"A Disaster for Women and the Unborn": Christian Doctor and Abortion Expert Laments Ireland's Devastating Referendum Result

"There is no dispute that what is growing inside the woman is a new, individual human being, with its own body, and its own interests, and its own vulnerability." -Dr. Calum Miller

(Ireland)—[Faithwire.com] Following the shocking majority decision to repeal the Eighth Amendment of the Irish constitution and allow legislation to be passed that will liberalize abortion laws in the country, one British doctor has given his take on the tragic turn of events.

"I wasn't pro-life until I went to medical school and saw the reality of abortion, seeing the reality of it for the unborn, for the women involved, and learning more about the ethics and embryology in a rigorous academic environment," Miller told Faithwire. "But what it showed was clear: the unborn are not just ‘clumps of cells', they are valuable human beings and members of the human community. There is no dispute that what is growing inside the woman is a new, individual human being, with its own body, and its own interests, and its own vulnerability"...
