Before Christmas, thanks to your help, the Life Institute began a campaign that urges people to contact their TDs and demand that the 3-day waiting period be retained. Because of your support, we were able to place these adverts in newspapers across the country.
After promises that abortion would only be made legal in Ireland under “strict guidelines”, including a 3-day period of reflection, abortion campaigners are now trying to scrap the 3-day waiting period, despite figures suggesting that, on average, 1,000 women have changed their mind on abortion every year due to this legislation.
Building on our billboards and social media campaigns, these newspapers adverts (see below) highlight the importance of the 3-day period of reflection - and the promises made by Simon Coveney and Leo Varadkar. With abortion rates rising in Ireland, it is important that all is done to ensure that women are given the chance to choose life for their baby.
“The 3-day wait means 1,000 fewer abortions” the advert headlines. “Help women keep their baby.”
“Like many people, you may be shocked at the huge rise in abortion in Ireland. 6,666 in the first year alone,” it begins. “In 2018, Tánaiste Simon Coveney promised voters that abortion would only be legal under "strict guidelines" including a 3-day period of reflection for a woman seeking abortion.”
“In fact, information released to Carol Nolan TD shows that up to 1,000 women every year change their mind in those 3 days. Women need that time to think.”
“But, now abortion campaigners want to SCRAP the 3-day wait. Why would we scrap a law that might HELP women keep their baby?”
“Call you TD now and tell them they must keep the 3-day wait. No one wants 1,000 more abortions”.
