The aftermath of the vote on the abortion bill in the Dáil has left many pro-life people feeling defeated in Ireland, but the Pro Life Campaign hopes to rally the Irish people in advance of the next abortion battles.
Everyone involved in the Pro Life Campaign and the millions of Irish pro-life people it represents hoped Ireland would continue her world-leading protection of unborn children but they were disappointed and dismayed when the Dáil, following a directive by Taoiseach Enda Kenny to vote for the measure, opened the door to legalized abortion.
Ireland must decide this fundamental question: Is this abortion bill the government passed the beginning of the end of protection for unborn babies from abortion? Or will it be the end of the beginning of the efforts to repeal Ireland’s pro-life protection.
If the expected attendance at the Pro Life Campaign event is any measure, the Irish people are not happy with the direction the government took on abortion. With more than 400 people signing up, the Pro Life Campaign had to seek a larger venue — and it moved the conference to the well-known RDS hall where it can accommodate 500-600 people or more.
“The recent passage into law of the abortion bill is a genuine tragedy for our country. For the first time in our history, it is now legal to deliberately target the life of an innocent human being,” the Pro Life Campaign said. “The Government may well think as a result that the pro-life movement is disillusioned and will fade away. But as the recent pro-life vigils and rallies showed, that’s simply not going to happen.”
“As the Government turns its attention to other business, we’re just getting started! With renewed commitment and hope, together, we must devote our energies to the repeal of this unjust law, which is life ending not life saving,” it said.
The Pro Life Campaign’s National Conference will take place in the RDS Concert Hall, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 on Saturday, 12th October from 1.30-4.30pm and is an ideal opportunity for the pro-life people of Ireland to renew their commitment to this noble cause.
The excellent line up of speakers include: Hilary Ní Lorcáin, whose moving story of the life of her baby daughter featured in the Irish Independent, Caroline Simons of Pro Life Campaign and Adele Best of Women Hurt. Members of the Oireachtas who courageously broke the party whip to vote against abortion will also be in attendance.
