Fast-track abortions for Scotland

Briefing. The Catholic spokesman is spot on: pro-abortionists want abortion to be a routine procedure, like having an innoculation. Recently Scotland's abortion rate was revealed to be higher than ever.

From SPUC: A Scottish governmental agency has published a plan under which nearlythree quarters of women requesting an abortion will get one before nineweeks' gestation. Quality Improvement Scotland says there are fewercomplications with early abortions. Its report says post-abortioncounselling should be provided to women requesting it and that womenhaving an abortion should be offered birth control. The Catholic churchsaid: "There is a very real danger that this fast-tracking may lead toabortion being seen as a routine medical procedure. With our alreadysky-high abortion rates, this is a very dangerous and very unhelpfulmessage to send out." [Scotsman, 1 June]

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
