On the 25th May 2018, Ireland voted to remove the right to life of the unborn from the Irish Constitution, opening up the way to legislate for widespread abortion in Ireland for the first time. 66% of those who voted on the abortion referendum voted to REPEAL the Right to life clause. Over one million people did not vote in the abortion referendum.
Each year, Prolife groups around the country hold memorials to mark the tragedy that is abortion. According to www.irishabortionclock.com, over 15,000 abortions have taken place since the legislation for widespread abortion was introduced on 1st January 2019.
One group based in County Waterford, Deise For Life, held touching memorials in Dungarvan, An Rinn, Lismore and Kilmacthomas for those who have lost their lives to abortion and for their parents who were faced with a heartbreaking choice of aborting their baby.
As a wreath was laid at the foot of the Irish Proclamation monument at the Town Park, Dungarvan, Co Waterford, the Chairperson for Deise For Life said “we remember all those who have lost their lives since REPEAL. These people will not have a chance to experience life, they will not have the chance to feel the sunshine we feel on our faces today, they will not have the chance to play for their local parish GAA team, they won’t have the chance to meet their mum or dad, brothers or sisters and they won’t have the chance to experience 80 plus years of living with all life’s up and downs, challenges and joys.
We set the blame squarely at the feet of our politicians who continue to refuse to introduce pro-family policies in Ireland. Instead we see politicians calling for even more abortions. We see politicians creating a housing crisis as a way to control our population, causing many to see abortion as the only choice.”
