Save the 8th

placard

My home-made placard

There’s going to be a referendum in Ireland soon.  The pro-choice lobby wants Ireland to repeal the 8th Amendment to its Constitution, thereby removing the right to life of the unborn child.  I’m hoping to attend a pro-life rally in Dublin on Saturday.  One of the speakers will be Karen Gaffney.  If this amazing woman had been born in Britain in the current pro-choice climate she would have only had a 10% chance of escaping death by abortion.  If her mother was Icelandic she wouldn’t have been born at all.  She has Down Syndrome.  If you want to find out more try here or here.

Yes, I know my placard is wonky. 😦 That’s because sticky-back plastic is my nemesis.  I borrowed the board and most of the graphics from the Guadalupe Centre in Knock which provides pro-life resources through Human Life International.

Update: If you’d like to sign a petition calling for the referendum to be scrapped, click here.
