No doubt Fr Julian will give a good description of last nights lecture. I just wanted to say i really enjoyed the Rev Dr Flemings talk. The explanations were clear, although a lot of it was a bit intellectually beyond me.

He had a really engaging manner..& some of the questions raised were interesting..although the usual 'rape' question was raised as ever. His answers were worth pondering on.

It was nice to see so many students & the lecture hall practically full. my little boy Andrew jr, at 7 years old was probably the youngest in the audience. strangely i was reminded ofhis entrance into the world, not too far from the University, at the Women's Hospital.

An emergency arose during his delivery, with the cord prolapsing, & the crash team, flashing lights, & a few minutes from death as his oxygen supply was cut off. This is where we should applaud medical science, as an immediate C-section was performed, & he was born within minutes (after they knocked me out!). He arrived at 9lb & none the worse for wear.Thanks be to God.Now what if they said, oh he's not a baby yet, he's not born?

& what about when they perform surgery on babies in-utero? Why would you bother if they're not babies? Who decides?

There seem to be more questions than answers at present..but thanks to Rev Dr Fleming & Fr Julian Green we are moving towards some answers. God bless them both!
