NB Right to Life reacts to Clinic 554 news

NEWS RELEASE For Immediate Release Jan. 16, 2014 Executive director Peter Ryan released the following statement in response to news that “Clinic 554” will open and perform abortions at the former Morgentaler Clinic, located next to New Brunswick Right to Life’s offices.   “We are not exactly celebrating the news. It’s nothing short of a disaster for women’s health, and worse for the babies of our province. “It seems they bill themselves as providing ‘reproductive services’. That’s a misnomer, when most of the so-called services are about preventing – or putting an end to – reproduction. Certainly when dead babies up to 16 weeks gestation are part of your menu of services, that’s as anti-reproductive as you can get. “Whatever else they offer, an abortion clinic is still an abortion clinic. Thousands of lives have been prematurely ended at this site, thousands of women have had to deal with emotional and physical injury from abortion. I wonder why any sane person would want to be become a patient at such a place. I suppose desperate people will be tempted, which will be so sad.   “There is such a thing as informed choice in facing unexpected pregnancy, support in facing pregnancy, and help in dealing with abortion aftermath. Where woman can get it is our Women’s Care Center. They’ve never been able to find it next door. This news  changes nothing. I hope vulnerable women are not misled.” - 30 - Contact: Peter Ryan (506) 459-8990 or 1-888-796-9600
