Just as we approach the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the ruling political party in Ireland is trying to erode legal protection for those Irish in the womb.
But this attempt to attack Ireland’s pro-life laws is not going unanswered. In fact, over 30,000 Irish rallied in support of keeping Ireland safe for the unborn.
Niamh Ui Bhriain, Director of the Ireland-based Life Institute said:
“This was one of the largest crowds ever seen in the history of Ireland for a public protest. And it shows the strength of conviction in the Irish people as they stand together to tell Enda Kenny that if he legalises abortion, each and every one at the vigil of the near will work against Fine Gael to make sure that everyone in the party knows they are the abortion party. And, if he legalises abortion, Fine Gael will be finished as a political party.”
Bravo, Ireland! Keep fighting for women and children!
