Compassion for the unborn child
Yesterday in her column in the Belfast Telegraph Finola Meredith wrote about the opening of a Marie Stopes Clinic in Belfast. Abortion is an issue on which she holds strong views and I note that she is writing about the same subject in the Irish Times today.
The title in the Belfast Telegraph was 'Why pro-life zealots need to show more compassion.'
I believe that we all need to approach the subject of abortion with love and compassion.
However it seems to me that the stance adopted by pro-abortionists is one that itself lacks compassion.
I would therefore like to suggest another viewpoint on the subject: 'Why pro-abortion zealots should show more compassion ... for the unborn child.'
