11.10.2012: Move by Marie Stopes to open Belfast Clinic ‘deplorable’ says PLC

11th October 2012

Commenting on the news that Marie Stopes intends to open an abortion clinic in Belfast, Dr Ruth Cullen of the Pro Life Campaign said:

“It would be deplorable if Marie Stopes were allowed to impose an abortion regime on Northern Ireland in this manner. Clearly the official guidelines in Northern Ireland setting out the distinction between medical treatments in pregnancy and abortion need to be strengthened in light of what is being proposed.”

She continued: “Marie Stopes is in the business of providing abortions and has no regard for the rights of unborn children throughout the entire nine months of pregnancy. They are also in complete denial when it comes to the peer reviewed studies highlighting the negative long term consequences of abortion for some women. I am confident that the elected representatives in Northern Ireland will move fast to stop Marie Stopes from clearing the way for abortion.”
