Will you commit yourself publicly to legislation banning embryo destruction and preventing any regulatory body from rubber-stamping embryo destruction?
Reply from
John Francis Higgins

My canvassers and I, have just come back from a two day campaign in Cavan-Monaghan. So, needless to say, I am delighted that you give me the honour of replying to your very relevant question. The major problem with the pace of modern day life is that social barriers are continually broken. This results in a breakdown of society. We now have daily murders.

Respect for life has been a precious grace within the Christian upbringing. If we do not have respect for life from conception; then it opens the gates as to lots of argument as to when life should be valued e.g. should abortion be not allowed at 14 weeks or near full term; at what stage should we introduce euthanasia; should we kill children who are not fully formed; should we saddle our youth with massive debt early on in life in a way that they will be slaves for the rest of their lives. Respect for life begins at conception. Nothing else should be even entertained. No WILL about it. I fully disagree with what Obama has done in reversing the Bush ban on embryo destruction.
