Organizers were amazed when 25,000 people attended a pro-life rally in Dublin on Saturday, including the Tyrone football team boss Mickey Harte.
The Vigil For Life event was called to highlight opposition to any change on abortion legislation as the Irish government considers reform.
Irish state broadcaster RTE reports that the organizers said the event was ‘intended as a means to express concern about and opposition to plans to legislate for abortion in certain circumstances.’
The Irish are one of the few Western hold-outs to the slaughter-an-innocent-child brigade. It seems they have no intention of changing this either. With an unexpectedly large turnout in Dublin the Irish people spoke up, informing their government that the people believe abortion is wrong. Whether the “representatives” listen to their voice is yet to be determined. However, it would be wise of them to seriously consider their votes on this legislation since the “pro-life” turnout was at a mere 200 demonstrators.
Western nations where abortion is…
Illegal in all cases: Holy See (Vatican City), Malta
Illegal except to save a mother’s life: Andorra, San Marino, and Monaco
All the above nations are Roman Catholic.
