40 years of the Abortion Act

Today is the fortieth anniversary of the Abortion Act 1967 which legalised abortion on a wide scale in the United Kingdom.

To mark this, there was a Prayer service in Westminster Cathedral, London led by Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor. The hour long service had a full attendance.

In his talk, the Cardinal compared the campaign against abortion to the long struggle in Britain to outlaw the slave trade.
