Diana Johnson’s morally repugnant abortion bill

The vote today is a demonstration of the power this multi-million pound industry, famous for its   “cattle market”  culture, has at Westminster

Life is disappointed at today’s Commons vote to take forward Diana Johnson’s abortion bill which seeks to impose abortion on Northern Ireland and introduce abortion on demand in England and Wales.

The House of Commons today had a majority vote in favour of Ms Johnson’s bill being considered on 23 November.

Life’s Director of Advocacy Anne Scanlan said: “Just the consideration of this bill seeking to impose abortion on Northern Ireland represents a slap in the face of the people of Northern Ireland. But what we have seen in the vote today is a demonstration of the power this multi-million pound industry, famous for its   “cattle market”  culture, has at Westminster.

For years the conditions of the Abortion Act (1967) have been a bugbear for abortion clinics and they want those business impediments removed. Ms Johnson’s bill prepared with the help of the largest abortion providers in England and Wales, BPAS and Marie Stopes and the abortion rights campaigner Amnesty, wants abortion to be available for any reason which will include gender and disability. Despite public opinion which is horrified at legal late term abortions, it recommends although doctors have a limit of six months, women should be able to abort their baby after six months gestation if they do it themselves.

This bill would enable abusers and groomers to hide their crimes by demanding that victims get an abortion or self-abort with no questions asked. In all the major grooming cases abortion has been used as a tool to hide the crimes of abusers.

The bill also devalues life when an unborn baby can be terminated at any time and for any reason without question or legal consequences. No society which truly values equality should possess such laws which allow for babies to be terminated because they are girls or because they are disabled.

Ms Johnson’s bill is one of the most morally repugnant pieces of legislation to ever come to the House of Commons. It is not in the interest of women, not in the interest of equality and not in the interest of the devolved authority of the people of Northern Ireland.  It should have been rejected and binned.”

  1. Anne Corbett says:

    The life of the unborn is cheap, and just an inconvenience. This is so wrong on most levels.

  2. Eileen Auckram says:

    It is shocking that this MP can force NI to bring in abortion when it is obvious that it doesn't want to follow SI and the UK.

  3. Brian Crowe says:

    All those MPs who supported this Bill should feel shame for doing so. The Bill gives a free hand to the murder of the unborn. How could anybody with a shred of humanity and decency support such a proposal. Did our servicemen give their lives in the two world wars for nothing? They died for the future generations of our country, that they might have peace and freedom from tyranny and evil. What can be more evil than this proposed Bill? Why is it always women who seem to be at the forefront of such evil legislation? Why do these women hate the unborn so much? All people of goodwill must speak out against this evil, and pray that God will not allow it.

  4. Fiona Cullen-Skowronski says:

    Voting in favour of this bill means pretending that abortion is not the killing of a little baby.
    Some are pro this genocide of little babies because they want to be trendy, to show they are not savages; others have a financial or power interest; others simply don't know how a baby suffers while being killed.

  5. Rob Galvin says:

    See this US crowdfunded film - which stars Dean Cain of TV's 'Lois & Superman' fame - (or search the web) to see how pro-abortion bias leads its advocates (including the statutory health authorities and news media) to deliberately look the other way [e.g. Reports state that state officials had failed to visit or inspect Gosnell's practices since 1993 despite complaints/no media were initially present at the trial] : "Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer, is a 2018 American drama film about Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor who killed at least seven infants born alive during abortion procedures. In May 2013, Gosnell was convicted of first degree murder in the deaths of three of the infants and involuntary manslaughter in the death of Karnamaya Mongar. Gosnell was also convicted of 21 felony counts of illegal late-term abortion, and 211 counts of violating the 24-hour informed consent law. After his conviction, Gosnell waived his right to appeal in exchange for an agreement not to seek the death penalty. He was sentenced instead to life in prison without the possibility of parole." His wife, Pearl, also received a prison conviction for related offences - e.g. abortion at 24-weeks or more. Mr & Mrs Gosnell hired their 15-yr old daughter to assist at the abortion clinic which led to them also being charged with corrupting the morals of a minor. [Wikipedia].

    Very, very sickening but not surprising during this era of self centred led policies. Children /babies literally robbed of life it's murder. I can't condemn every single abortion as I am aware I don't have all the answers but we musn't allow these bills, government policies to blind us to facts. This is MURDER and allowing the individual (most likely not the mother themself but an abuser of this allowance) to kill the child at any stage is the governments way of washing their hands of the crime.
