How much is a smile worth?

The charity SmileTrain has been advertising extensively of late in publications as diverse as The Week, English Heritage and the Catholic Herald.

In the developed world, babies with the slightest hint of cleft palate are routinely aborted. I therefore felt compelled to support the work of this charity and have sent a donation. £175 covers the cost of surgery to one child but you can donate any amount you like. I daresay their advertising costs are considerable but how else are they to raise funds.

I generally make enquiries of charities about their pro-life position and have been assured that none of their funds goes to pre-natal testing or any other such procedure that would lead to abortion.

Find them here.
