The Roman Catholic Bishop of East Anglia has grabbed his 15 minutes of fame and decided to resign from Amnesty International because Amnesty support a campaign to decriminalise abortion where the mother's life is in danger.
What a brave man Michael Evans is. A man, celibate man one presumes, knowing that he will never have to face the danger of being made pregnant by a rapist or have his life put in danger because of pregnancy. Knowing this will never happen to him, he presumes to tell others what they should do. A real "do as I say, not as I do" man.
It is not as if Amnesty International are calling for the wide scale legalisation of abortions, all they ask is that it be decriminalised in certain very specific cases. Why does Michael Evans believe it is right for a woman to be made a criminal simply for trying to save her own life ?
Is it any wonder that more and more people have a complete lack of faith in religious people telling us how to live our lives.
