Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble:

Marie Stopes Abortion Clinic in Belfast - Trading in the murder of the Unborn!
This clinic claims that it will act within the law regarding abortion in Northern Ireland, which is much stricter than in the rest of the United Kingdom. The 1967 Abortion Act has never been extended to Northern Ireland.
The opening of this clinic surely raises the question: why would someone go along to this establishment and pay £450 for a legal abortion when they can have the same legal abortion on the National Health Service at no financial cost to themselves?
Statistics for the Health Service indicate that there are, on average, only 43 lawful terminations in Northern Ireland per year. Why would a clinic like this come into operation for 43 cases? One obvious conclusion is that this abortion clinic will push the boundaries of what is legal. Their trade is the murder of the unborn!
This clinic's ultimate aim is to have abortion available on demand in Northern Ireland. In response to a question tabled by a House of Lord's peer [Lord Alton of Liverpool] it was recently revealed that 6.4 million unborn children have been aborted in England and Wales between 1968 and 2011. Just 0.376% of these abortions were carried out to save the life of the mother. This is horrendous!
What choice did the unborn have in the vast, vast majority of these cases? None whatsoever. Pro-choice is pro-murder! It is to be in favour of the slaughter of the innocent. King Herod is infamous in the Bible for his slaughter of the innocent children in Bethlehem at the time of Christ's incarnation. These traders in the murder of the unborn are modern day Herods.
