Note from the Executive Director of the New Brunswick Right to Life, Peter Ryan:
I do not object to you writing to Mike Murphy, but if you do please make a point of asking him if he will be taking action to protect children at the Dumont and Chaleur Hospitals. We really need to press him on this.
Please do not be too complimentary toward him, as he really said nothing at the March other than his personal views that life of the unborn is sacred etc. - he said absolutely nothing about taking any action whatever to protect the unborn. If you praise him too much he will take it the wrong way - "Well that was easy, all I had to say is I am personally pro-life and I don't have to do anything about it at all!"
You can, however, say things like "I hope you will not be intimidated by those who passionately promote abortion rights and who think that somehow because of your personal views you cannot carry out your job responsibly."
