On Wednesday, 27th September, during the second stage of the Exclusion Zones bill, 111 TDs voted to criminalise pro-life prayer, a shameful attempt to censor and silence pro-lifers and deny women real support in pregnancy.
A leading pro-life group has said the fact that a bill legalising abortion on demand to 6 months was supported by a narrow majority of TDs shows the Dáil is out of touch with the people on this issue.
Minister Stephen Donnelly been accused of proposing to “jail people for silent prayer” by introducing a law targeting pro-life activists that would “be like dragging Ireland back to the time of the penal laws”
Gript can reveal that the claim made by Minister Stephen Donnelly - and repeated on Drivetime - that 14% or 1 in 7 women had experienced “protest” and “intimidation” while seeking abortion is not confirmed by any rigorous research, but is based on an online survey by the Abortion Rights Campaign.
Pro-Life America is turning heads across the globe with news breaking barriers such as the leak showing the Supreme Court is set to overturn Roe v. Wade - and of course following shortly after the newly announced Oklahoma Bill which states that it will protect human life all the way up to the moment of conception.
The National Women’s Council (NWCI), which has been sharply criticised in the past week for excluding swathes of women with differing views, has met with Ministers and Department Officials at least one hundred and sixty times over the past two years, it has been revealed.
An attempt to hijack the UK Government’s flagship Health and Care Bill with an extreme abortion proposal has failed, in a significant pro-life victory, with Diana Johnson MP’s amendment (NC50) not going to a vote.
