The annual Pro-Life Student Summit organised by Students for Life took place last weekend in Glencomeragh Co Tipperary. The weekend residential event was attended by third level students from across Ireland and featured lots of workshops and talks on effective ways to communicate the pro-life message, delivered by guest speakers from home and abroad.
Among the guest contributors at this year’s summit were Cork based medic Dr Brendan Crowley and Jill Callanan from Community Connect. Amrita Kaur from England also addressed the students and told her story about taking the abortion pill in 2021 and how she immediately regretted the decision. She sought help from the abortion provider to reverse the effect of the pill but they did nothing to help her situation. She then went online to look for a solution and found out about Abortion Pill Reversal treatment. She was put in touch with Irish born Dr Dermot Kearney who assisted her and today she’s overjoyed to have her beautiful one year old daughter Ahri-Storm in her life.
The main aim of the summit is to equip students with facts on the pro-life issue and the skills to speak to their peers about this human rights issue. As well as the talks and intensive training features of the gathering, there was also plenty of time over the weekend for fun activities, including a hike in nearby Kilsheelan Woods.
Local TD Mattie McGrath also paid a visit to the weekend summit where he addressed attendees and encouraged them to become more actively involved in politics and to consider running for election to increase the representation of pro-life voices in public life and to effect positive changes in a pro-life direction.
Katie Fenton, one of the main organisers of the summit, said the weekend was a terrific success and a great opportunity for pro-life students from across the country to get to know one another and plan future pro-life initiatives together.
