Dublin Fingal (North) – Use Your Vote to Protect Human Life

We asked all candidates to supply a Yes or No answer to the following question:

If elected, will you oppose any attempt to repeal the 8th Amendment or undermine legal protection for the unborn child?

This page will be updated daily between now and Election Day with answers from candidates as we receive them.

The voting record of TDs and Senators on the 2013 abortion legislation is also featured below.

The following parties have taken a strong stance on repealing the 8th Amendment and should not receive the pro-life vote:

Labour

Sinn Fein

People Before Profit

Anti-Austerity Alliance

Green Party

The Eighth Amendment is the last remaining constitutional protection for the unborn child in Ireland. Pro-Life people should only vote for candidates who are committed to keeping the 8th Amendment.
