Support Irishman Hungerstriking to Protect the 8th Amendment

A Donegal man, Tim Jackson, has started a "hungerstrike" outside the Dáil, calling for the Taoiseach and the Committee examining the 8th Amendment (the pro-life Amendment to the Irish Constitution) to watch a video depicting an abortion (in animation) before making any decision on changing the legal status quo.

Currently, the 8th Amendment to the Irish Constitution gives equal protection to the lives of both the mother and her unborn child, and does not prevent doctors from performing live-saving treatment should the necessity arise in a crisis pregnancy.

The wording of the 8th Amendment states: "The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right."

But, right now, the Irish Government are pursuing an agenda which could see the 8th Amendment either removed entirely from the Constitution, or amended in such a way as to allow abortion in certain circumstances. Both of these scenarios would lead to the deaths of Irish unborn children.

And, that is why Jackson started his "hungerstrike". Actually, Jackson has stated that he does not intend to go to the death, but will fast on water alone, "as long as necessary". For this reason (his intention not to go to the point of death), we can make a call for supporting both him AND his demand.

Again, Jackson is asking that the politicians charged with making a decision about the 8th Amendment watch a video depicting an abortion (in animation).

It only seems reasonable that, before deciding on the fate of the unborn child (i.e., whether future unborn Irish children will live or die), these politicians should understand what an abortion actually does to the unborn child (i.e., that it dies a violent death).

During his "hungerstrike", Jackson will hold a white flag, saying of it: "I've got my white flag which is really a message to the politicians that they have to end this killing of the unborn, not going any further with it..."

Please sign this petition in support of Jackson and his demand - and, help keep abortion out of Ireland.

Also, if you wish to leave Tim a note of support, please feel free to use that facility in the SIGN box. Thank you!

We support hungerstriker, Tim Jackson, and his call for politicians to watch video on abortion

For the Attention of:

  • Prime Minister of Ireland - Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar
  • Chairwoman of the Oireachtas Committee examining the Eighth Amendment - Senator Catherine Noone

We, the undersigned, voice our support for "hungerstriker", Tim Jackson, and his demand that you, An Taoiseach and the Committee examining the 8th Amendment, watch videos made with Dr Levatino - the same doctor and former-abortionist interviewed earlier this year by the Citizens' Assembly - depicting an abortion (in animation).

We believe that this request is fully in-line with the Government's promotion of a possible change to the status quo, and, especially, before the Abortion Committee returns to the Oireachtas with recommendations about the 8th Amendment.

It only seems reasonable that, before deciding on the fate of the unborn child (i.e., whether future unborn Irish children will live or die), you should understand what an abortion actually does to the unborn child...the violence of abortion.

Dr Levatino's videos make for sobering viewing. And, they are completely factual with no sensationalism whatsoever, which - for a physician, like yourself, An Taoiseach - should be intellectually satisfying, if unsettling.

After viewing these videos, then, the question you must ask is: Do I really want to be responsible for bringing this kind of deliberate destruction of human life into Ireland?

Please consider Tim Jackson's demand carefully, and putting aside typical politicians' defences for a moment, please watch the videos.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
