28 / 02 / 2013 - Sinn Fein are committing `political suicide` by supporting Marie Stopes International
[01-03-2013] LATEST: Amendment to Stop Marie Stopes killing unborn babies could be blocked
Sinn Fein says it opposes an amendment coming before the Northern Ireland Assembly that aims to stop Marie Stopes International from killing unborn children in Northern Ireland [see BBC NEWS]. The Director of Marie Stopes in Belfast - Dawn Purvis - have admitted they would perform surgical abortions up to 24 weeks and beyond.
The aim of the amendment is to strengthen the laws protecting unborn babies.
But Caitriona Ruane from Sinn Fein said the move by the DUP's Paul Givan and the SDLP's Alban Maginness was an attempt to restrict a woman's so-called 'right to abortion'.
When Marie Stopes opened in Belfast last October, the Sinn Fein Deputy Leader Martin McGuinness said "Well it's a private institution…that is setting itself up as…a competitor to what's happening within the health service."
Sinn Fein are committing "political suicide". Against the views of the vast majority of people in Northern Ireland, Sinn Fein are now supporting Marie Stopes International - a private institution which exploits vulnerable women by charging them up to £1900 to kill their unborn babies.
The amendment to the criminal justice bill will be debated and voted on in the NI Assembly next Tuesday.
Tell Sinn Fein that you want unborn babies and their mothers protected from abortion, and that you are totally opposed to Marie Stopes International and the killing of unborn babies.
Marie Stopes have admitted performing illegal abortions all over the world [see video], and they now want to challenge our pro-life laws in Northern Ireland.
Tell Sinn Fein that you expect them, as elected representatives, to defend the right to life of unborn babies.
Urge them to ACT NOW in your name to Stop Marie Stopes and ensure their Belfast 'abortion centre' is closed.
If you are a Sinn Fein voter, and they fail to give you these guarantees, tell them that you will not vote for them in future elections.
