British Prime Minister Theresa May faces a showdown with ministers and lawmakers in her Conservative party after refusing to back reform of Northern Ireland’s highly restrictive abortion rules after neighbouring Ireland’s vote to liberalise its laws.
Voters in Ireland, a once deeply Catholic nation, backed the change by two-to-one, a far higher margin than any opinion poll in the run up to the vote had predicted.
The prime minister is facing calls from within her cabinet to scrap the strict rules on abortion in Northern Ireland and bring the law in line with the rest of the United Kingdom.

It is a little hard to understand Mrs May’s thought’s on this, because after all the reform of Northern Ireland’s abortion laws would only bring it into line with the rest of the UK.
Also, hard to understand is why a majority of two-to-one Irish voters want to reform. Of course, whichever way you look at it the killing of an unborn baby is against God’s Law even if man’s law allows it.
A baby of twelve weeks gestation has a recognisable face, arms, legs, fingernails, and can move and wriggle about. Can abortion be any different to human infant sacrifice that God condemns very strongly?
“Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, whatsoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech, he shall surely be put to death…” Lev 20:2
The giving of children to Molech was human infant sacrifice, and was a dreadful reality among Israel’s neighbours, and so a danger to Israel who often tended to copy heathen practices, and so the strong warning from God.
Mrs May is right not to want to relax Ireland’s abortion rules, even if the majority of voters want it. However, it would be more in line with God’s Word is she were to tighten up the UK rules, or better still ban abortion altogether. That won’t happen yet, but in due time no more infants will pass through the fire of Molech (Lev 18:21, Jer 32: 35)
