Home abortion consultation

Briefing. When the consultation goes 'live' it should appear here.

From CFNews: A government consultation will measure demand for legal abortion performed away from clinics and hospitals in England. Ms Dawn Primarolo MP, health minister, said: 'Our priority is to reduce the time women have to wait for an abortion at what is already a very difficult time for them.' Pilot studies have already been carried out involving the provision of abortion-inducing drugs by medical facilities that were apparently not licensed to do so. Marie Stopes International, the abortion provider, welcomed the developments. [PA on Channel 4] Anthony Ozimic, SPUC political secretary, said: 'Easier access to abortion trivialises the killing of unborn children and the damage caused to mothers and society by abortion. The recent draft position statement from the Royal College of Psychiatrists confirms that women may be at risk of developing mental problems as a result of having an abortion. This reflects the findings of the 2006 Fergusson study which suggested that abortion in young women may be associated with increased risks of mental health problems.' [SPUC]

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
