Appeal to Pro and Anti Lobby Groups

The Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital is asking all pro and anti lobby groups campaigning in the upcoming Referendum not to canvass in the vicinity of the hospital campus, especially outside the gate entrances.

 

Referendum posters, graphic displays and literature are a source of extreme distress to the many people visiting the hospital as patients, visitors and staff, not all of whom will be experiencing the traditional happy event.

 

In particular, women who have experienced, or who may be experiencing, a pregnancy loss do not need the added distress of campaigners, slogans and literature.

 

Out of concern for these women, we appeal to lobby groups and supporters to be sensitive to the needs of all of the women whom we are caring for at this time, and over the weeks leading up to the Referendum.
