What's this about?

The annual All-Ireland rally for life which takes place on alternative dates in Belfast and Dublin. Dublins date is Saturday, 6th of July 2024

Dublin: Saturday: 6th July @ 1.30pm

Join thousands at the biggest and most EXCITING pro-life event of the year – the All-Ireland RALLY FOR LIFE – as pro-life people from across the country join together to Stand for Life. 

We’re marching to demand the government acts as the heartbreaking rise in abortions continues - 10,000 abortions in 2023 alone. We're joining together to demand they look at life-saving measures like support for women; extending the 3-day wait period; and a Heartbeat Bill. 

JOIN with people of all ages, with family and friends, to show the government and the Nation that we must STOP ABORTING OUR FUTURE - and love both mother and child.

Kaya Jones


Kaya has described in stark terms how she believes the music industry controls and abuses young women, including pressuring them into having an abortion. She also gives an important insight into how a culture which does not value human life, and sees unborn babies as disposable, leads to women having multiple abortions and then living with the sad and heart-breaking consequences. 

She has been outspoken about her past abortions, including being pressured into undergoing one while she was a former member of The Pussycat Dolls. Years later, she found faith in Jesus Christ and began sharing her story with the hope that it would change lives.

"If I could genuinely say, what I would hope for, is that women would hear my testimony and choose differently," Jones has said.

"But once you've crossed that line, you can do it again. And that's why women are susceptible to two and three abortions and even more," she said.

By sharing her story, Jones hopes it will inspire others to share their stories of abortion regret as well, including men who regret helping women get abortions.

"I can't tell you how many messages I get from men that are like, ‘Hi, I heard your story and I paid for one. And I really feel bad that I did that. I really feel bad that I pressured her into getting an abortion,’" she said. "The amount of men that have regret that I hear from is astounding. So I hope more men in the public eye can speak on this."

She also hopes her story serves as a strong warning to young women who find themselves in unwanted pregnancies.

The singer believes there needs to be more education given to women about the unintended consequences of abortion. She likened the warnings about cancer risks on packets of cigarettes to the kind of warning labels she thinks should come on abortion pills or at clinics.

After being "broken and bruised" by her past choices, Jones says her faith has helped her see a new version of herself. The now 38-year-old said her relationship with Jesus and prayer is what led her to come to terms with her abortions, although she insisted that you “never get over it”. 

The Canadian born singer-songwriter believes there is a need for society to take a hard look at the messages it promotes about beauty, fame, and success, and what it tells women about abortion.

The singer experienced an epiphany during a Pussycat Dolls performance, during which she says she spotted two little girls in the crowd watching her with a huge adoration. “At that moment, I was going through an abortion,” she recalled. “I’m losing my child in real time." She said that she was caught in a lie in that moment. "I was living in my worst self.” 

Kaya now says: “Children are a blessing from God,” she says. “I hope to one day be able to be a mom, I hope to be a wife and get to be able to share what I do believe is the greatest gift, and ultimately the greatest job you’ll ever have on this planet as a woman, to be a mother.” 

We urge you to make sure you don't miss the chance to hear Kaya's testimony and save the date for this year's Rally for Life.

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.
