Not in My Name

The red envelope campaign, which hails from the USA has spread to Britain, where we are urged to:

Get a red envelope. You can buy them at Tesco, or at party supply stores. On the front, address it to:

The Rt Hon Gordon Brown MP,
10 Downing Street,

On the back, write the following message:
This envelope represents one child who died because of an abortion.
It is empty because the life that was taken is now unable to be a part of our world."

To send such a message to a man (and his wife) who held their tiny ten day old baby daughter as she died, in a country where we have cabinet government, not presidential, and where, should you feel passionately about something, you have access to your MP 365 (ish) days per year, is an act of premeditated, vicious cruelty, unworthy of a right thinking christian person.

Shame on you. And if you were one of those people pouring out sympathy for David Cameron on the loss of his precious son, Ivan, a few weeks ago, double shame on you. How long does compassion last? Or does it have a party affliation.

You know, I cannot imagine the personal pain that Mr Brown and his wife felt, but that does not change the fact that he is our prime minister and runs a government that runs a country where babies can be murdered for no reason at all. My own son was almost killed at his birth mother's request so we feel very strongly about this issue. Mr Brown could do something about abortion, if he wanted to - and despite his much-vaunted moral compass, he doesn't seem to want to - maybe because it would lose him votes?

But you will note that the post title says, not in MY name, rather than not in yours.
No given number of wrongs add up to a single right.
