Ireland goes to the polls tomorrow in the Local and European elections and if the campaign has shown pro-life voters one thing, it’s that we need more than ever to hold politicians accountable for the decisions they make on our behalf. The last few months have shown us beyond any doubt that they are only too happy to forget the fall-out if we’ll let them.
The Pro Life Campaign has said that it is indefensible the way some members of the Irish Parliament are publicly supporting a campaign by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), which is being promoted by the Irish Family Planning Association (IFPA) given that the campaign advocates abortion without any restrictions whatsoever.
Hot on the heels of the recent successful National Vigil For Life, the Pro Life Campaign is encouraging its supporters to use their vote wisely in Ireland's upcoming Local and European elections.
The Fine Gael party promised voters they would not legalise abortion. They broke that promise. The pro-life movement gave a commitment not to sit back and accept the new law. The National Vigil for Life on 3rd May is a clear sign that we will not be breaking our promise.
Once again, a bereaved family is drawing attention to the failures of the Irish government to provide proper health care and medical attention to families who discover that their unborn babies are suffering from life-limiting conditions.
The Pro Life Campaign has released a new video with the aim of promoting its upcoming National Vigil for Life which is due to take place on May 3rd in Dublin's city centre. With the Local and European elections due to take place at the end of May, there could not be a better time to remind the Government that abortion remains very much on the Irish political agenda.
