Life matters and the pro life rally in Belfast, Ireland says just that

HUNTSTOWN, IRELAND (July 9, 2012) - Today, Saturday July 7th 2012, a pro-life gathering of up to 4000 attended this summers pro-life rally in Belfast, Ireland against abortion. The rally alternates each year between Dublin and Belfast, raising new pro-lifers around Ireland. The sun shined, and the forecast of rain never materialized, which made for a great fun filled family event, organised by an amalgamation of pro-life groups north and south of Ireland.

The rally took place from the Custom House Square in Belfast and a long & lively procession walked around Belfast's City Hall to let the politicians know their sentiments. Life matters and the pro life rally in Belfast says just that. At City Hall, the rally was greeted with pro-choice chants by up to 100 "pro-choice" demonstrators, many of whom traveled up in a small community bus from Dublin to press for abortions.

Ireland being such a small country, these same demonstrators had a quick bite to eat at the same main service station as one bus load of pro-lifers on their way home... But how is it that some people feel that life matters, and others think choice matters, and abortion is ok? What is it that makes someone decide its ok to kill a baby inside the mothers womb? Perhaps we need to look at Haeckel to understand this, among other things.

Haeckel prepared a forged embryonic diagram, publishing it in academic circles around the late 19th century and he proposed it as evolutionary re-capitulation evidence which supported Darwin's theory of evolution. The re-capitulation shows various stages of the development of the human embyro, which goes from a fish to a salamander, to a tortoise, to a chick, to a hog, to a calf, to a rabbit, to a human. Haeckel's embryonic diagram is now known in scientific circles as a fraud, but it still appears in some school text books today.

So you could suggest that because it appears in school text books, it is potentially giving fraudulent information to school children on the human embryo. The school leaver might then think, well its not fully human until it is born, so abortion is not immoral. Some people are also pro-choice perhaps because they have deep seated issues in their past, that they have yet to deal with, or forgive?

But pro-life groups know that a baby is a baby from conception, and is fully human from the word go. Life matters and the pro life rally in Belfast says just that. Those who think choice matters have no doubt been mislead by pro-choice propaganda, and have little scientific evidence to support their views. Pro-life on the other hand has the kind of propaganda that is based on sound science, and fits in with good moral living and healthy family values.

This sound science that convinces many Catholics that life matters, is good news for pro-creationists too, as sound science has shown itself to support non Darwinian Evolutionary Views.
