The ProLife Alliance joins in the outcry of pro-life colleagues in Northern Ireland at the news that Marie Stopes UK is opening a clinic in Belfast, where early abortion will be one of the services provided. This highly provocative initiative is neither welcome nor necessary. The health needs of the people of Northern Ireland are more than adequately covered by the NHS.
Bernadette Smyth from the Northern Ireland pro-life group, Precious Life, is widely quoted stating that, ‘An organization which is making profits from the death of unborn children is not welcome in Northern Ireland. There will be an outcry from the people, from the government and from the churches.’
