Britain Endorses State-Sanctioned Murder of Catholic Woman’s Child

 

In 1939, Britain initiated war against a eugenics-obsessed state in Europe with the purpose of stopping its disgusting rise and destroying it as a world and European power. Britain lost its Empire as a result, but it could rightly take pride in having stood alone against Nazi Germany for the Second World War (albeit with its colonies and dominion states.) Oh, how times have changed.

Last Friday a “Judge”/ Executioner by the name of Justice Lieven ordered the death of an unborn child conceived to a disabled woman under NHS “Care” due to being unable to provide for her means. The woman did not ask for this nor does she know what the judge decided. Her mother was aghast; a former nursewife and Catholic, she wanted to raise the child with help from her Catholic but disabled daughter.

The judge after listening to the NHS “doctors” said no. They said the child should be aborted. Not even considered for foster care or adoption. Aborted. The judge said it would not be too bad for the mother of the child. She would only see her baby as a doll so it would not be too much of a tragedy. The “judge” … what a girl, eh?

Also, it turns out Ms. Justice Lieven in the previous decade was a solicitor for a pro-choice advocacy group on abortion. She had tried to get it legalised in Northern Ireland. This failed, and Northern Ireland remains abortion-free. For now.

“Modern” Britain makes one proud. As does the near silence of the Catholic and Anglican clergymen to this crisis. God help those poor women.

 

 

 

UPDATE: Three judges in the court of appeal have overturned the wicked judge’s decision. Thanks be to God. God bless.

    I wonder if the woman being Nigerian enters into the equation. England is really not a Christian nation anymore.

    For a judge from a state which has explicitly (and sanctimoniously) eschewed the death penalty for convicted criminals, Justice Lieven’s nonchalance in terminating the life of an unborn child because that life is likely to be “hard” is stunning.

    Lots of people lead hard lives. Is Lieven going to start terminating them too?

    The lady is a moral cretin. Gee, is being a moral cretin a hardship?

    Paddy,

    Let’s start calling this what it is. This is a eugenic abortion. All of this time our society has been hiding behind the idea of “the rights of a woman“. Now the cloak is off and we see the hideous ugly face of eugenics. The woman’s rights, in fact, are specifically overridden and she is required to have the abortion.

    This revelation has been a long time coming. Even abortion advocates should be shocked by this but unfortunately, their moral nervous system has been anesthetized and they don’t see the immense threat. We must arouse them from their moral stupor.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Some nice things about England, but this ain’t one of ’em.

    Booo, hiss, and much wagging of the head. (serious lamentations for this Hippocratic betrayal of an oath that is, perhaps, the only thing that has enabled civilization(over 4000 years) to trust “medical professionals” against our common and repeated experience of the evils mankind does to those it can manipulate and exploit.

    The book I’m using for research is making the point that historically, that “trust” is either earned or not, and the lack of successful societies through recorded history due to this lack of trust in the medical professionals should give serious pause to those currently undermining a trust the public has been loosing over the last decades. (Wesley J. Smith writes solid info on the value of every single human life)

     In a 2009 New York Times interview, Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she had believed the Roe v. Wade decision was primarily motivated by eugenics; though (she said) she later changed her mind:

    “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”

    No one is fond of taking responsibility for his actions, but consider how much you’d have to hate free will to come up with a political platform that advocates killing unborn babies but not convicted murderers. A callous pragmatist might favor abortion and capital punishment. A devout Christian would sanction neither. But it takes years of therapy to arrive at the liberal view.”

    I think it is worse than that. A eugenic abortion would be done based on the “fitness” of the baby as a person. Instead, the baby is not treated as a person at all. This decision was only about sparing the mother some kind of supposed confusion and the baby is given no more consideration than a mole to be removed. The UK has lost something much worse than “empire” status.

    Yup. Here it is. I’ve never known LifeSite News to get something wrong. unlike CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN …

    Yesterday Scotland’s Bishop John Keenan of the Diocese of Paisley took a relatively sterner approach by exhorting those who listened to his video message to sign a CitizenGo petition against the forced abortion. 

    “It’s a horrific decision which is ironically uniting pro-lifers and pro-choicers,” he said. “… Sign immediately your strong objection to this decision.” 

    Okay, so it isn’t exactly the Calling of the Clans, so we aren’t gonna get to sack York any time soon, but still — well done, Your Excellency.
