While the rest of the country battles to save lives in the COVID-19 crisis, Sinn Feín and left-wing TDs have launched a sneak attack to widen even further Ireland's abortion laws.

They are seeking amendments to the Emergency Measures legislation which would: 

  • allow nurses to prescribe the abortion pill 
  • allow medical practitioners to provide the pill by post without actually seeing the pregnant women in person 
  • it has also been suggested that the three day 'waiting period', which might give pregnant women time for reflection or to seek life-affirming support, be suspended. 

It is both ghoulish and deplorable that this is being proposed while the country is pre-occupied and concerned with the Coronavirus crisis. Left-wing TDs such as Bríd Smith and Paul Murphy are pushing these life-ending measure with Eoin Ó Broin of Sinn Féín and Mick Barry of Solidarity at a time when everyone else is trying to save lives. 

We urge you to contact your TDs TODAY to ensure that these proposals are rejected during the debates.
