Death hotline opened

MSI has shown its usual sensitivity and respect for the laws of sovereign nations by launching an abortion phoneline in Ireland to make it easier for women in Ireland to travel abroad for abortions.

A letter in a Maltese newspaper recently made the point that when women travel abroad for abortions, it is clearly not in the best interests of the child and should be regarded as abduction. This is particularly the case where the rights of the unborn are recognised in the country's constitution. Interesting point. 'Kidnap and kill' phoneline doesn't sound quite as polite as 'abortion helpline', does it?
