07.03.18: Supreme Court decision makes clear that without Eighth Amendment unborn babies would have no protection – Professor Binchy


The Pro Life Campaign has said this morning’s Supreme Court ruling that no Constitutional protection for unborn babies exists outside of Article 40.3.3 (Eighth Amendment) shows the importance of keeping this life-saving provision in the Constitution.

Commenting immediately after the Court ruling, Pro Life Campaign legal adviser, Professor William Binchy said:

“The Supreme Court’s judgment makes it all the more necessary to oppose the Government’s proposal to introduce abortion on demand. The Court has made it clear that unborn babies, up to birth, would have no constitutional protection against the legislation that the Government intends to introduce.”
