Pro-life supporters in Ireland have taken to social media to respond to a mural supporting abortion which was painted on the front wall of the Project Arts Centre in Dublin.

The original mural consisted of a red heart with the slogan “Repeal the 8th” inside. As regular readers of LifeNews will be aware, this slogan refers to the 8th Amendment of the Irish Constitution which is the last remaining legal protection for unborn children in Irish law. As such, it is a beacon of international human rights protection and is constant targeted by those who want to see abortion introduced to Ireland.

The mural pushing abortion was seen as in poor taste by many due to the fact that it was based around¬† the image of a heart. The heart of an unborn baby starts beating at 3 weeks in the womb, so the baby’s heart is already beating when most abortions take place.

This is the basis of the new mural being spread by pro-life supporters, which uses the image of a heart too. This time the slogan reads “Abortion stops a beating heart”. It’s hoped that this will help to spread awareness about the development of the unborn child in the womb.

Prolife campaigners in Ireland are asking supporters throughout the world to retweet this image on Twitter and share it on other social media to help focus the public’s mind on the reality of abortion and the fact that all the slogans and murals in the world cannot change the fact that abortion ends a human life.
