Lord Nicholas Windsor says abortion is worse than Al-Qaeda

He calls abortion "the most single grievous moral deficit in contemporary life."

Here is the link to the original story.

  Lord Nicholas is not the first blood royal since Charles II to convert to Roman Catholicism.   Princess Beatrice of Edinburgh, Princess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha became a Roman Catholic some years after her marriage to Infante Alfonso of Borbon-Orleans.  Princess Beatrice, known as Baby Bee, was the youngest daughter of Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, and his wife, Grand Duchess Marie Alexandrovna of Russia, and thus a granddaughter of Queen Victoria.
Lord Nicholas, younger son of the Duke of Kent, is not a member of The Royal Family.  He does not carry out official engagements or invited to state dinners.  He has to work for a living although he married a very wealthy woman.
No one forces a woman to an abortion. It is a personal choice, a medical procedure that should be legal.  Governments  -- or younger sons of a royal duke -- should not be telling women what they or cannot do with their bodies. 
Lord Nicholas discusses only his desire to ban abortion. His essay makes no mention of encouraging couples to use birth control.   Abortion is not a form of birth control.  Abortions occur largely because the birth control has failed.

Well, after over 300 years, the Act of Settlement may have just proven itself useful in this one particular case. What an unfortunate statement from someone with such a high profile... surname.
