The UK Public Health Minister, Dawn Primarolo, has today rejected calls for reform of the disastrous 1967 abortion law on its 40th anniversary. She claims that there is ‘no medical evidence that a reduction in term limits is possible’!

The present revised 1967 UK Abortion Act allows abortions to be carried out up to 24 weeks after conception. As for the British Medical Association (BMA), it supports the current law and even advocates easing restrictions on abortion in the first 13 weeks of pregnancy, so that women would no longer need the signature of two doctors. Anti-abortion campaigners state that medical progress means that babies have a better chance of survival at 24 weeks than in the past and say that the upper limit should now be reduced. In 2006, there were nearly 200,000 abortions in England and Wales, a 4 percent rise on last year. Originally, the Act was passed with the support of abortionist propaganda that once abortion was legalized, there would be hardly any demand for it. The truth has proved to be exactly the opposite, with ever more abortions, totalling several million victims over the last forty years.

We believe that the spiritual dimension of the abortion ‘business’ is its ritual blood sacrifice to the demon of child murder, Moloch, of whom we know from the Old Testament (Leviticus 18, 21 and 20, 2-5; 1 Kings 11, 5-33; 2 Kings 23, 13; Zephaniah 1, 5; Deuteronomy 32, 17; Psalm 105/106, 37; Baruch 4, 7; 1 Corinthians 10, 20). This demon of murder appears in many forms and cultures throughout history (Phoenician, Carthaginian, Canaanite, Celt, Indian, Aztec and others), but it is always the same bloodthirsty beast that demands the killing of children as his form of worship. Thus, the ‘modern’ abortion industry offers ritual blood sacrifice to Moloch.

It is in every way a demonic religion. It has its sacred dogma (‘choice’), its ruling hierarchy (planned parenthood), its theologians (feminist ideologues), its sacrificing priesthood (abortionists), its temples (abortion clinics), altars (surgical tables), ritual victims (firstly babies and secondly women), acolytes and sacristans (clinic workers and death-escorts), congregations (all supporters of abortion) and its own unifying principle of sacramental ‘grace’ (money + ‘convenience’). In short, the abortion industry is a system which offers a perverse form of worship to the devil.

The sacrificial victim in this demonic religion is not an animal, as was offered by the Old Testament understanding of God by Israel. In abortion, the victim is an innocent human being, made ‘in the image and likeness of God’, and who can never defend itself. This combination of innocence, parental participation and ritualized obliteration of God in human form is the devil's way of blaspheming the Father, with the misguided participation of God's own children. The systematic destruction of the body, which the Apostle Paul calls ‘the temple of the Holy Spirit’, is a blasphemy before God. Abortion's spiritual power is its violation of all the commandments.
