We need to invest more in crisis pregnancies

Note the headlines side-by-side on the editorial page ( Irish Examiner, September 22). “Abortion law is too strict, say farmers” and “We need to spend more money giving all children a better start”. It left me confused.

Perhaps the “all” should have been omitted from the second heading or else “lucky enough to be born” should have been inserted after the word “children”.
