The Pro Life Campaign has accused Senator Catherine Noone of making “highly misleading” statements about how the Oireachtas Committee on abortion ended up so slanted against the pro-life position. At the weekend, committee Chairperson Senator Noone said the committee was having difficulty finding pro-life experts to present as witnesses.
The Pro Life Campaign in Ireland has said that with most of the focus of the abortion debate on repeal of the country’s last remaining constitutional for unborn babies, the 8th Amendment, the public “are being deprived of the opportunity to consider what precisely legalised abortion would involve.” The group was commenting following the release of new Amárach research showing that most of the public are totally unaware of basic facts regarding what legalised abortion has led to in countries like our nearest neighbour, England.
The Pro Life Campaign has said there is no real difference between “partial” or “full” repeal of the 8th Amendment since both options would strip unborn babies of all meaningful protections under the law.
Today marks the 34th anniversary of the passage of the 8th Amendment.

The impartiality of the Citizens’ Assembly which was set up to discuss abortion in Ireland has been dealt a further blow by the news that the Chief Executive Officer of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), Ann Furedi, is so happy that the British Medical Association recently voted to support the decriminalisation of abortion that she can’t stop humming the 1970s disco song “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now”.
The campaign to liberalise abortion took a further step forward today with the first sitting of the Government’s new Committee which is due to look at the recommendations by the recent Citizens’ Assembly.
The Pro Life Campaign has welcomed a Report showing that the number of women travelling from Ireland to England and Wales for abortions has decreased for the fifteenth consecutive year.
