From Dr John Houghton SIR Labelling Labour as the party

of free abortion and Catholics who vote Labour as complicit in the number of abortions being carried out in this country does a great injustice to Catholics within the Labour movement (Letters, March 9). These Catholics are in no way complicit in the present working of the law in relation to abortion: there is within the Labour Party, the Labour Life Group. In addition. Labour works to give marginalised groups within society protection of economic rights (eg the minimum wage) which would be strong factors in enabling women to keep their children. Also, the other main political parties are not as innocent of abortion as Paul Hickman's letter seems to imply: several of their key figures voted for it.

Indeed, one should vote according to the pro-life stance of particular candidates and not for any particular party affiliation alone.

Yours faithfully, JOHN HOUGHTON Grimsargh, Lanes
