Now, thou son of man, whilt thou judge the bloody city? yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominations Ezekiel 22:2 AKJV

Julia Upton MBE tried to kill my 'pro-life' blog in its 1st trimester! [My crazy year as an Abolition Reformer]
"I'll never have you on my radio show again!" was the last I heard from Jonathan Vernon Smith before the BBC bought my interview to an abrupt end. Apparently, my description of abortion procedures was too graphic and my Christian apologetic too Evangelical. So here I was: voiceless. I was despondent. 10,000 babies had died since Julia Upton allowed infant murder at her MK Community Foundation in 2010. I felt I'd made every mistake an abolitionist could make: ecumenism, secularism, placing trust in numbers etc. I had become an expert in what not to do. By default, I had no other option left than to do things right: God's way. However, there was a seemingly insurmountable problem: me.
There is a stirring in the pro-life organisations in the UK. A slow realisation that through compromise and cowardice we have missed our opportunities to engage in the fight for life in a way pleasing to God. I myself, despite reading The Bible every day failed to recognise that throughout it, there are numerous examples of God chastising those who make unholy alliances, seek safety in numbers or leave their spiritual armour at home.
We have the sin of Solomon and Samson on display around the world with unholy matrimonies of Christians and Catholics in legion pro-life initiatives and marches. Born Again Christians can be seen fellowshipping with rosary fiddlers summoning 'Mary's' help like they're the witch of Endor! Mary is DEAD, there is but One mediator betwixt God and man: Christ Jesus!
Dear Rev. Stephen Norrish MBE,
Have you lately read the book of Joshua? I have and thought it remarkably represents the battle before us to rid Milton Keynes of child sacrifice thus staying God's Wrath from befalling us and our beloved Town. It's a battle between fear, compromise and obedience to God's commands. Joshua, a type of Jesus, leading by example from the frontline, refusing ecumenical compromise, he served God alone. Did Joshua wink at Achan's sin in the camp? Nay! Joshua both uncovering and destroying it! What about the Gibeonites, did Joshua tolerate them to carry on their idolatries, fornications and child killing? Certainly not! The Gibeonites had the protection of Joshua only when they repented and served Joshua's God. If we are to lay claim to such safety in our Joshua: Jesus, we have to continually search out sin in our own camps and destroy it; there can be no toleration! Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
Why then as Preacher of God's Word and Director of Milton Keynes Christian Foundation have you tolerated those whoremongers - Brook: turning your HQ, Foundation House into a dispensary of condoms, abortion referrals and sexual pleasure advice on sodomy and sex toys? What concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
For us, that truly care for the welfare of all children choosing a creche requires more than choosing the one closest to home. We research Ofsted reports, google user reviews and might even look into the ethics of those providing the creche. That's what I did with Childcare Pathways in Milton Keynes. They have their creche in the Christian Foundations Wolverton HQ, Foundation House, home to Mission Partnership their governing body. The creche is an enterprise of the Christian Foundation. I'd like to tell you why as a parent and a Born-Again Christian I can not recommend Childcare Pathways.
In Milton Keynes, aborting one's child is no longer such a clinical affair, thanks to MK Mission Partnership! Mission Partnerships "outreach arm" - MK Christian Foundation, has set up a cafe inside the local abortion facility on Midsummer Boulevard 100 metres from the ecumenical megachurch - Christ The Cornerstone. MK Community Foundation who facilitate 34 abortions per week and the supply of abortion pills at their Acorn House headquarters is even providing free internet access to their onsite Cafe guests. Women can down abortion pills and Latte whilst awaiting their baby to be flushed down the same sewer as the Cornerstone Megachurch. And with the free wi-fi, women can write TripAdvisor a review of this convenient one-stop death shop!
You're not welcome here, don't come back!" the receptionist told me when I asked to use the toilet at Milton Keynes Community Foundation whilst organising a public demonstration opposing their facilitating the abortion of 34 babies per week.
It's the kind of unchristian welcome that a number of guests have had whilst residing at a Christian Guild Holiday hotel in the UK. But the link goes deeper than mere manners because the Director of Christian Guild Holidays is also a Trustee of Milton Keynes Community Foundation!
2016 marks the 150th Birthday of Barnardos children’s charity. Founded by Thomas Barnardo in 1866 in Stepney, London. Barnardo is famous for transforming the lives of around 60,000 destitute boys and girls. Reading his life story written by his personal secretary, A.E. Williams I was intrigued by a prophecy Barnardo made of what would happen to his charity if it were ever to abandon the Biblical foundations on which he had so carefully built it. Not knowing anything about modern day Barnardos I was horrified to discover Dr Barnardos worst nightmare was unfolding in my own lifetime. A little background would be helpful to appreciate just how far those Biblical foundations have been recklessly abandoned.

"I often feel like Corrie Ten Boom... and perhaps more accurately, Corrie Ten Boom is just like you and I. The only thing different about her was she allowed the Love of God, to overtake and control her in certain situations, to be able to love her enemies and forgive them. I could share many more examples of those who loved and forgave their enemies, often at the cost of themselves. And as I wish to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, one can take life lessons on this from those who faced tremendous challenges on Loving our enemies.
Does the passage of Scripture, Matthew 5, posted below, move you to tears like it does me?

Dear Ian Revell
This week on Midsummer Boulevard 34 unborn children will be murdered on your watch. Today you became CEO of MK Community Foundation, after serving for 40 years at the local YMCA (Young Man’s Christian Association) which was once Presided over by Lord Ashley 7th Earl of Shaftesbury. I would like to quote Shaftesbury and say “On behalf of the most helpless, if not the most afflicted, portion of the human race” I am writing to you today in the utmost urgency. Your predecessor [Julia Anne Upton MBE] has left you with an unholy inheritance, that of an abortion facility on site at your HQ Acorn House. A facility which the regulator Care Quality Commission describe as a "busy clinic, open six days a week. On average it carries out approximately 34 abortions each week." I would hope if you won’t listen to God on this issue: ‘it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish’ [Matthew 18:14].
Maybe you will listen to Shaftesbury “This state of things is simply wicked, and the continuance of it without excuse”.
Despite living in Milton Keynes I had not heard of the local registered charity Emily's Star until I was asked to deliver a donation of tiny knitted mittens and hats. Emily’s Star raise awareness of Trisomy 18 the UK’s second most common syndrome after Downs. and provide neonatal boxes of gifts for mums and their premature babies. The registered charity is named after the founders own daughter, Emily who passed away at 26 days after an emergency cesarian section and having been found to have Trisomy 18. Unlike Downs Syndrome, Trisomy 18 is usually fatal, less than ten percent of babies getting to see their first birthday but some living past their tenth.
