A CATHOLIC priest has condemned plans by a leading sexual health organisation to open an abortion clinic in Fallowfield – saying it will be ‘a house of death and carnage’.
And Pro-life campaigners have also called the decision to place the clinic in the heart of Manchester’s student land, ‘cynical’.
The Marie Stopes International clinic, believed to be opening in October, is in Wynnstay Grove, at the site of a former NSPCC day clinic, next to a hostel for homeless families.
Father Tom Connolly, parish priest of St Kentigern’s Church, said: "Work is going on to adapt the building to do away with the unborn. This is a house of death and carnage. The lively children of the homeless hostel will be playing next door to an abortion clinic." [Story]
