The culture of death has a chokehold on Western governments, and it’s getting worse. Not only are elected officials refusing to protect their youngest citizens from murder by abortion, instances of forced abortion are becoming increasingly common.
According to the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), a high court in the United Kingdom has issued a ruling calling for the forced surgical abortion of a woman with cognitive impairment.
The Court of Protection in London heard how an unidentified woman in her twenties, has the “mental capacity of a toddler” and is believed to be 12 weeks pregnant. The judge has ordered a surgical abortion to be performed on the woman later this week, after hospital bosses urged the court to authorize the termination.
Mr Justice Williams has ruled that medics can physically restrain the vulnerable woman, if necessary, in order to administer a general anesthetic and perform the abortion.
Police are investigating whether the woman’s pregnancy was caused by an act of sexual assault.
“This is an outrage which should shock every right-thinking person,” said SPUC’s Deputy Chief Executive John Deighan. “It is a level of cruelty and barbarity reminiscent of how people with mental health issues were treated in the 1930s of Nazi Germany. To force abortion on any person is abhorrent and to do so in the name of medicine calls into question the structures of law and justice in our society.”
This is, in fact, the second case of a judge calling for the forced abortion of a mentally disabled woman this year, coming just a few months after Justice Nathalie Lieven ordered doctors to carry out a forced late-term abortion on a woman after 22 weeks gestation in spite of the fact that the child’s grandmother was ready, willing, and able to raise the baby herself.
“I think [the pregnant mother] would suffer greater trauma from having a baby removed [from her care],” Lieven said in her initial ruling. “…it would at that stage be a real baby.”
Note the use of the words “at that stage,” from a judge who so clearly buys the anti-science lie that it is not a baby when it is in utero.
“I think [the pregnant mother] would like to have a baby in the same way she would like to have a nice doll,” Lieven also said, sickeningly belittling the disabled woman’s cognitive capacity.
“I am acutely conscious of the fact that for the State to order a woman to have a termination where it appears that she doesn’t want it is an immense intrusion,” Lieven concluded. “I have to operate in [her] best interests, not on society’s views of termination.”
Thankfully, as we previously reported, Justice Lieven’s decision was met with massive backlash and ultimately overturned in late June.
“When the case of forced abortion was overturned in June, SPUC raised serious questions regarding how such an inhumane ruling was ever made, and sought reassurance that it will never happen again,” said SPUC Campaign Research Officer Margaret Akers.
“Astonishingly, less than 5 months later another similar ruling has been made. What we are witnessing is the exploitation and abuse of vulnerable women with learning difficulties,” Akers continued. “Performing an abortion on any woman without consent is abuse of the worst kind imaginable. A woman understood to have the mental capacity of a toddler cannot consent to sex. we must demand answers as to how this vulnerable woman was ever placed in this situation and ensure that those responsible are brought to justice.”
Folks, this wickedness must be met head-on! Not only must we pray for the Lord to work in these atrocities, we must stand up for the unborn who will be murdered and for mothers whose bodies will be so violently invaded at the mere tap of a gavel.
Forced abortion is an incredible evil, and it must be fought with incredible bravery. We must start by letting the world see the natural conclusion of systematic legalized abortion coupled with the horrors of state control over medical choices.
