“The excellent news of Christianity is [that] when we now have failed, when we now have regrets, after we’ve finished what opposes God and his phrase, and his values and ideas, in Jesus there’s redemption.

“But we are going to take inspiration from this resolution, which reveals that change is feasible,” he mentioned.

“The scientific incontrovertible fact that life begins at conception is as true right here as it’s in America, as is the truth that all these unborn lives needs to be protected and cherished. We proceed to battle in the direction of that aim.

“This is not going to be simple. During the previous month, because it grew to become recognized that the Court was poised to overturn Roe vs Wade, pro-abortion activists waged a marketing campaign of violence to thwart justice.

“As SPUC has acknowledged earlier than, abortion is violence, violence in opposition to unborn infants and their moms. We shouldn’t be shocked when abortion apologists subsequently flip to violence to threaten pro-lifers. The pro-abortion foyer has proven its true colors.

“Given this violence, and the growing vilification of pro-lifers right here within the UK, we count on opposition. The pro-abortion pushback is perhaps excessive, however pro-lifers should stand their floor. Violence should not win.”
