Several people took part in a pro-life demonstration in Co Leitrim today

A number of people took part in a pro-life demonstration which was organised by Cos Leitrim Cares today.

While no Leitrim GP(to date) has signed up to provide abortion services, a peaceful demonstration was held at the new Carrick-on-Shannon Primary Care Centre, which is currently under construction.

Pro-life people all over the country held a ‘White Cross’ event at medical centres and GP surgeries, where doctors have signed up to provide abortion pills and referrals for surgical abortions.

The Carrick-on-Shannon demonstration commended Leitrim GPs, and has urged them not to sign up, but to promote options other than abortion.
