The Pro Life Campaign has expressed disappointment that its application to be added as an amicus curiae in the Supreme Court case dealing with the rights of unborn children in the Constitution has been denied.
Commenting outside the Court after the Supreme Court decision, PLC spokesperson Caroline Simons said:
“We are disappointed that the State opposed our application. Our approach is always to ensure that the rights of mothers and the rights of the unborn boy or girl in the womb are protected. The State should have no difficulty with such a position.
“We accept the Court’s decision but consider that it may be deprived of an important perspective as a result. The Pro Life Campaign will continue to articulate a generous understanding of the rights of mothers and their unborn children.”
