Despite the fact that a number of English commentators have picked up this story, there's one element I have not encountered anywhere: we are in the same position, and have been for many years. After all, we pay taxes (alright, in fairness, I only pay taxes occasionally, in the months I earn enough for the Government to decide to take some) which, in part, fund the NHS, which pays not only for abortion and contraception, but IVF those little 'sexual health' leaflets they give to teenagers to encourage them to be promiscuous and not worry about the consequences. In America, the bishops are up in arms, so I want to ask you (if there's anyone reading this), do you know when the NHS started doing this sort of thing with our money? Did the bishops of England and Wales (and Scotland and Northern Ireland) protest?
After the last year or two of reading various Catholic blogs on the internet, and being inspired by them to greater fidelity and orthodoxy, I thought I'd have a go at writing my own blog, in the hope that someone, somewhere might be inspired by it. I don't have any particular knowledge or insight, but I will do my best.
