Young doctor deserves mercy

Published 06/05/2015

To the powers-that-be: please have mercy on Dr Eireann Kerr. Which one of us at some time in our life has not needed mercy?

In the Bible, when a woman was to be stoned because of her guilt (as it was in the law of Moses), Jesus said unto the accusers: "He that is without sin cast the first stone." Being convicted by their own conscience, they left one by one.

I hope that your conscience convicts you and you show mercy to this young doctor and understand we are all mere mortals and all need a second chance.


Dromore, Co Down
