• False Facts? Kate O’Connell is getting it badly wrong in the Abortion Committee

    Monday, October 16, 2017

    The Oireachtas Committee on Abortion is in shambles, with two politicians, Mattie McGrath TD and Rónán Mullen, threatening to withdraw because of the extraordinary bias shown in calling 20 pro-abortion witnesses versus just 3 pro-life speakers. Mattie McGrath has described the whole thing as a farce and an “insult to democracy”. And so it is. […]

  • Abortion extremists keep pushing for more and more abortion access in the UK

    Tuesday, October 3, 2017

    This is an article I wish I didn’t have to write.  A short time ago, September 22, 2017, we were all holding our breaths waiting for the results of a vote by 33 representatives of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG).  As we guessed they would, they voted in favour of campaigning to […]

  • No Repeal

    Tuesday, October 3, 2017

    Being far away, I can only watch the current debate regarding the abortion repeal referendum in Ireland with anger, sadness, powerlessness and bewilderment. Living in the Faroe Islands for the past twenty-seven years, I have first hand experience of abortion and its consequences. Abortion is available here up for to 16 weeks gestation, though gynecologists […]

  • Improved services, not a repeal of the 8th, is needed to prevent outcomes like that of Savita Halappanavar

    Wednesday, September 20, 2017

    Savita Halapanavar died on Sunday 28 October 2012, seven days after her admission to University Hospital Galway (UHG), where she was treated on St Monica’s Ward, a gynaecology ward within the Women’s and Children’s Directorate of the Hospital. She was a 31-year-old woman who was 17 weeks pregnant with her first child. Her tragic case […]

  • A deeper basis for being “Pro-Life”

    Monday, September 18, 2017

    I was struck by an article in The Avondhu by Donal O’Keeffe (30.05.17), ‘If abortion really is murder, why no “pro-life” pickets at ports and airports’. I believe it conveyed a rather poor and misleading impression of pro-life people and while I appreciate it’s an opinion piece, it deserves a right of reply. This is […]

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 […]

The UN should be looking to follow Ireland’s progressive and compassionate stance on abortion

WE ARE HEARING, with increasing regularity, that the United Nations is insisting that Ireland must legalise abortion. Since the primary mission of the UN is to protect human rights, this seems more than a little strange because you cannot, in my view, be a genuine human rights defender while calling for some human beings to be […]

The Eighth Amendment reflects some of Ireland’s deepest values

The Irish are a caring people; evidence of this is ample. The surge in homelessness has touched a nerve of compassion which has led to hands-on volunteering on the night-time streets of our cities and towns. Cork Simon, St Vincent de Paul Society and Share are household names which have lacked neither numbers nor support […]
