Sir: Muslim Aid and the Muslims in Britain were very pleased to read that the new campaign by the Archbishop Thomas Cardinal Winning in Scotland to protect unborn children from being killed through abortion has been successful as the first child from this pro-life scheme has been born ("First child born in anti-abortion deal", 21 July).

Following the launch of this noble campaign in March, I sent from Muslim Aid pounds 5,000 as a first contribution in order to help to save life.

We Muslims believe strongly in the sanctity of life, and only God the creator of all life is the owner of life. In Islam, suicide, assisted suicide or euthanasia and abortion are forbidden. Muslims today are moving to join the pro-life campaign in Britain with our good Christian friends in order to keep God's law.
