Constitutional nationalists are betraying children who are unborn

I agree totally with Aontu’s Emmet Doyle (March 20, see link below) that the betrayal of the unborn is clearly due to the moral cowardice of constitutional nationalism.

It will be interesting if those who are quick to identify as pro life will do the decent thing and withdraw their support as the five pro-life groups have requested, again covered in your paper (same link below).

However, given that the SDLP, who still deludes themselves as being pro-life failed to join with unionist parties in 2019 in protecting the unborn; but walked out following the coattails of Colum Eastwood and Claire Hanna, I will not be holding my breath.

Eastwood and Michelle O Neill are often up front and centre about tragic events such as Bloody Sunday, but it seems that they are prepared for every other day to be as bloody.

In the name of God, have we not had enough blood and murder for over fifty years, without adding to this dark legacy, the deliberate destruction of unborn children?
