British NGO offers services to Maltese women who want an abortion – Life Network Foundation reacts
The divide between those who are in favour and those who are against abortion may become even worse after a British NGO known as the Abortion Support Network announced in a statement that it would be extending its services in Malta and Gibraltar for women who want an abortion.
The voluntary organisation said that it was ready to even provide financial support as well as information and accommodation to women who want an abortion and who need to do it in another country because of the restrictive laws in their own country. The Organisation said that it works closely with abortion clinics in various countries.
In Malta, abortion is illegal and the Life Network Foundation is carrying out a campaign to keep it illegal.
In a statement, Life Network Foundation expressed a sense of shock that this organisation is offering services in favour of abortion. It added that as a Foundation, it offers services to provide support to women during pregnancy, for them to make the best choices for themselves and their child.
The Foundation also observed that the foreign organisation does not care about life, and does not offer any assistance for the physical and psychological repercussions of abortion. The Foundation appealed to the authorities to take the necessary measures to see that the lives of the mothers and unborn children are protected from the threat of the services offered by Abortion Support Network.
