International Advocacy

The Pro Life campaign has defended Ireland’s constitutional protection for unborn children at the highest level of European and International politics. We regularly engage with international political institutions to advocate on issues related to the right to lie.

Some of the advocacy in recency years has included attending and making representations at the following events:
