As many as 100,000 people attended a rally in Dublin to show their support to the continued right to life of the unborn in Ireland, organizers say.
According to the “Save the 8th” campaign, the March 10 All Ireland Rally for Life attracted the biggest crowd ever to express their wishes on the Irish abortion question. The Eighth Amendment to the Irish constitution guarantees the right-to-life of the unborn child. The pro-abortion Irish government will be holding a referendum in late May in the hope of abolishing the amendment.
Spokeswoman Niamh Uí Bhriain said, via a press release, that the government’s abortion proposal had woken a “sleeping giant” and the campaign to save Ireland from abortion now expected “a surge of volunteers” to work for a “No” vote in the referendum.
“These huge numbers are a rising of the people against the media and political elites and against the powerful international abortion industry who have poured millions into a campaign attacking our pro-life laws. Ireland is at a defining point in our history, and we are challenging the people to reject the abortion industry and to demand a better answer for mothers and babies,” she stated. “Abortion has no place in a compassionate and progressive society.”
