ABORTION DEBATE IN COUNCIL OF EUROPE

Christian Voice E-Alert - 7th October

The Council of Europe is debating today the right of medical staff not to participate in abortions on grounds of conscience.

UK delegate Christine McCafferty (was Calder Valley, Lab) is moving a motion on 'Women's access to lawful medical care: the problem of unregulated use of conscientious objection'.

She is asking member states to 'develop comprehensive and clear regulations that define and regulate conscientious objection with regard to health and medical services, including reproductive health services...' She also wants a complaint mechanism.

You might say the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is just a pompous talking shop with no powers, and you might be right. But it is also a serious part of the 'One-World' movement. It predates the European Union in its present incarnation and as well as supporting the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg it aims 'to create a common democratic and legal area throughout the whole of the continent'. Wow!

The practical effects are that a motion successfully moved would alter the parameters of debate across Europe.

Look how deceitful this fanatical pro-abortionist is. McCafferty talks about 'lawful medical care' instead of abortion. She decides conscience is 'a problem.' She hides the ugly truth behind euphonic words.

PRAY: That McCafferty will have minimal support in the CoE. The resolution that states should provide legal abortion was passed on 16th April 2008 by 102 to 69. To remove the right of conscience would be an even bigger step. A vote is expected at 7pm tonight. Even if you receive this after 7pm, still pray into this subject; the Lord knows you will be praying and as He is outside time I believe He is able to act prior to receiving your prayer!

But how come the CoE UK delegation has 8 Labour, 2 LibDems and only 6 Conservatives and is chaired by John Prescott five months after the General Election in May this year? How come Christine McCafferty is still a member of CoE despite being rejected by the voters of Calder Valley?

WRITE: To your MP. Ask that question. Ask when the UK delegation will be replaced by one representative of the UK Parliament.
