If you take a stand for the unborn, prepare yourself for a lot of abuse

For some people, when they want to say thank you, they send flowers. Recently the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children sent a bouquet of flowers to the Scottish Nationalist MP Dr Lisa Cameron – MP for Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow.

Why? Because they wanted to express appreciation for her stance on abortion in Parliament. On 20 June, she was the only SNP MP to vote against buffer zones outside abortion clinics. Last year, she also voted against the imposition of abortion on Northern Ireland – unlike her Westminster party leader, Ian Blackford.

Not everyone appreciates Dr Cameron’s principled stand. She is the SNP’s Westminster health spokesperson and there have been calls for her to be fired – because although she clearly cares about the health of the unborn child, apparently her stance is damaging to women’s mental health. Those who make this claim offer no evidence, other than their own political ideology, and ignore the plentiful evidence that abortion itself is harmful to women’s mental health.

As a pastor I can testify to the damaging impact that abortion has on many women’s mental health. So can Dr Cameron. She told the National newspaper: “Prior to coming into politics, I worked as a clinical psychologist in mental health for over 20 years and on no occasion did anyone ever call into question my suitability because I am a Christian with pro-life views.”
