According to a RTE report, after just four months of legalised abortion, campaigners are already calling to have the 12-week limit pushed back - and the three-day waiting period scrapped. They estimate at least 10,000 Irish abortions every year under the new law.
The Life Institute has called on the Coroner at the inquest into the death of Savita Halappanavar to hear from neutral expert obstetric witnesses on the impact of Irish law on necessary terminations of pregnancy, in order to ensure a balanced view is heard.
My name is Niamh Uí Bhriain, and I’m representing the Save the 8th campaign here today. Thank you for coming. Save the 8th has commenced its efforts to defeat the referendum to legalise abortion with a major billboard campaign which is being erected nationwide. These ‘Reality of Repeal’ billboards are being launched here this morning, Tuesday, at 11am, at Buswells Hotel, Dublin 2.
Leaders in the so-called “repeal movement” must stand up and condemn the orgy of abuse directed at a young American visitor who was approved to curate the @Ireland twitter account, Savethe8th has said. The @Ireland account is a twitter account that is curated each week by a different guest.
Save the 8th, the campaign against the repeal of the 8th amendment, has welcomed a finding by TheJournal.ie that its billboard campaign highlighting the impact of abortion on unborn children with Downs Syndrome is “correct.”
"This announcement from the Marie Stopes clinic, that they are seeking sites in Dublin to use as abortion clinics should the 8th Amendment be repealed, is shocking and should send shivers down the spine of undecided voters."
