When Does Life Start?

When Does Life Start?


Dear Sir

In her own words Jacqueline McCluggage seeks to ". . . educate around the issues of abortion".

As she is not aware of, or callously ignores, the basic issue of "When does human life Start". I quote the following statement from the proceedings of the First International Conference on Abortion — Washington, October 1967: "Our group could find no point in time between the union of the sperm and egg and the birth of the child at which point we could not say that this was a human life".

I trust that this proven medical fact will be well publicised by Miss McCluggage and her Committee.

Yours faithfully, D.A. Trotman
