More on Ireland's Crisis Pregnancy Agency

I wrote recently about the Crisis Pregnancy Agency in Ireland which, as part of the cutbacks in health spending, is to be subsumed into the Department of Health. It seems that the Agency now consists of fourteen agencies that, with the exception of Life and Cura, offer abortion as an ‘option’ to pregnant women. This, of course, is in direct contradiction of the mandate under which the Agency was established. It is to be hoped that if, and when, Life and Cura are directly under the umbrella of the Department of Health and its various sub-agencies such as the Health Service Executive (who have been responsible for bringing many young girls under their ‘care’ to the UK to have their unborn children aborted), they will be allowed to maintain the pro-life ethos and principles which – until now – they have promoted.
