7 consequences of abortion in the UK that could occur in Ireland

It’s easy to claim that legalising abortion is the answer to women’s difficulties. Abortion is frequently presented as a simple and personal choice, but it’s not as simple as all that. Legalised abortion has a knock-on effect for everyone in society, not just for women with a crisis pregnancy. It’s something that Ireland has to […]

A death sentence: how the Abortion Committee voted to legalise abortion

It comes as no surprise that the openly rigged and biased Oireachtas Committee on the Eighth Amendment has voted in favour of abortion on demand. It was a foregone conclusion, since the panel was stacked with pro-abortion politicians from the outset, and it heard almost exclusively from pro-abortion witnesses. The Committee was previously referred to […]

The changing positions of Varadkar and Harris on abortion

Simon Harris has had more positions on abortion than there are episodes of Big Bang Theory and he has proclaimed them all in public with the air of a man informing the electorate of a deeply held moral principle. The only person who has flopped this flip as almost as much is his current boss, […]

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

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 […]

HUMAN campaign to reach 1 million people

This month, we launched HUMAN, our powerful new initiative which aims to refocus the abortion debate by pointing out that the humanity, and the human rights, of the preborn child cannot be denied. The media, and a host of well-funded abortion campaigners, have done their best to frame the abortion debate so that the preborn […]

The Faux Feminism of the “Repeal Eight” hypocrites

An open letter to Ailbhe Smyth and the “Repeal the Eight” Feminist wannabes, I see you have invited abortion provider Ann Furedi to Dublin for a chat on the theme of: ‘Abortion and how to help us navigate the Irish Catholic misogynist oppressive laws’. Or something ‘original’ like that. I am amazed at your hypocrisy […]

Dear National Women’s Council, Real feminists oppose abortion

Dear Orla and all at NWCI, I am writing this email in severe disappointment. Dear, oh dear. From one feminist (i.e. me) to another (you, I think…), a quick recap is clearly essential on the meaning of feminism and seeing as you expressed some real howlers at your recent AGM’s “strategic plan”, please read on […]
