I am continually amazed at the stance displayed by political constitutional nationalism and their flip-flop views on abortion.
Why can the majority of them vote against abortion in 2019, for people with Down’s syndrome, etc. and yet push for its implementation for another reason? Is it just because they don’t wish for the association as something as despicable as eugenic abortion with its clear identification with the Nazi era, but it’s OK for any other situation? Abortion does not exist, abortion is what it is: the denial of the child’s right to life in the womb.
They have to consider themselves that they are playing the same “Catholic” card that Joe Biden is playing and that all is well? It is embarrassing that DUP MP Paul Givan (February 16, see below) conforms more to the definition of the Catholic Catechism on abortion than the so-called “Catholic” politicians!
It is interesting to note that the discoverer of Down, Dr Jerome Le Jeune, was declared “Venerable” by Pope Francis last month and whose cause for canonization is progressing.
I’m sure he would applaud Mr. Givan’s work and pity those who hinder him!
