Human Life International welcomes issues raised by undercover journalist feature in The Times 

Patrick McCrystal, Executive Director of Human Life International Ireland, has responded to an article in Monday’s edition of The Times by Ellen Coyne who used an undercover journalist to pose as a pregnant client.

“We stand by our counsellors in speaking the truth about the horror of abortion and the humanity of the unborn child,” he stated.

“We welcome this feature in that it raises profoundly important issues that deserve wider public discussion around the very meaning of life and truth, and what information women are truly entitled to receive from ALL Crisis Pregnancy Agencies” he continued.

McCrystal concluded “Attempts to silence or smear authentic Catholic voices cannot change the truth about the sacredness of human life and society’s duty of care to mothers, fathers and their unborn children.”
