Liz Truss: New PM… Where Does She Stand On Abortion? Exactly Where You’d Expect: All For…

From The Telegraph…

Liz Truss has been named as the new leader of the Conservative Party and Britain’s next Prime Minister.

The former foreign secretary has an exceptionally busy in-tray, with global issues – chiefly the war in Ukraine – right at the top.  Early phone calls are expected to be made to Volodymyr Zelensky and Joe Biden, as Ms Truss sets out her foreign policy priorities and cements crucial relationships with key allies. Already, Russia has released a statement saying that relations between London and Moscow are so bad, “it’s hard to imagine anything worse.”

Editor writes…  

 In 2022, Truss said: “I share the values of the Christian faith and the Church of England, but I’m not a regular practising religious person” – Wikipedia

So, given that even the allegedly best of the “pro-life” Catholic MPs keep their “views” on abortion firmly in check, not to interfere with their careers, it would seem that the unborn baby is still in as much danger as ever, now that we have a woman “who shares Christian values” set to take the top office in government.  Gimme a break.

    I think it’s almost a given that any politician seeking an influential position these days would have to be pro-abortion / pro LGBT/ pro-euthanasia / pro-anything else anti-Christian, otherwise the media and co. would hound them to death before they even got started.

      I expect you’re right, but she should at least take immediate action to end the massive energy price rises so that nobody needs to make the choice to eat or heat, including mothers of new babies. It’s like we’re having to live the way people did right after the second world war. All that so-called progress gone.

      I keep asking myself, at what stage, at what point in their lives, do these politicians make that decision. What could possibly make them think it is morally acceptable to kill unborn babies at any point, including up to birth. What possible career is worth it? Killing, not just unborn babies, but one’s conscience?

        If these globalist droids even have a conscience, it was obviously malformed early in life.

        “Gee, fly me on a private jet to Switzerland to hobnob with the big shots in posh hotels? All expenses paid? Who cares about babies? Where do I sign?”

        BTW, is it just me, or does this droid bear a certain physical resemblance to your Head Fish?

        RCA Victor,

        No way! Sturgeon and Truss dislike each other. Here’s Liz giving her opinion of Nicola very publicly recently…

      RCA Victor,

      That article was an eye-opener for me. I didn’t know Liz Truss had been so actively pro-remain in the Brexit campaign. Nor did I realise how much she’s into the “build back better” etc WEF elite. I’m getting more and more depressed as the day wears on. And to think tomorrow she’ll be on Scottish soil. Shudder!

    She’s a W.E.F. droid just like the other candidate. She stands for everything the globalist puppet masters say. She’s also a warmonger: let’s not forget she encouraged Brits to head off to Ukraine as mercenaries before being informed this was illegal. We now know that there was a peace deal on the table back in April that the UK and US scuppered. This is a globalist, pro-death and godless administration.

      I’m inclined to agree. On moral and global issues, politicians of any stripe all seem to have one paymaster. It’s a rare creature that will break the fetters. I don’t think Truss is that type. Please God I’ll be proved wrong.

      Dear friends

      Tweedle Dee has replaced Tweedle Dum.

      They will do as instructed they are factotums of the global elites.

      Every blessing

        LOL! I completely agree!

    Over at The Conservative Woman blog they’ve posted an article highlighting the fact that Truss is the UK’s third woman Prime Minister. I couldn’t resist leaving the following comment…

    The UK’s third woman Prime Minister and not one of them even remotely concerned to end the scandal of abortion. No wonder the latest craze is to define what, precisely, IS a woman. One does wonder.

      Andrew Q,

      That’s disappointing to read. I was one of those saying “give her a chance” but if she’s all for ramping up the Ukraine war, count me out. If she’s just “Boris Johnson in drag” that’ll soon show through. Politics is such a mess, and it seems there’s just no politician with any real character.

    The Telegraph reports that Therese Coffey is to become deputy PM and Health Secretary.

    At first, I thought this might be good news – I believe she is a Catholic – but then I recalled a previous discussion thread where it was noted that Coffey had refused to answer a simple question defining what a woman was.

    She will obviously struggle then, to provide women’s healthcare in her role as Health Secretary.

    I think Coffey is whom Athanasius once identified as having grown up as part of an SSPX congregation in the North of England (apologies if I have this mixed up).

    If that is accurate then it is certainly true that, on becoming politicians, people must sell off their consciences and honour for 30 pieces of silver.

      Gabriel Syme,

      I remember that discussion about Therese Coffey attending the SSPX in her youth, but she’s as secular as the rest of them now. It’s been pointed out on this blog before (even by Editor, I think!) that attending the Latin Mass is not, of itself, proof of, or a guarantee of, anyone being a “real” Catholic – not even if the Masses are celebrated in an SSPX chapel! That’s probably a heresy to say here, sorry!

      I think you are right on the mark in your final paragraph – the temptation to betray their beliefs seems to cause Catholic politicians in particular to take those 30 pieces of silver. I wonder if they ever have uneasy moments when they realise what they are doing?

    Well, here’s how to do it without worrying about being controversial … the Scottish Catholic Media Office statement of welcome to the new PM…

    Scotland’s Catholic Bishops congratulate new PM
    6 September 2022

    Speaking on Behalf of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland, Bishop Hugh Gilbert, the Conference President and the Bishop of Aberdeen said:

    “On behalf of Scotland’s Catholic Bishops, I offer our congratulations and the promise of our prayers to Liz Truss as she becomes the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. We note that she became Prime Minister in Scotland after meeting the Queen at Balmoral, which is situated in the Diocese of Aberdeen.”

    “The bishops of Scotland are aware of the many serious issues affecting both our society and the wider world. We pray for the new Prime Minister, that she will be given the wisdom needed to address them with courage and compassion.”

    Here’s one commentator online today, answering the charge that Rishi Sunak “stabbed Boris in the back”.

    Response: “It’s hard to stab someone in the back when they are so busy shooting themselves in the foot.”

    I’ll reserve my judgment about this new PM. She’s promising plenty but don’t they all, when they’re in campaign mode. It is a bit depressing to think she is the third female PM and not one of them has been pro-life.

    Seems Truss was not always anti-lockdown, despite what she is saying now…

    Further to mention of Therese Coffey above, the media and BPAS are now attacking her. They claim she is a “practicing Catholic” – I wonder where?

    She recently voted against the permanent provision of abortion pills in England and Wales.

    But – like Jacob Reese Mogg – she seems at great pains to play her own values down and “keep the peace”.

    Were it me, I would say something like “There is no parliamentary majority at present to change abortion law. However, I recognise abortion is abhorrent and will always personally seek to end it. Pregnancy does not occur by accident and it is better to avoid unwanted pregnancy, than to kill innocents. Part of democracy is encountering views you disagree with. If you are uncomfortable with this, then obviously you realise your own views are indefensible. A worthwhile democracy recognises that human life is precious. I believe the current law is widely abused / flouted and would see it as a step forward if the law as it stands was first implemented properly.”

      Gabriel Syme,

      Just because Therese Coffey isn’t attending the SSPX doesn’t mean she’s not practising, although I know some SSPX people think that.

      • Gabriel Syme


        That’s not what I was suggesting (I myself often attend Mass at non-SSPX TLM venues, typically on First Saturdays and Holy Days).

        I asked “where?” because my impression from a previous thread was that Coffey was raised in an SSPX congregation but had since fallen away from the Society. (I am open to correction regarding my recollection).

        And hence my curiosity as to where she might practice – it would be unusual / odd, in my opinion, for her to now attend the typical novus ordo parish (but not impossible, granted).

        There, of course, are many worthwhile places to attend Mass outside of the SSPX.

    Here’s the Catholic Herald on the new PM – note the quote from the allegedly traditional Catholic Health Secretary, Therese Coffey.

    Translating… she doesn’t condemn the murder of unborn babies although she’d prefer it didn’t happen.

    I’ve heard that Miss Coffee attends Mass at Westminster Cathedral.

      That would be the novus ordo then. Interesting.
