The Pro Life Campaign is a non-denominational human rights organisation, drawing its support from a cross-section of Irish society. The Campaign promotes pro-life education and defends human life at all stages, from conception to natural death. It also campaigns for resources to support and assist pregnant women and those in need of healing after abortion.
The Pro Life Campaign was established in 1992. The founding members were key members of the Pro Life Amendment Campaign which organised and campaigned successfully for the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution (Article 40.3.3) in 1983. The Amendment protects the right to life of the unborn child and ensures that women receive all necessary medical treatments when pregnant. It is regarded internationally as one of the key pro-life victories of the past 40 years.
