Maternal care will radically change if right to life is repealed

The Government is on the back foot on the 8th Amendment. Their aim is now to gain repeal at any cost. Politically, it has put its neck on the line, and this is being seen as win or bust- for Leo’s tenure and Simon’s political future. Thus, they have to do whatever they feel will […]

Using AVP: Aren’t the images desensitizing?

One of the questions we are often asked about using abortion victim photography is regarding desensitization. “Doesn’t seeing the images over and over again make you numb to abortion’s horrific reality?” someone may ask. The answer to this question is, quite simply, no. Of course, in order to do a job where you are faced […]

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 […]

Why Saturday’s National Life Canvass Day shows we will win this referendum

Last Saturday, along with hundreds of other people across the country, I joined the Life Canvass going door to door in the winter sunshine to save the 8th. It was the second National Life Canvass  Day and everywhere there were more teams, more canvassers, new volunteers and more people reached with the pro-life message. Just […]

Mattie McGrath calls out Dr Fergal Malone: in response Malone attacks the evidence

It was a telling moment at the farcical and, to quote Professor Patricia Casey,  “deeply imbalanced” Abortion Committee hearings. To date, all of the medical professionals who had been chosen by the largely pro-abortion TDs on the Committee, had spoken in favour of legalising abortion.  Not one pro-life doctor had been asked to give evidence. […]

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

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

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 […]

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 […]
