I completely endorse the sound advice offered by R Knewstub (LT, June 30) in relation to assisted suicide and abortion.

The miracle of life is God-given and the embryonic human being has been created.

Measuring an arbitrary number of weeks post-conception to establish a legitimate (in accordance with man’s laws) date when the unborn foetus can be aborted is an illegitimate (not in accordance with God's laws) act of murder.

Termination of life at any age and for any reason is against God’s laws. Man makes laws to suit the majority view and we have seen the consequences of this in our own lifetime when governments appease the populous.

Playing fast and loose with life, unborn or not, is playing fast and loose with your own mortality.


Because God says so – that is how serious it is. Phil Heaton, Blackburn.
