On the objectivity of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom

Lady Hale also believes that there is a "duty to provide (free NHS) abortions for women from Northern Ireland in England, or indeed in Wales and Scotland." (BBC News, 27 November 2017)
We can thus say that Lady Hale is unafraid to challenge the natural law.
There is currently very little chance of a pro-family, pro-life individual becoming member of the Supreme Court. That is why we need to create islands of sanctity away from the world of politics and law. There is probably little chance of a social conservative gaining leadership positions in law or politics or medicine. Which is not to say that Catholics should avoid law or politics or medicine. But we should never give up on our principles. The establishment will not defend us.
With the sole exception that is Catholic Tradition. It is to this establishment we turn in hope. For those who follow the Calendar of 1960, the feast of Christ the King takes place on the last Sunday of October. For those who follow the Calendar of 1969, it is the last Sunday of Ordinary Time. It is surely a more important feast now than when it was established in 1925. This is because Lady Hale is not the exception to the rule. So many of the great figures of our age have little use for the natural law tradition. This feast reminds us that our allegiance is to Christ our only King. Our ultimate allegiance is not to the leaders of this world. And when they reject natural law, we resist. For the sake of our true King. It is He who reminds us that being Catholic means so much more that going to Mass on Sundays. We are called to spread the fragrance of His Kingdom as best as we can. That is all that ultimately matters.
