Life Equality – Protecting Ireland’s Eighth Amendment

Life Equality – Protecting Ireland’s Eighth Amendment

The Eighth Amendment to the Constitution is Ireland’s original Life Equality Amendment.   Notwithstanding the abortion legislation of 2013, the Eighth Amendment provides the last remaining protection for the unborn child in Ireland and must be robustly defended.


Each human being regardless of age, gender, disability, race, status in society, possesses a profound, inherent, equal and irreplaceable value and dignity.  Abortion advocates want the unborn child to be an exception to this rule. To do this they resort to the ploy of denying the humanity of the unborn.

The sign of a truly civilised society, however, is one that welcomes everyone in life and protects everyone in its laws.
