A Sad State Of Affairs

........when next week will see the broadcast on UK's Channel 4 TV of an advert for a company which provides abortion "services". The Marie Stopes organisation wants to peddle their wares and sucker even more young women into their mindset.

How on earth are they going to "tart up" what they are willing to provide at a cost  ?
"Come to us, we will happily kill your baby for you if you pay us enough ?" doesn't sound like much of  an inspired sell, even if it is accurate.......

What will come after that ? In due course, can we look forward to adverts such as :

"Come to us, we will kill your Granny/elderly/needy/ill relative!"

and then eventually "Come to us, we will even kill you if you want us to...."

Abortion is all too readily available in the UK. Why on earth do we need to have it advertised on TV ? It is a very slippery slope indeed.

I have send a strongly worded email to The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP, Secretary of State for Culture, Media, and Sport, who is broadly responsible for dealing with this type of thing.

Whether any notice will be taken, I do not know, but at least I have tried...........

Not even the US has sunk this far -- YET. I'm waiting, with bated breath. Like you, I doubt that your protests will do much good, but at least you have *made* them.

But Granny (or elderly spouse) is killed every day here in the U.S. I've seen it firsthand, half a dozen times. You just have to find the right Hospice and they'll make it clear to you what their services are.

Lord have mercy on us.

I think Hospice is a little different. There's a line between preserving life at *all* costs and recognizing that at some point, it needs to complete the process. "Helping" Granny is *not* ethical, but recognizing that further treatment is only going to prolong the agony is important, and Hospice will offer Care and Comfort options through the final stages of life.
