Royal Courts of Justice in London: Victorian Gothic

One of my favorite places to visit in London.  It looks and feels like a mighty cathedral! 

One of the largest courts in Europe, the Royal Courts were built in the 1870s by Queen Victoria.  Over the highest point in the upper arch is a figure of Jesus, the supreme lawgiver.  On either side, on a lower level, are Moses and Solomon, gives of the law.   

Let us pray that English common law will one day admit that human life begins at conception -- that preborn humans in the womb are human persons under the full protection of the law.  Rule Britannia!
