Abortion and Infanticide in Britain

British priest Fr Ray Blake posts here on the increasing incidence of babies surviving late term abortions in Britain.

This is not for those with a weak stomach.

    I cannot fathom how people can turn a blind eye to this horror. I am beyond amazed when I read how our Supreme Court Justices lament that a woman should have control over her reproductive health to the point of destroying the life within her. When I read accounts such as this my stomach literally turns.

    We have been fighting our “Catholic” hospital here in Anchorage for allowing “early inductions” for fetus with anomalies incompatible with life:translation-babies with birth defects. They induce labor so that the child is too tiny to survive outside the womb. They then refuse to help the child once it is born. It is absolutely tragic, but from what we can tell, very common around the country. Most hospitals allow it.Barbaric. Where have our hearts gone?

    This is an incredible post; it is all the more incredible for having originally come from the free urban newspaper, ‘This is London’. The otherwise pervasive silence surrounding abortion is one of the things that infuriates me about Britain.Father, you will remember that sanctimonious bumper sticker that about one in every four Britons have on their car: ‘A dog is for life; not just for Christmas’. Since moving here, I have found unbelievable the extent to which the British pride themselves on their ‘love of animals’, but fail to say ‘boo’ as their babies suffer and die.As Radical Catholic Mom says above: ‘Barbaric’. The thing is, at least the British still have hearts. They just happen to beat faster at the mention of furry animals instead of human beings. Just like Hitler.

    There was sme good news regarding abortion here (uk) last week : the abortion “service” as it was reported, could be plunged into chaos because increasing numbers of doctors are refusing to carry them out and increasing numbers of medical students are opting out of that part of their training. I see this as fruit from the many prayer vigils that we have here in this country, both out on the streets and in churches, for an end to abortion. You can read more over at The Hermeneutic of Continuity blog run by Fr Tim Finegan – April 16/17 post I think. It is a long fight, but maybe all the prayers and the vigils are at last beginning to be answered in the uk – not by a change in the law, but by the consciences of good men and women who refuse to carry out abortions. Alleluia.
