766 babies born alive after abortions and left to die in Canada over five years

My friend and fellow blogger Patricia Maloney, who has been covering the story of live-birth abortions for several years now, published some of her latest findings last week: According to new data, livebirth late-term abortions are still happening in Canada. And the numbers are way too high. According to CIHI, There were 766 late-term live-birth abortions in a five […]

Simon Harris and the appalling misuse of the Tragic C case

The narrative on the upcoming referendum is being hijacked by ‘alternative facts’, ‘fake news’ and a corruption of the truth by media commentators, politicians and, even in some cases, doctors themselves. A primary example is the narrative is that the 8th needs to be removed to save women’s lives. This is repeated ad nauseam, yet, […]

Stop the spin on Abortion, Coveney

Demonstrating what defenders of the 8th Amendment have been saying for months, Simon Coveney has shown that politicians cannot be trusted when it comes to abortion. An Tánaiste provided definitive proof that they neither have the ability or willingness to protect unborn life in any meaningful way if the 8th amendment to the Constitution is […]

Harris is driving abortion agenda, but asleep at the wheel of the healthcare shambles  

The Irish health system is failing in terms of cost, patient satisfaction and waiting times, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), indicated on the 8th of March, International Women’s Day. And they say it is likely to get worse. Four days later it was reported that 714 sick people were on trolleys awaiting […]

Dear Leo, the problem with ‘safe, legal & rare’ abortion

Dear Leo, I’ve read with some interest your comments on the pending referendum and wanted to comment on your wholly predictable use of the ‘safe, legal and rare’ cliché, in relation to abortion. No doubt you’re aware that this is a catchphrase “invented” by the Clintons: the man accused of multiple accounts of sexual harassment […]

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 […]
