Statue is inspired
Whatever Robin Goodwin and Anne Vickers think of the stutue (Opinion, July 11) belittling the young pregnant women of Ilfracombe is very hurtful and demeaning to those young girls, who for whatever reason, need help and guidance.
God created women to bear children, to be a helpmate to man, therefore men are involved.
Whichever way our path leads us in this life, it is up to the individual and our own free will response to Jesus.
The statue depicts a pregnant woman standing on the books of law – whether a symbol of Gods’ law in the Bible or the law of the land.
The pregnancy depicts life, and the birth of a nation. The sword, I would hope, would be the two-edged sword of God’s living word, the Bible.

I have been told, but not having seen it, that there is also a spilling out from her side, which I think would be symbol of abortion. God’s word reads that you shall not kill.

We are inspired, I believe by God, whether conciously or not. He has gifted us.
All pregnant women should be proud of our bodies. When we have a precious life within us, it is a gift bestowed on us by our creator.
The Complete Jewish Bible tells us, in Hebrews 4:13: “Before God, nothing is hidden, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of him to whom we must render an account.”
