UK Votes Against Banning Sex Selective Abortions

Matthew 19:18 ESV “And Jesus said, “You shall not murder…”

Editor’s Note: Throughout the scriptures, God has made it clear that shedding innocent blood is murder, and no murderer will enter heaven. In addition to the death of the unborn baby, abortion also substantially harms the women and many times, families, husbands, boyfriends and a whole sphere of relationships connected to and surrounding each abortion. Often, lifelong guilt and other social, relational, spiritual and even physical problems follow the murder of innocent babes in the womb. Pastor Jim Bakker believes that this issue, abortion, may be the single most significant issue that brings God’s judgment on this nation more than any other.

The British Parliament has voted against a bill that would prohibit a woman from getting an abortion based on the sex of the child.

The 292 to 201 vote against the amendment has caused pro-life groups across Britain to react in horror.  The groups say that the Parliament has failed to protect the lives of millions of unborn girls who will be killed solely because of their gender.

“Parliament yesterday failed in its duty to ensure women are not discriminated against at all stages of their lives. Instead, it caved in to the intense lobbying efforts of the abortion industry and its advocates, against the outlawing of sex selection abortion,” UK pro-life group LIFE said in a statement.

“The abortion of girls because of their sex has no place in modern societies which embrace equality and non-discrimination against women.”

Politicians who voted against the measure tried to claim that existing law prohibits sex selective abortions.  Prime Minister David Cameron said the law could have potentially blocked women from obtaining abortions in the event a child has severe abnormalities.
