Abortion and God

A legislative amendment concerning the counselling provided to women who are thinking of having an abortion is to be voted on soon in Parliament. The MP who has tabled this amendment is Nadine Dorries, a controversial figure for many reasons. I am not going to go into the politics of abortion but I do object to Ms Dorries saying that, 'God has no place in a counselling room with a woman in a crisis pregnancy'.

God is there where there is life and death. I particularly worry about those situations where women are seeking to use abortion as a means of contraception or for gender selection reasons or where the women have been raped and are pregnant as a result. In fact, the list of situations that could arise are so long and diverse that I really pray God will be present each time to be the voice of the foetus that cannot speak for itself.
