Breda Corish (‘Hypocrisy of abortion situation is compounded by the Tories blocking reform to appease DUP,’ Feb 2) questions DUP policy on abortion in Northern Ireland.

Breda’s letter ends: “They [women in NI] deserve better–they deserve justice and equality.”

The cornerstone of civil and religious liberties (human rights) is the right to life.

Conscience, scripture and modern science affirm the pro-life position. Has Breda viewed the 7-8 week human embryo on the www.EHD.org website?
