VPC to Dublin City Council

Next Monday, Dublin City Council votes on Abortion – take one minute to send a ready-to-go E-card to your local Councillors

Dublin City Council will debate a motion next Monday, 7th September, calling for the repeal of the 8th Amendment.

Since its insertion into the Constitution in 1983, the 8th Amendment has ensured that pregnant women receive all necessary medical treatments in pregnancy and that the unborn child is legally protected. If the Amendment were repealed, it would strip away the last remaining legal protection for the unborn. It is not an exaggeration to say that tens of thousands of Irish people are alive today thanks to the 8th Amendment.

Every pro-life supporter should make their concerns known by calling on Dublin City Councillor to vote against next Monday’s motion.

Here is the text of the virtual postcard you will send:

Dear Councillor,I am asking you to vote against the motion at next Monday’s Dublin City Council meeting that calls for repeal of the 8th Amendment.

I respectfully make the point that there is nothing liberal or compassionate about the motion being put forward. If passed, all it would do is advance the campaign to strip the last remaining legal protection from the unborn child.

Ireland, without abortion, was a recognised world leader in safety for pregnant women, safer than countries like England where abortion is legal on demand. These are basic facts that sadly get side-lined in the present debate.

As the recent much publicised videos on Planned Parenthood in the US show, it is unspeakable what is being done in the name of ‘choice’ and ‘reproductive rights’. There is a tendency too in some media circles to blame the 8th Amendment for everything whenever abortion is in the news here. It is not an exaggeration, however, to say that tens of thousands of Irish people are alive today thanks, in one way or another, to the 8th Amendment. That’s a stunning reality that cannot be overlooked.

As you know, there are at least 20 homeless pregnant women sleeping rough in Dublin every night. Those desperately trying to help cannot get the necessary funds from the State to provide sheltered accommodation. I urge you and your Council colleagues to make this the priority instead of proceeding with next Monday’s destructive motion.

Yours sincerely,
