Channel Four are showing a series of short films this week about different people’s views on abortion. Dr Trevor Stammers spoke tonight and you can watch the clip on the Channel 4 website. Here are some excerpted comments:
‘To me it’s an absolutely chilling thought that the Virgin Mary would have been a prime candidate for abortion these days.
As I doctor and a Christian I believe abortion harms women and society in general…In my heart of hearts I never believe that killing your unborn child is the best way forward
I think the profession as a whole feels a huge amount of unspoken shame about its increasing involvement with abortion not because women are sick but purely because children are viewed as a social inconvenience
I think that - those doctors who work full time - something happens to them... What must it do to you day after day pulling out bits of fetus from women’s wombs?
We have a charge from Christ to care for the weakest in society and who could be weaker than the baby in the womb?’
