Dutch pro-lifers say: Campaign for abortion abolition, not stricter rules
19 December 2011
The annual Dutch March for Life took place on Saturday 10 December. It is estimated that 1,400 people took part in the march, which is almost double last year's attendance.
Dr Bert P Dorenbos, President of Cry for Life and the chief organiser of the march, said: "We're not going for stricter rules, but we are called to advocate the abolition of abortion."
John Smeaton, SPUC director, commented: "Dr Dorenbos' comment is particularly applicable to the UK and misguided parliamentary moves, e.g. trying to lower the 24-week upper time-limit on most social abortions." [John Smeaton, 15 December]
