With 40 Days for Life just around the corner, it was interesting to come across a post by an ex-priest called ‘I Can’t Believe I Once Prayed Outside An Abortion Clinic’. Whilst the author claims to be morally undecided on the position of abortion, the claims made about life beginning at conception being based on religious belief and not scientific evidence and regret over praying outside a clinic and forcing his beliefs on people, suggest his undecided position is fallacious- just like the arguments he makes in this abhorrent piece. Let me say this now:
Wow! It has been THE week for marching and our social media accounts have gone crazy! Kicking off last Saturday we had the pro-abortion Women’s Marches across the world, they were heralded as the coming of age of feminism with such a show of unity, even though the publicly excluded pro-life feminists from marching.
'LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO A BABY WHOSE LIFE YOUR JOY HELPED SAVE'
During Lent I was standing outside the abortion centre towards the end of our 40 Days for Life Campaign. A regular volunteer parked his car and came to join me. 'How many babies have been saved so far?' he asked. '9 that we know of' I replied, and was just about to add 'It's been a fantastic campaign' when he cut in with a disappointed voice 'Well I suppose that's better than nothing'.
What does it mean to see? We are all limited to the quality of our eye sight, the surroundings and the amount of light available. Then there is another level of 'seeing', this has to do with how we interpret what we see.
