Irish pro-abortion group vows to ensure cancelled flights to Great Britain does not mean cancelled abortions

By Dave Andrusko

“Poor planning and a bit of bad luck,” as the Economist put it, has forced Ryanair, Europe’s largest budget airlines, to cancel some 2,100 flights starting on September 16th and continuing through October.

But pro-abortionists are leaping to action ensure that the cancellation of some 150 scheduled flights from Dublin to UK airports over the next six weeks does not affect the estimated “hundreds” of pregnant woman who would fly to the UK to abort their babies.
