Pro-life activists are today staging witnesses outside Irish embassies in London and Washington DC in support of the Irish people who are under threat of abortion legislation being undemocratically foisted on them.
Ireland's leading pro-life activists have reported that in a weekend of abortion protests following a ruling of the European Court of Human Rights, pro-life protestors have out numbered abortion supporters by ten to one. The protests were sparked by the Court's ruling in the ABC case which sought to overturn Ireland's ban on abortion.
A mobile billboard carrying a striking #AbortionDiscriminates message has been touring Dublin today as part of a campaign to build awareness by the pro-life group Youth Defence, who say that up to 90% of babies with a disability, including Down Syndrome, are now being aborted in other jurisdictions.
Pro-life groups say that they will "stand 100%" behind founder of Precious Life Bernadette Smyth who they say was "unfairly sentenced today for reaching out to women in crisis at a Belfast abortion referral centre: an action abortion campaigners have tried to dress up as harassment, by claiming that Ms Smyth broke the law by laughing or by being present at the door of the clinic."
Youth Defence has called on an Taoiseach Enda Kenny to immediately reconsider the repeal of last year's abortion legislation, as shocking reports of a baby being deliberately birthed prematurely at 25 weeks show the new law to be "unworkable and barbaric".
The pro-life group Youth Defence has slammed the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) for "gross interference" in Ireland's affairs, after the abortion providers ran an advert in the Irish Times pushing for abortion to be made legal in Ireland.
