Abortion will come to be seen as the greatest human rights abuse in history By Gavin Boyne When I think back to the day the Eighth Amendment was repealed, I find it hard not to recall the scenes in Dublin Castle when the result was announced. As someone who was nearly aborted and who owes …Continue reading "The most extreme pro-abortion people have taken charge"
By Niamh Uí Bhriain Editor’s note. The 8th amendment was the pro-life amendment to the Irish Constitution that was removed in May 2018 in a referendum. Last week, I traveled to Cork to meet with pro-life leaders in Munster and we talked, amongst other things, about renewing and rebuilding our culture, about the hope provided …Continue reading "Last week I was reminded of the resilience, hope and courage of the Irish pro-life movement"
By Michael Cook Only doctors who are willing to perform abortions will be considered for two consultant posts at Dublin’s National Maternity Hospital (NMH). The hospital is advertising for a consultant anesthetist and a consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology.

By Dave Andrusko Strangely enough, when juxtiposed, the two items reminded me of the aphorism, “One man’s meat is another man’s poison.” Or maybe not so odd. The headline for a story in today’s Irish Times reads Photographs of 2018: ‘Irish Times’ photographers’ best shotsFrom Ann Lovett’s former boyfriend to the Eighth Amendment abortion referendum. …Continue reading "Best Irish Times’ photos of 2018 continue the lie that protective abortion laws caused the death of Savita Halappanavar"

By Dave Andrusko The vise continues to close tighter around the throats of unborn children in Ireland. Once among the most protective countries in the world, the Republic of Ireland seems bent on mimicking the worst pro-abortion policies found anywhere.

By Katie Franklin Seven months after Irish voters overwhelmingly chose to repeal the country’s long-standing prohibition on abortion, Parliament is on the verge of legalizing the fatal practice by January 1. Rife with controversial mandates, the bill would make abortion available through [at least]12 weeks of pregnancy and force pro-life citizens who disagree with the …Continue reading "Ireland to Force Pro-life Pregnancy Centers and Doctors to Promote and Refer for Abortion"
By Nancy Valko I have always been proud of my Irish heritage so I was especially shocked when a voter referendum in Ireland in May 2018 overwhelmingly approved removing Ireland’s long-standing, constitutional protections for unborn babies and left the details up to the Irish government. Before this, Ireland’s Eighth Amendment protected both unborn babies and …Continue reading "Support the Fighting Irish Doctors and Nurses"
