Abortionist Defends Killing Babies in Abortions: “Christians Should Love One Another”

A Scottish pro-abortion doctor accused a small group of pro-life advocates of being unloving and unChristian this week as they offered help to pregnant and post-abortive women outside a Glasgow hospital that aborts unborn babies.

The Daily Record reports Dr. Greg Irwin, a pediatric radiologist and pro-abortion activist who wants the government to censor pro-life sidewalk counselors, approached the pro-lifers this week during a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil outside the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

Photos from the report show a small group of pro-lifers standing on the sidewalk with signs offering help to pregnant mothers and counseling to those who already aborted their unborn babies. Their signs read, “Don’t be coerced into abortion,” and “Hurt by abortion? Talk to us about healing.” A third showed the image of an unborn baby sucking its thumb.

The pro-lifers were friendly and peaceful, but Irwin accused them of “harassment,” claiming their outreach was upsetting patients, according to the report.

“What you are doing is very unkind and I would like you to stop what you are doing,” Irwin said. “I know you acting out in Christian faith, which says we should love one another. You are not being loving to these people.”

The pro-abortion doctor demanded that the pro-lifers “stop coming to my hospital,” adding, “This is not fair.” Irwin also accused them of not showing respect to women.

Most of the pro-life group was made up of women. Photos and video show them praying and singing quietly on the sidewalk, and, at times, smiling welcomingly toward passersby. Their actions showed love for mothers and their unborn babies, as well as forgiveness for hurting mothers who already made the decision to end their unborn babies’ lives.

What Irwin supports goes against Christian teachings about loving and respecting others. Abortions destroy the lives of innocent living children in their mothers’ wombs, valuable human beings who, according to Christianity, are made in the image of God.

In Scotland, aborting unborn babies is legal for any reason up to 24 weeks and, in cases of fetal abnormalities, up to birth.

Irwin is one of the abortion activists urging the Scottish Government to pass a nation-wide censorship zone. He is connected to the pro-abortion group Back Off Scotland.

Currently, the British Parliament is debating legislation that would prohibit pro-life advocates from conducting peaceful outreach outside abortion facilities and hospitals that abort unborn babies. Already, some local municipalities have censorship ordinances, and a woman and a Catholic priest recently were arrested for silently praying outside abortion facilities in alleged violation of city law.
