A review of the abortion law is meant to be underway this autumn. The shocking outcomes of the abortion regime should urge the public and TDs to #RethinkAbortion.
REDUCE the skyrocketing abortion rate: 6,666 in 2019 - with a horrifying total of 13,243 in just two years. So much for abortion being 'rare'. 2,000 women sought support after abortion in 2020 - were they given a real choice?
STOP Late Term Abortions: A 2020 report* confirms late-term abortions are happening in Ireland - and doctors worry about being left "begging for help" for babies who survive abortion. We were told this would never happen. It must stop.
KEEP the 3-day waiting period: Figures released to Carol Nolan TD suggest almost 900 women changed their mind in those 3 days and did not continue with abortion. Most people want FEWER not MORE abortions.
NO Disability Abortion: Campaigners want to extend the law so that MORE babies with disabilities can be aborted. This is lethal discrimination and must be opposed.
STOP pressuring parents to abort: In the recent shocking NMH case, a baby was aborted after a misdiagnosis. This must not happen again.
A lot of people, including many who voted Yes, are horrified at these outcomes. The Abortion Review should urge many people to rethink the abortion regime and demand change. On Wednesday, 20th October, join the Rethink Abortion National Rally at Dáil Éireann.
JOIN US TO URGE TDS TO RETHINK ABORTION. BE A LIGHT FOR LIFE.
