Lost in the shuffle and some of the coverage of the abortion ruling of last week is the fact that the Euro Court actually ruled AGAINST abortion rights:

STRASBOURG, December 23 (C-FAM) Europe’s highest human rights court says there is no human right to abortion in Europe’s human rights convention, and that abortion laws are the purview of sovereign states. 

The European Court of Human Rights made the statement last week in its conclusion of “A, B, and C v. Ireland.” Three anonymous plaintiffs claimed that Ireland’s strict abortion laws violated their human rights to privacy under the European Convention on Human Rights."

C.
Anonymous plaintiffs?? Really?
Now this is actually very, very surprising.

Against the trend - and likely to be contradicted/reversed.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!  He is born!

Then again, maybe not. After all, this is modern Europe. Things there are even more topsy-turvey than there are here in the dying U.S.A.

In any case, lets us pray.
Thank God the ECHR made the right decision!  Pray

Merry Christmas, Fish Eaters!
