Abortion Bill Passes in Ireland, But the Fight’s Not Nearly Over — Keep Praying!

All Ireland Rally For Life 2013

The bill that could throw open the doors for the abortion cartel in abortion-free Ireland was passed by the Dail (lower house) early Friday morning by a vote of 127 to 31.  It will now move onto the Senead (upper house) and must be signed by President Michael D. Higgins.

The passage of this bill truly marks a dark day in humanity, as Ireland is one of the only nations left in the world that still treats a mother and her preborn child as equal human beings.  However, all is not lost.  The bill could still be declared unconstitutional, and will certainly not go unchallenged by the courageous Irish men and women who have been working non-stop to energize the nation and protect the life of every preborn child from this deception-driven abortion bill.

Just last Saturday, the people of Ireland held the largest pro-life rally in their nation’s history, with up to 60,000 in attendance — all demanding that this bill be put to a referendum, and pledging to “work night and day to build an alternative to political parties who broke their promises and betrayed their principles.”

During the Rally, Niamh Uí Bhriain of the Life Institute addressed Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny directly, saying: “…the people will be heard. 100,000 people have already signed the pro-life pledge, 100,000 will seek to build a new political alternative, 100,000 will remember Taoiseach, that if you ram through this law, you are the abortion Taoiseach and Fine Gael is the abortion party, and they will seek an alternative which protects both mother and baby. “

CEC For Life has worked very closely with Irish pro-life organizations like Youth Defence, The Life Institute, and Precious Life for many years.  We know the passion and determination that these pro-life warriors exhibit when the life of the preborn are threatened — especially by their own government.  We encourage each of you to join us in prayer (pray that this bill is declared unconstitutional!) and, in doing so, stand strong with our Irish brothers and sisters,  as this battle rages on.
