Irish Medical Times advertises abortion

The Irish Medical Times has recently started to publish ads for Marie Stopes International, which is one of the major British abortion businesses.(Family and Life report) When contacted about the advertisement, the editor of the IMT, Terence Cosgrave, claimed that he had no control over who advertises in the journal and that the IMT ‘cannot dictate to our advertisers who will advertise what, where and when.’ Not even if the aim of the advertiser is to provide for the killing of a human being – in this case, the unborn child?

We are asking you to contact the publisher of the Irish Medical Times immediately to express – politely, but as strongly as possible – your objections to the fact that the IMT is providing and supporting a platform for abortionists to advertise in Ireland. Please write to David Kelly, publisher of the Irish Medical Times at: david.kelly@imt.ie, or you can phone him at: 00353-1-8176380 (from outside Ireland), or 01-8176380 (within Ireland). Alternatively, you can write a letter to him at: Irish Medical Times, 24-26 Upper Ormond Quay, Dublin 7.
