
don't humanists/atheists admit this? Is it because they
are confused by the culture of 'rights,' 'diversity'
It is because humanism cannot provide the answers,
however earnestly adherents search.
Despite the fact that they are in the minority, many
humanists want religion banned - the BHA wants "school
assemblies without religious worship" and laughingly,
"freedom of belief and respect for the non-religious."
One day they might see that evolution
is a religion as a leading anti-creationist admitted.
Unfortunately, there seem to be many more humanists
than Christians on active duty for their religion. I
believe that their confusion over right and wrong and
their evangelical passion for trying to replace Christian
beliefs with their own is one of the greatest threats
we face today, and the humanists will also suffer!
The last word goes to the Psalmist, which is not reproduced
here just to upset 'humanists'. From Psalm 139:
13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered
me in my mother's womb.
14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully
made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth
15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made
in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts
of the earth.
16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect;
and in thy book all my members were written, which in
continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none
