What's this about?

Rally for Life 2022
Dublin City Centre

City Centre: Dublin : 2pm : 2 July 2022

The RALLY for LIFE IS BACK! After two years of Covid lockdowns, the BIGGEST pro-life event of the year is back in-person, in Dublin, where thousands will gather to Stand for Life. 


You've been amazing for keeping the pro-life message alive with local rallies and events in 2020 and 2021, but we can already feel the energy building for the most EXCITING pro-life event of the year: the Rally for Life. 

Rally for Life 2022 will meet at 2pm on Saturday July 2nd at the Garden of Remembrance on Parnell Square in Dublin city centre. 

The Rally theme for 2022 is to urge the nation to Rethink Abortion 

A vitally important year 

As you know, the first review of the Abortion Act is taking place this year and the Rally is a key action in reminding the government and the public of the horrific outcomes of the abortion legislation.

Join us to be a voice for the 6,500 babies being killed by abortion every year. For the mothers brutalised by a system that tells them to flush the bodies of their aborted babies down the toilet. 

Stand for Life - for the families of babies with disabilities who are being pressured to abort their beautiful children. For the pro-life doctors and nurses fighting for conscience rights. To make the truth known about horrific late-term abortions. 

To demand that the 3 day period of reflection before abortion, which saved almost 900 babies in a year is retained.  

To wake the conscience of a nation and urge them to Rethink Abortion.

But its also a day for the national pro-life movement to be re-energised and strengthened by coming together for Life! Together we will rebuild this broken culture. 

See you there!

Dr Dermot Kearney

Dr Dermot Kearney won a significant victory this year for his life-saving work in providing Abortion Pill Reversal when he beat an orchestrated campaign to stop him helping women and babies. 

Dr Kearney is a Irish cardiologist living in Britain, and has helped to save 32 babies from abortion by giving their mothers a REAL choice through reversing the effects of the abortion pill. 

Women said he “became a saviour to them and their babies” and described him as a "lifesaver".  One woman said of him: “to find there was such kindness in the world was phenomenal. It felt so selfless I cried”.

“Every baby is precious and deserves all our love”.

Leaflets at the Rally


The All Ireland Rally for Life is the largest annual national pro-life event in Ireland which seeks to protect the right to life of every person. It does not espouse any other cause or platform and the organisers ask all participants to participate in a spirit of generosity to unborn children and women with unexpected pregnancies. 

We ask all those in attendance to support the aim and message of the day. With that in mind, we ask that materials and leaflets pertaining to other causes, events or organisations are not distributed on the day.
