Abortion Is Murder—Plain And Simple!

By Craig from Scotland

Abortion is murder, plain and simple,
“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!" —Isaiah 49:15
"Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him." —Psalm 127:3
"Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?" —Job 31:15
"Thou shalt not kill." —Exodus 20:13 (one of the 10 commandments)

Abortion is legal in the UK if a medically trained person performs the abortion, however, it's illegal if a person carries out a self-abortion, that is, they abort their own baby.  Self Abortion is rising and takes the form of ordering 'abortion pills' online.  For some reason, as we'll see in the cases that follow, judges describe self-abortion as 'robbing a baby of the life (she) was about to have'.  It is exactly the same thing - robbing of life, whether you do it yourself or someone does it for you.

Self Abortion is illegal

In most of the UK - England, Scotland and Wales, it's illegal to have an abortion unless under the medical supervision of doctor(s)


'Every woman, being with child, who, with intent to procure her own miscarriage, shall unlawfully administer to herself any poison or other noxious thing, or shall unlawfully use any instrument or other means whatsoever with the like intent, and whosoever, with intent to procure the miscarriage of any woman, whether she be or be not with child, shall unlawfully administer to her or cause to be taken by her any poison or other noxious thing, or shall unlawfully use any instrument or other means whatsoever with the like intent, shall be guilty of felony, and being convicted thereof shall be liable . . . F1 to be kept in penal servitude for life . . .'

Self Abortion is increasing

This fairly recent article http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-38960437 talks about the growing use of ordering abortion pills online, for the intention of administering a self-abortion.  There is an 'abortion pill' which people have been purchasing online, and the numbers of these pills being intercepted has grown, and is growing.

'Government figures show 375 doses, sent to addresses in England, Wales, and Scotland, were seized in 2016, compared with just five in 2013.

Taking the pills while pregnant without medical approval is illegal in the UK.'

Number of self-abortion pills being seized in the UK:


And under the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 - the punishment for taking the pill, in theory, can be as high as a life sentence.

Case Studies of women who have been prosecuted

There are two women who have been prosecuted for self-terminating their pregnancies, ie self abortion, let's have a quick look at the two cases.

Natalie Towers


'A woman who used poison to terminate her pregnancy has been jailed for two and a half years.
Natalie Towers, 24, of Adams Street, Shildon, County Durham, had earlier admitted a charge of administering poison with intent to procure a miscarriage while 32-34 weeks pregnant.'

In this situation, the poor lady in question procured the substance online, with the intent of self-administering an abortion, and it came to light with the authorities as the lady started to feel unwell after taking the poison, and contacted the emergency services for an ambulance.  Sadly the baby was lost.  Here is how the judge described the verdict,

'Judge Mr. Justice Jay gave her credit for pleading guilty but said she must serve a custodial sentence.
"This offence does involve extinguishing a life about to begin," he said.'
It's a horrible situation - the baby has been killed, the mother is full of remorse, regret - in her own words - 'hating herself'

This is murder.

Sarah Catt


'A woman who aborted her own baby in the final phase of her pregnancy has been jailed for eight years.

Sarah Louise Catt, 35, of Sherburn-in-Elmet, North Yorkshire, took a drug when she was full term, 39 weeks pregnant, to cause an early delivery.

In this situation, the lady in question purchased the poison online, and expressed NO remorse, indeed, according to the judge, made a 'deliberate and calculated decision' to end her pregnancy.  The criminal investigation revealed that the lady first of all claimed she had a legitimate abortion, then admitted to taking the drug while her husband was away (her husband was not aware of the pregnancy), delivering the baby boy by herself at home and burying the body - however, she has never revealed the location of the body.

This is murder.

On sentencing, the judge, Mr Justice Cooke stated that,
'Catt had robbed the baby of the life it was about to have and said the seriousness of the crime lay between manslaughter and murder.'
This is true of all abortions - every baby is being robbed of a life 'it' - he or she is about to have!

The lady in question was described by the investigating officer, Chief Insp. Kerring Smith as, 
'..more than capable of being extremely deceitful in her actions

Catt has proved to be cold and calculating and has shown no remorse or given an explanation for what she did.'
In both cases - murder was committed, deceit taken place (not letting others know eg the father, not revealing the truth (lies) - one sin REALLY does lead to another.  Even so on the second case, the lady in question did not even express any remorse!  How can one, even one such as me like others, who are full of sin, saved by God's grace, yet still, fathom such wickedness?  I cannot.

Perplexing Part

Most of these situations are perplexing enough - but what IS perplexing is, how is it NOT murder when a medical doctor administers the drug?  But it IS murder when someone who is NOT a medical doctor administers the drug?

Here we have both cases - in each case the Judge describes the child AS a CHILD! - EXTINGUISHING A LIFE according to Judge Mr. Justice Jay, and ROBBING THE BABY OF THE LIFE IT WAS ABOUT TO HAVE according to Judge Mr. Justice Cooke, but then, when it's done by a medical doctor, it's no longer a BABY, a LIFE, but a 'PROCEDURE', a 'COLLECTION OF CELLS'???!!!!!!

People, whether a doctor administers the poison or not, that doesn't change what is growing inside a womb, it IS a baby, and it is murder.

Other women who have purchased the abortion pill

"I was hoping to have a termination in the comfort of my own home without judgmental eyes and without worrying about my husband knowing. I fear what would happen if he did," one woman said.

So here we have a situation where the lady KNOWS that it is wrong - but DOESN'T care - the priorities listed are - what will other people think of me?  What will my husband say or do?  It is all ME ME ME which is NOT an advertisement to support the abortion procedure but sadly, an example of self-centeredness.  There is nothing about the life of the baby, would this lady like to have been aborted?  I think not.  Nothing about how her husband would feel - how can one expect to have a healthy relationship with their life long partner without honesty? It is a sad situation indeed.

Another, a foreign student living in the UK, said she felt "desperate".

'I cannot afford this country's prices of procedure, and the place in line for supported abortions is just too long and not guaranteed.

I feel absolutely horrible and desperate.'

This is a sad situation, however, pregnancies do not just happen.  People make mistakes - or decisions they would rather not make, of course, but as a person, as an ADULT, we have to live by those mistakes.  A person who sleeps in for work after a late night out might risk losing that job, a person who drives whilst drunk risks killing someone, losing their licence.  These are consequences of ones actions.  The reality however, is that in the UK, mothers do receive financial support from the government in the form of various benefits.  The lady in question might not have had the life she would like - ie being able to suit oneself, but it is a justification which if to be honest, is selfishness.  People WILL get by with what they have.  If you bring up a baby well that child WILL love you, and the child will be GLAD of life.  It's not for us to chose.


Pro-Abortionists, Politicians Response

Ann Furedi, Bpas (Leading provider of abortion clinics in the UK):

'They are not criminals deserving of life imprisonment...' Yes, they are!

She said on 13 March: 

Labour MP Ms Johnson is proposing a Ten Minute Rule Bill that would repeal the relevant sections of the Offences Against the Person Act and decriminalise abortion.

Few people REALLY cares about the minorities, those without a voice, there is no-one without a voice as much as the unborn child, yet, people claim to care about minorities, those without a voice, but the root of abortion is selfishness (and most 'help' that people offer in general).  It's a sad situation.

A point put forward is that abortion protects against 'rapists, incest etc' but the reality is that such situations only account for 0.01% of abortions, the truth of the matter is that over 99% of abortions - of 'unwanted pregnancies' are the result of peoples bad decisions and then selfishness to not interrupt their life, to give up their 'Friday nights at the pub', to deny that it's murder and instead call the baby 'cells, tubes etc.' to try to justify or hide the reality, but, God knows what's in the heart

 "...for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart" 1 Samuel 16:7



Abortion IS murder - we know that from the Bible, common sense, even the legal system knows it.

For judges to state that self abortion is 'extinguishing a life about to begin' and that it robs  'the baby of the life it was about to have'  and for it NOT be disagreed with at the sentencing, shows that everyone knows abortion is wrong.

There's no difference in killing a baby whether you have a medical degree or not, it's still the exact same thing, the baby is poisoned and killed.

This is why there is so much propaganda to support abortion, and so much hatred towards those who disagree with it - it's to try to dull the senses to the reality of murder, and to shout down common sense so that the individual who is doing the shouting tries not to hear, and so that others should not speak.

They even get to the stage where they think they are doing God's work by murdering and opposing those who want to protect the little lifes,

"..yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service" John 16:2

"Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." Romans 1:25
