‘Open thy mouth for the dumb (those who have no voice) in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.’ (Proverbs 31:8)
A major pro-life campaign to abolish the Abortion (1967) Act in Britain has been formally launched in Scotland. The Abort Abortion Campaign is aimed at lawmakers in the corridors of power at Holyrood, Westminster, Stormont and the Senedd.
In presenting all 929 British politicians – 129 in Edinburgh, 650 in London, 90 in Belfast and 60 in Cardiff – formally and publicly for the first time, with unambiguous, and alarming, factual evidence that abortion is conclusively the killing of an unborn baby in the mother’s womb, legislators are urged to urgently begin the process of repealing the Abortion (1967) Act with immediate effect.
Part of this evidence being presented to politicians is a graphic 28-minute film called The Silent Scream, narrated by Dr Bernard N Nathanson – the doctor who early in his career ran the world’s largest abortion clinic in New York, where he oversaw thousands of abortions. In eventually coming to realise that abortion was unequivocally the murder of a living human being, his story is grisly and deeply disturbing: ‘I am personally responsible for over 75,000 abortions. This was the greatest mistake of my life, and legal abortion was the greatest mistake this nation ever conceived! Tragically I am one of those who helped usher in this barbaric age…’
The film graphically details the killing of a twelve-week-old fetus in a suction abortion. The Dr used the footage to describe the facts of fetal development and to make the case for the humanity and dignity of the child in the womb. At one point, viewers see the child drawback from the surgical instrument and open his mouth: ‘This’, says the Dr, ‘is the silent scream of a child threatened imminently with extinction.’
Politicians in Britain, currently holding office, have never been formally presented with this DVD film, for their serious consideration – so the time has now come to put this right. We proudly boast in Britain of a society that is civilised and compassionate, and which cares for vulnerable people – yet we have an inhumane law which allows a baby to be torn apart, dismembered, disarticulated, crushed and destroyed in an ‘approved clinic’ by a heartless abortionist, who is handsomely paid for the service. What great moral depravity and hypocrisy! Not only is this a heinous crime, but it is also a travesty of justice. The barbaric practice of killing babies in Britain has to stop – abortion must be aborted.
Please pray for this vitally-important Abort Abortion Campaign, that our political leaders will finally face up to their responsibility of protecting and preserving the life of every unborn baby, in the womb, and their mother.
As we earnestly plead to God for His intervention, our greatest weapon in the fight to end abortion is prayer.
