At present the entire United Kingdom is in a state of lockdown due to the outbreak of COVID-19. This virus has moved swiftly across the world leaving many dead in its trail.
In its wake we are brought to observe the powerlessness of world leaders to stop this virus in its tracks. It crosses borders with impunity and reaches into every social sphere of society, no person is exempt from its touch.
Many nations have employed the most stringent of measures to try and protect their citizens from this plague. Money has been made available to provide services and help businesses. Authorities have implemented laws restricting the movement of people in an effort to slow the progress of this pestilence.
Millions of pounds have been made available in an effort to safeguard the population, laws have been enacted within days, adverts have been produced and broadcasts made to awaken people to the terrible reality of this virus. We support and commend the current actions of the authorities on this front.
However, there is a stark contrast in that nothing is being done to stop the deliberate deaths of unborn children!
Amid the present united effort to preserve lives we have the introduction of legislation providing unrestricted abortion up to 12 weeks in Northern Ireland!
In the knowledge that the NIO consultation received over 21,000 responses, 79% of which indicated there should be no change to the current law, we ask of Westminster – is this democracy?
It is the duty of Government to preserve life, even those who have shown reckless regard for their own safety and that of others, but what about the defenseless child in the womb? Do they not matter?
According to the BBC 25/3/2020 the Global death toll due to COVID-19 has passed 20,000. Government statistics state “There were 200,608 abortions for women resident in England and Wales in 2018”.
In the midst of this effort to save lives we call on politicians to unite against the horror of abortion and extend the effort to save lives. There is a sad slaughter that has already been taking place for years in the United Kingdom?
God’s law states very clearly in Exodus 20:13, “Thou shalt not kill.”
We urge our UK Government to take heed.
We mourn the loss of life with the spread of Covid-19 and pray that lives will be spared. The Bible teaches us to value all human life. We also pray that men and women would realize their need of a Saviour and in faith and repentance cry unto God.
We implore our Prime Minister and our Government to consider their rebellion against God in laws that have been passed and turn from this wickedness.
The Bible teaches in Proverbs 14:34, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”
