Madam -- Marie Stopes's move into Belfast creates dilemmas for many Catholics, including me. No one really likes the idea of abortion being carried out in this country, or anywhere else, but the thought of vulnerable girls and young women being exported to Britain to have an abortion is a concerning matter.

But aren't these values core positions for Catholics?
