Abor­tion clinic in Sligo

The Sligo Champion - - OPINION -

Dear Sir,

As you know, the lives of Sligo peo­ple re­volve around our chil­dren. We have great re­gard for the ex­cel­lent, life sup­port­ing, care pro­vided at our Univer­sity Hospi­tal and also for the work of our res­cue ser­vices. If a child is in peril in wa­ter, in fire or on the slopes of Ben­bul­ben, the men and women of our res­cue ser­vices will do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to bring that child back home safely. There is no room in Sligo for a fa­cil­ity the pri­mary pur­pose of which, is to de­stroy the lives of un­born chil­dren.

If an abor­tion clinic were to be set up say, in Sligo Hospi­tal, the grim re­al­ity would soon come to light of what is re­ally in­volved in the “ter­mi­na­tion of preg­nan­cies”. No “ex­clu­sion zone” would be able to hold back the tor­rent of re­vul­sion and protest that would be di­rected against the “abat­toir for in­fants” in our city.

Re­gards,

Ea­mon Fitz­patrick, Strand­hill Road, Sligo.
