Is Abortion Cool?

Dear Sir/Madam,

I wish to complain about the biased news article broadcast on your station on the morning of Saturday 18th October, at both 11am and 12noon.

In an item, you reported that there were two rallies in progress in Belfast, one pro-life at Stormont, and the other pro-abortion at the City Hall. This was immediately followed by a sound-bite from one of the organisers of the pro-abortion rally, in which she described abortion as 'perfectly acceptable.'

What was disappointingly absent was any comment from the pro-life organisers. Was this a deliberate decision on behalf of the newsteam, or the radio station as a whole?

Hopefully the news broadcasts will not be so one-sided in the future.

A copy of this letter has been forwarded to Cool FM via their comment page, and a paper copy will be in the post later on.
