It’s been an interesting week for the abortion industry. It came to light that a woman is considering taking legal action against major abortion provider Marie Stopes, after an extremely traumatic experience taking ‘DIY’ abortion pills. In a press release by Christian Concern, ‘Sophie’, who had to have surgery after taking the pills, says she felt she wasn’t... Continue Reading →
It seems to be common experience that wherever you lift the lid on some kind of evil, you are sure to find more layers of evil underneath. Recently the interdependence of three particularly insidious industries has been thrown into sharp relief. *Trigger warning – the below discusses some sensitive matter* A couple of weeks back,...

This week has been full of dramatic events (and no, I’m not referring to the pointless mini-dramas of my own life... those tend to be eye-roll worthy, but not blog-worthy).
A poor tourist in a caravan got swept off a cliff in Ireland, Brexit is only six months away (pause to cheer or sob uncontrollably), and Naz Shah, Labour’s shadow minister for equalities, said that pre-natal testing for gender is bad because it allows women to abort baby girls (but it’s apparently still ok to screen for Down’s syndrome).
Unless you’ve been living under a giant rock, you must have heard the slogan ‘my body, my choice’. Four short and simple words; an ad hominem that's become a sort of war cry for females across the English-speaking world.

What information is given to a woman seeking an abortion? If... Continue Reading →
If you read my previous post on abortion, you might wish to delve a little deeper into this issue. If you haven't read it, you can do so here.
This time, I decided to simply let the facts speak for themselves. I hope you'll find the following two bumper posts a helpful resource on the subject.
Last month, every time I turned on the TV or read the news on the internet, there was some new sexual abuse or harassment scandal being plastered on my screen.
Last year it was the Church of England. Then it was Hollywood. Then it was the Olympics gymnast doctor scandal. Then it was #MeToo. Then it was that Aziz Ansari story. Then it was the President’s Club.
I suppose one incident naturally sparked another and another, but the scale of this uncovering has been huge.
Here it is. The topic you probably wish I hadn't touched. Messy. Divisive. Emotionally loaded. When I was younger, abortion was quite an abstract word. Of course, I knew what it was, but it was vague. I knew little then about life in the womb and even less about what an abortion procedure really is. Once I got informed, my heart was changed for good.
