Link to breast cancer

Fergus Garrett, Vatuwaqa, Suva
Saturday, January 21, 2017

SINCE my letter on the breast cancer abortion link, I have had only two responses. One was from the local International Planned Parenthood Federation representative, recently arrived from Australia, not a medical person.

She declined to respond to the evidence I supplied.

The other was from a Fijian man, a resident in Australia, also not a medical person.

I have waited in vain for some comment from the Fiji Cancer Society leadership or the Ministry of Health who I thought would be concerned.

I have been concerned about the issue of abortion since the Pro-Life Society was founded in 1972, under the patronage of Dr Mary Schramm.

It seems to be a topic that is not to be discussed in this forum.
