The Pro Life Campaign has said the events organised by abortion group ROSA Ireland in Dublin today ignore the devastating effects of abortion for many women and are an attempt to rewrite what happened in the recent general election.
Commenting on today’s protest by ROSA, PLC spokesperson Cora Sherlock said:
“There will not be a single mention today by ROSA about the right to life of unborn children or the fact that many, many women suffer severe adverse mental health after-effects from abortion. The mantra about ‘repeal of the 8th Amendment’ side-steps this awful reality.
“The recent general election showed that demand for dismantling the 8th Amendment isn’t strong at all. But those campaigning for abortion are trying to rewrite what happened in the election. The truth is that when the abortion issue was raised on doorsteps it was overwhelmingly pro-life people raising it, not people looking for repeal of the 8th Amendment. ROSA and other groups insist on ignoring this fact just as they ignore the many thousands of people who are alive in Ireland today thanks to our Right to Life Amendment.”
