Morgan appears to be wilfully theologically illiterate, practically an imbecile in these matters*.

Piers Morgan chooses popularity, the glories of this world, but it was Franklin Graham who showed courageous Christian inspiration here.

Morgan is also offended that God, the Creator of all that is, exercised power over life and death, but few protests are consistently heard today when nations in perpetual war constantly put to death those it deems to be sinners, unworthy of life .
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.

First Things Magazine: “To identify as pro-life post-Dobbs is not simply to hold an opinion many regard as wrong; it is to be part of an act of political and social “oppression.” And predictably, many Christians are feeling the need to “nuance” their relationship to the overturning of Roe. The National “Catholic” Reporter has excelled itself in this regard… Continue (quotation marks supplied)
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
“You shall not murder.
Listen to me, O coastlands, and give attention, you peoples from afar. The Lord called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

“‘Cursed be anyone who takes a bribe to shed innocent blood.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
But again, how sacred was life in the womb in Old Testament times?
Exodus 21: 22 “When men strive together and hit a pregnant woman, so that her children come out, but there is no harm, the one who hit her shall surely be fined, as the woman’s husband shall impose on him, and he shall pay as the judges determine. 23 But if there is harm,[a] then you shall pay life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
