The Pro Life Campaign (PLC) has said it will strongly oppose any attempts to give effect to the recommendations contained in the report of the three-year review of the abortion law, scheduled for release tomorrow.
“The recommendations, not surprisingly, are being presented as considered and reasonable by Minister Stephen Donnelly and others but the truth is they are very extreme proposals and the result of a deeply flawed and one sided process.
“The Government should focus on looking for ways to reduce Ireland’s soaring abortion rate rather than looking at scrapping the three-day reflection period before an abortion happens or considering fully decriminalising abortion effectively permitting it up to nine months.
The Pro Life Campaign is organising a March For Life in Dublin next Monday, 1st May in response to the recommendations in the report. The event will commence at St. Stephen’s Green South at 2pm.
