Rhona Mahony shamefully targets babies with a disability in abortion call - A friend of mine attended Holles Street maternity hospital where she gave birth to a beautiful little girl with a life-limiting condition. The baby girl knew nothing but love until she passed away in her mother’s arms just hours later. My friend said Rhona Mahony was her doctor at that time, and she felt that Dr Mahony didn’t seem to understand that this little girl was precious and valued and loved in exactly the same way as every other child, even if her disability was so severe that her life was very short. She also said that Dr Mahony had suggested abortion to her when her baby girl was first diagnosed as being so seriously ill. A significant number of other parents whose babies were diagnosed with life-limiting conditions have told me similar stories about doctors in Irish maternity hospitals. I wonder why that is? Why do some doctors go above and beyond to show empathy and understanding to parents in these situations, while others seem to push parents towards abortion.

Protesting the Minister for Children who believes some children can be killed - Last week, Katherine Zappone, a woman who is meant to be the Minister for Children, sparked a storm of criticism when she give a strident speech in favour of legalising abortion in demand. Zappone demanded that it was time to stop granting equal rights to preborn babies and called for abortion to be legalised. She had previously taken part in the ‘March for Choice’ last September which called for abortion to be available without restriction. Some of the sharpest criticism in online forums came from those who saw the inherent contradiction in a Minister who had taken an oath to uphold the Constitution now attacking the rights of preborn children whose right to life is enshrined in the same Constitution. Niamh Uí Bhriain of the Life Institute said that Zappone had tarnished the office of the Minister for Children, and that it was reprehensible for a government minister to argue in favour of the right to kill children before they were born. Up to 30 pro-life activists pr

Save the 8th Roadshow sees ‘significant increase’ in public engagement - Youth Defence’s major national Save The 8th Roadshow has seen a significant increase in public engagement, with activists reporting increased interest from the public in discussing the issues now that a referendum seems certain next year. “We’re seeing the number of discussions and information shared doubling in some places, and, based on the materials given out, overall the engagement is up more than 60% this year, “ said Íde of YD. “People are saying they want the facts and they want to ask questions because they feel a referendum is coming and they want to be informed before they vote. As always, there’s a huge interest in the reality of abortion, because that’s something that people don’t see very often, and they are shocked to see that even at 8 or 10 weeks, this is undeniably a baby whose life has been so tragically ended,” she said. “We’re also seeing that people are more aware now of the powerful personal stories from families whose babies had life-limiting co

SICK: Abortion provider hums ‘ain’t no stopping us now’ after doctors vote in Britain - One of Britain’s most well-known abortion providers has provoked anger by saying she is so delighted with a British Medical Association’s vote to completely decriminalise abortion that she can’t stop humming the 1970s disco classic Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now, the Daily Mail has reported. The paper reports : Ann Furedi, chief executive of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), one of the country’s biggest abortion providers, made her comments in an online magazine. And in a separate BPAS report, she said abortion should be regarded as no more than another form of birth control. But psychologist Dr Michael Scott called the comments ‘deplorable’. He added: ‘When it comes to bad taste, this is unsurpassed.’ Crossbench peer Lord Alton added: ‘Every abortion is a tragedy.’ Furedi has previously supported gendercide - aborting babies because they are girls – and has spoken at Abortion Rights Campaign events in Ireland. In Britain one in every 5 babies is killed b

Further fall in abortion numbers welcomed as evidence that the 8th is a life-saving measure - The Life Institute has welcomed a further fall in the number of Irish women travelling to Britain for abortion, as figures released by the British Department of Health showed those figures declining again - from 3,451 in 2015 to 3,265 in 2016. Niamh Uí Bhriain said that it was obvious that better support and a more open and compassionate approach to unexpected pregnancies enabled women to see through the fear and panic which most often leads to abortion, while new technologies and social media had also put the humanity of the baby beyond doubt. “Every reasonable person, and every person of goodwill, should welcome a fall in the number of abortions, so this is good news,” said Ms Uí Bhriain. “It also underlines the importance of the 8th amendment as a life-saving measure which has led to Ireland offering a better answer than abortion to women in crisis, and that’s something Irish people should be proud of.” “The figures released today show that, in Britain, the number of abo

Like Big Tobacco and smoking, research on women’s safety from abortion pill pushers cannot be trusted - The Life Institute has said that the media is failing to question the obvious biases and flaws in a new study, which was funded and researched by abortion campaigners and abortionists, and which claims that using abortion pills without medical supervision is safe and effective. Spokeswoman Niamh Uí Bhriain said that it was entirely ludicrous to treat research funded by the abortion industry as unbiased, reliable or trustworthy. “This is like expecting honesty and transparency from Big Tobacco on the effects of smoking. This study http://www.bmj.com/content/357/bmj.j2011 was funded by a major abortion supporter, the Society of Family Planning, and the research data was provided by the actual abortion pill providers. Three of the four authors of the study work with Women on Web who send illegal abortion pills to desperate women rather than helping them to have their babies.” “It is ludicrous to expect abortion pill pushers to be in any way objective as to the safety or other

The UN and abortion support taken to task - Niamh Uí Bhriain had a great letter in the Irish Times this week, calling out the UN’s support for abortion and asking why the same commentators who were slamming Saudi Arabia’s appointment to a UN women’s rights committee wouldn’t now admit the UN was a farce. Read it here http://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/letters/the-un-and-the-eighth-amendment-1.3077081 or below. Great closing line! "Sir, – We have been hearing from abortion campaigners that Ireland must legalise abortion because the United Nations Human Rights Committee has ordained it should be so. Just last February, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women criticised the pro-life Eighth Amendment, a clause inserted by the people into the Constitution in a free and fair referendum, because it restricted abortion. Now we’re hearing a furore, mostly from the same quarter, because Saudi Arabia, a kingdom where women are not even permitted to travel, marry or drive without male permission

NYT: Give women, especially poorer women, real choices instead of abortion - The New York Times is not usually known for giving a hearing to a pro-life point of view so it was refreshing to see an insightful and intelligent article slamming the political view that says abortion is especially needed for poorer women. As the author writes: “It’s also patronizing, and patently dishonest. Of course unplanned pregnancy presents challenges. But it doesn’t have to lead to economic failure. Abortion is society’s easy way out — its way of avoiding grappling with the fundamental injustices driving women to abortion clinics.” Read the article here on the NYT site or below. The Problem With Linking Abortion and Economics By LORI SZALAMAY, May 9 2017 IN recent days, Senator Bernie Sanders has come under fire for appearing at a campaign stop with Heath Mello, a mayoral candidate in Omaha who voted for anti-abortion legislation as a Nebraska state senator. Mr. Sanders said he supported Mr. Mello’s progressive economic positions, but critics said abortion and eco

Citizens Assembly expected to push abortion - This weekend the flawed and biased Citizens Assembly is expected to deliver a preordained outcome and recommend the repeal of the right to life of preborn children. It is now a matter of record that the organisers of the Assembly brought abortionists to masquerade as 'impartial' experts so that they could push for a change to Ireland's abortion laws, and the whole thing was largely a farce designed to push repeal of the pro-life amendment. At this time, it is worth reading the submission made by the Life Institute to the Assembly which offers compelling evidence as the humanity of the baby and why mothers and babies need better than abortion.
