A pro-life British lawmaker is dead after it was confirmed he was stabbed multiple times Friday during a public meeting in Leigh-on-Sea, England.

Life News reports:

Sky News reports Sir David Amess, a Conservative MP who represents Southend West in Essex and is considered a champion of unborn children, was stabbed with a knife multiple times while he was holding a constituency meeting at Belfairs Methodist Church.

Amess, 69, died at the church a short time later while being treated by emergency services, according to Essex Police.

Police said they arrested a 25-year-old man at the scene and recovered a knife. They did not release the man’s name or a possible motive yet, but they said they do not believe anyone else was involved.

British pro-life groups mourned Amess’s death, praising him as a champion for life and religious freedom in Parliament. The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) expressed horror at the news of his murder.

“Sir David was a great friend of SPUC and staunch defender of the dignity of every human life. Let us remember Sir David and all that he did in trying to restore a culture of life in the United Kingdom,” the pro-life organization wrote.

here again, just goes to show you you DO NOT need a stinkin’ gun to kill someone – a KNIFE does the job just as well, atho probably a bit messier. I can see it now the libtards standing up en-mass to outlaw knives. Guess we’ll go back to prehistoric times to eat our steaks…………………HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the other hand, I wonder if Sir David Amess privately wished for a gun when the perp first brandished the knife.
