Will there be anyone left to be ashamed?

The prayer intention of this year's Rosary Crusade, held in London, was the defeat of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology bill, which is due to receive its third reading in Parliament next week. Fr Marcus Holden, a London-based priest and writer, described the bill as "one of the darkest peices of social legislation ever to come out of this land."

He also said: "In the future times, I believe people in this land will hang their heads in shame at what we their ancestors have done in these times."

He is absolutely right. We will all have to account for this evil piece of legislation if it gets through, but given the extreme anti-life nature of such bills, it is difficult not to ask the question: "Will there be anyone left to be ashamed?"
