Clare Short "not mourned" by pro-lifers Westminster, 12 May 2003--The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) has commented on the resignation of Ms Clare Short, the British Secretary of State for International Development. SPUC political spokesman Anthony Ozimic commented: "We do not mourn the resignation of Clare Short from the government, but we mourn instead the countless numbers of innocent unborn children that were killed by the abortion programmes that she helped impose upon vulnerable women in poor countries. Clare Short seemed stuck in the past with the myths that population control equals less poverty and that China's one-child policy was being softened." Mr Ozimic continued: "We lament Tony Blair's choice of Baroness Amos to succeed Clare Short. Baroness Amos' denial that the British government does not support population control has even less credibility than her predecessor's pro-abortion prejudices."
