Will The Electorate Reject Griffith’s Employment?
The newly chosen BLP candidate for St. Philip North is the Executive Director of the largest abortion provider in Barbados.
Although a Nation News article identifies BLP candidate George Griffith as a “social worker” and the executive director of the “Barbados Family Association”, Griffith is, in fact, in charge of the “Barbados Family Planning Association” (BFPA).
According to a medical professional who assisted with this article, the Barbados Family Planning Association is the largest provider and facilitator of abortions in Barbados, and is closely aligned with the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).
Should It Matter That BLP Candidate Griffith Is Part Of The Abortion Industry?
A better question would probably be “Will Griffith’s employment matter to voters in St. Philip North?”
Since the formal legalization of abortion in 1983, so many of us have been touched by abortion ourselves – or know someone close to us who has. Despite the now relatively commonplace nature of abortion in Barbados and the euphemisms proffered by industry advocates to normalize and conceal what really happens during an abortion – nothing can change the heavy emotional price that each one of us has paid.
…And many continue to pay that price for years after. Easier to forgive others than ourselves sometimes.
Only the final count on election day might tell us whether voters are too emotionally invested or torn by abortion to elect BLP candidate George Griffith. Even Griffith’s name on the ballot once again makes abortion a political issue during a campaign, but his employment is obviously not considered to be a major liability by the BLP.
