Some great news for the Life Canvass, as another leading national pro-life organisation, Family & Life, have formally come on board to make this the biggest pro-life door-to-door initiative ever seen in Ireland.
Pro-life activists have said that they are gravely concerned about implications for a free and fair debate ahead of the expected abortion referendum after Gardai seized pro-life materials in Kilkenny City last Saturday. The Save the 8th pro-life roadshow was visiting the city on the last day of its extended tour, which had already been to 17 towns and cities throughout Ireland without incidence. However, just 10 minutes into the information event, Garda detectives arrived and threatened arrest if photographs of babies who had been aborted were not removed from display.
Our nationwide Save the 8th Roadshow received significant media attention this year, with local newspaper and radio covering the Roadshow in most towns and cities. You can read and listen to some of those media interviews below. Well done to all the pro-life volunteers who took part in media engagements over the last three weeks.
