Irish Government: Introduce Emergency Measures to Stop Abortion Surge
There has been a stunning increase in abortion numbers in Ireland since it was legalised in 2018 and women no longer travel to the UK. The year after legalisation, abortions doubled.
Now, shocking figures, just uncovered, show that over 5,000 babies have been killed by abortion in just the first six months of this year. If this trend is not reversed, we face an unprecedented abortion total for 2023 of over 10,000 babies - a 40% increase on the previous year.
One abortion is too many, but we must do everything possible to stop these spiralling numbers! That's why Family & Life and CitizenGO are launching this petition right now.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition calling on the Irish Government to introduce emergency measures to help reverse the recent explosion of abortions in Ireland.
These new figures were unearthed following a parliamentary question by Independent TD Carol Nolan. Also discovered, from January and June of this year, abortion providers received €300 for every baby killed.
To say abortion providers are 'making a killing' is an understatement. No wonder so many of them are up in arms at the suggestion of any restrictions to abortion, and are hell-bent on ending the three-day waiting period which is built into the 2018 abortion legislation.
Worse still, for the past number of years, the Government's focus has been to remove all restrictions on abortion in Ireland.
This must be opposed. Instead, we must introduce emergency measures to limit abortion in Ireland and promote the right to life of the unborn human being.
- First, as a starting point, we need more provisions for expectant mothers and for families with children in the form of greater child allowances and tax credits.
- Second, the life-saving 3-day wait period must be retained. Over 4,000 babies are alive today because mothers changed their minds during this mandatory waiting period.
- And third, starting immediately, pregnancy should be promoted in a positive light by the state in schools and universities, and the stigma of an unplanned pregnancy must be consigned to the past.
Please SIGN this emergency petition and encourage your family and friends to do the same by SHARING the petition. Thank you!
