10 March 2000

10 March 2000 The Life organisation is alleging that abortion providers such as Marie Stopes International are railroading women into having terminations. Mr Peter Garrett, research director, said that quick abortions during women's lunch-hours could cause post-abortion trauma. He pointed out that financial backing for abortion was 20 times more than funding for pro-life activities.

The church is disappointed that the ruling Popular Party did not repeal abortion legislation, though many bishops consider it the least anti-life party because it says it will not widen access to abortion. [The Universe, 12 March, 2000] Anti-abortion protesters disrupted the Irish prime minister's keynote speech to his party's recent conference.
