Thank You to Charlie, for what amounts to an exceptional article.

It saddens me greatly now in Ireland and for many years in the USA, that the taking of a human life is such a cheap political point scoring issue.

I am NOT speaking of the attendance of POTUS Trump!, instead I speak of those in the US and here in Ireland, who would sell their very souls and the souls of women having abortions, on the misunderstanding that legal means either accepted, MORAL or JUST!.

ALL societies were built (literally) on the Mother's principle. The theory being that the Mother, the nurturer, the care giver and protectors of children. Would never allow the beast within Man, to get so out of control that the weakest in society could or would ever be the direct focus of mans cruelty.

Today, although I speak of only some women, Thankfully!. WOMEN, the very nurturers, care givers and protectors of children, stand on the front lines of marches, DEMANDING more freedom to abort Healthy Children for lengthier periods during pregnancy!.

Despite niceties and the ever expanding use of terminology, in an effort to sweeten words & terms, that in fact, describe the taking of defenseless Human life.

The fact is that abortion IS the killing of a defenseless Human, some say it's the murder. But as abortion is legal, the act therefore is not considered criminal, the claim of murder is all too easily written off as nonsense.

But the fact that a human life was taken IS NOT easily defended, despite use of sweetened terms such as Pro Choice, Freedom of Choice or slogans such as My Body My Choice, or claims that Men have no say, (Men die in abortion also) another I saw recently said "Because I used your sperm it gives you NO say in my right to abortion".

Feminism has almost completely assured that Men have little or NO choice, when it comes to the taking of a human life they helped create.

Furthermore, to ensure that further generations of men are intellectually sterile, when it comes to debate and thus choice, the education system is designed to stifle male creation, free thinking and now in 2020, less and less males are finishing their education and fewer again are even going to college or universities !.

In the Liberal Woke Fog that is sometimes called a mind, this is justified by the fact that in the past, women were under represented in education!. Therefore, instead of demanding equality, (as has been attained and since passed) they insist that the current status should continue, Because Men should pay for all the wrongs and the patriarchal decisions of their forefathers.

I join Eriu, in congratulating ALL who came together to demand the taking of human life should cease.

To believers I say God Bless, One and All!

To non-believers I say, Thank You ALL for standing together for the protection of the life of others.
