Culture War Hits Streets Of Ireland Ahead Of Landmark Abortion Referendum (VIDEO)

Between 60,000 – 80,000 people marched across Dublin on Saturday in the opening salvo of a campaign to defend the Irish Republic’s pro-life 8th Amendment, long since targeted by abortion advocates and international human rights organizations.

Described by Pope John Paul II as ‘Ireland Semper Fidelis’, or ‘Ireland Always Faithful’, the country is undoubtedly less Catholic today than when a pro-life constitutional amendment was approved by landslide popular vote in 1983.
Yet despite secularization, family remains at the heart of Irish society and there exists a strong pro-life movement which can mobilize impressive numbers.

Turnout, expected at around 50,000, was so large that the march was delayed in setting off from Parnell Square, taking two hours to reach its finishing point at Merrion Square, opposite Dáil Éireann, Ireland’s Parliament, from where newly appointed Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar announced on June 14th his government’s intention to hold a referendum to remove the pro-life amendment.


They want to do absolutely anything that will lead to more death. I am glad these people are marching! Sometimes a cause is just!
