Shaking My Head In Disbelief

I continue to be appalled at the morally gutless way in which Tony Blair runs this country. Considering his wife is RC, how she lets him get away with this also amazes me:

"Advisers to British government ministers have said that schoolchildren should be given compulsory lessons about the benefits of abortion. The Independent Advisory Group on Teenage Pregnancy has recommended that children as young as five years old should be taught about abortion. They said that the lessons should aim to combat the "myths" that might put teenagers off having abortions. [Daily Mail, 7 September] The advisory group has also said that free condoms should be handed out to children in sports halls, shops and swimming pools. Gill Frances, who leads the group, refused to specify the age of the children who should be given condoms but indicated that it could include children as young as twelve. Robert Whelan of the think-thank, Civitas, said: "Up until now we have always taken a dim view about people who go to swimming baths to talk to little boys about sex. Now it seems to be Government policy. This is not progress." [Telegraph, 8 September]"

Elizabeth,

I agree with you completely!

It seems that the Labour party has become a haven for the morally bankrupt.

I am awaiting the day HM disolves parlaiment and new elections take place. Hopefully, a non Labour alternative will form the government. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that many of the Conservatives are any better in this regard.

This just goes to show the sad state of modern society.

Cherie may be a "practising" Catholic, but I don't think she is bothered with following the Church's moral teaching on matters of life and death.

Brian, a general election is a long way off and on these sorts of moral issues there will be no respite from the Tories. The Tories may try to hold the line where it is, and move forward at a slower pace, but there will be not turning the clock back.
