A Story of Life

One of five children, I was born in the late 1930s. Growing up in Ireland during the 1950s was happy, not drab and grey as we are currently led to believe.  In the early 1960s, I emigrated to London with many Irish people. London was a lively place but, compared to now, it was a […]

No Repeal

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 […]

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 […]

Polls show that UK citizens want to stop population control funding abroad

Here’s a situation that is aggravating and bewildering: at a time when the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) is chronically underfunded, and the funds given to the most basic healthcare services are constantly being slashed, the same government has a £200 million budget to promote ‘reproductive and family planning’ (read: widespread use of contraceptives […]

How to Love Your Pro-Choice Enemies

We were walking along the street, side by side, mid-way through my first week as an office junior at a important firm in the heart of a large cosmopolitan city. That’s when my eighteen year old colleague Caitlyn (not her real name) started asking about my sex life before I was married. I was naturally […]

“Pull off a leg or two”: David Daleiden’s horrifying new bombshell video

Yesterday, the Center for Medical Progress released another video, a series of clips highlighting conversations with abortionists as they describe their trade. By the end of the day, YouTube had pulled the video down, and the Washington Post reports that a San Francisco judge has ordered David Daleiden and his attorneys, Steve Cooley and Brentford […]

The Fallacy of the Expatriate Vote

Memories are fresh from 2015 of the drive to bring Irish emigrants from far flung corners of the globe to vote in a certain Referendum. Campaigns such as “get the boat 2 vote” and “home to vote” rose to enormous prominence through social and mainstream media. With the headwinds of populist support blowing in their […]

The defense of life fights ideologies

Defending life at all times for the human being today is a complicated mission Ideologies gain ground among people who are not informed, or who are simply against the defense of life; for economic, demographic, and other reasons. It is more difficult, since the preborn baby is defenseless, and can not flee from those who […]
