I have been out canvassing for the Life Institute over the last couple of months. As I was speaking with people on our door to door canvass a common argument is why should women have to travel to England for an abortion. My answer to that is there should not be abortion there either.
1. Pro-life Unity for the Life Canvass The long-sought for unity for the pro-life movement took a huge step forward as most of the major pro-life organisations have come together to make sure that the Life Canvass has the biggest impact possible to Save the 8th. This was fantastic news for the Life Canvass, as another leading national pro-life organisation, Family & Life, formally come on board with Life Institute, Youth Defence and more than 30 local pro-life organisations, to make this the biggest pro-life door-to-door initiative ever seen in Ireland.
I was struck by an article in The Avondhu by Donal O’Keeffe (30.05.17), ‘If abortion really is murder, why no “pro-life” pickets at ports and airports’. I believe it conveyed a rather poor and misleading impression of pro-life people and while I appreciate it’s an opinion piece, it deserves a right of reply.
