Since coming into effect 55 years ago in 1967, the British abortion law has seen 10,135,618 babies aborted. This is a harrowing example of the incredible scale of abortion’s impact on British society. The abortion statistics released for the year 2021 showed the highest abortion rate ever on record, with a total of 214,869 in that year alone. Each of these lives lost across 55 years should be mourned and remembered. It should be remembered that thousands of these lives lost were Irish babies.
In Ireland, in just four years of legal abortion, we have already seen nearly 30,000 babies aborted. In 2022, there were 8,500 abortions – the highest number on record and a considerable jump of 2,000 additional abortions from 2021. It means that for every seven babies born last year in Ireland, one was aborted. We’ve seen the ravaging social impact of abortion in Britain, and unfortunately Ireland is now treading the same destructive path.
