The decision by the present Irish Government to legislate for abortion means that Irish law will permit the direct and intentional killing of innocent unborn babies. Doctors in Ireland have confirmed that mothers already receive any life-saving treatments they need during pregnancy – and that this is achieved without directly targeting the life of the baby.
The Choose Life: We Cherish them Both, Vigil of Prayer for the Right to Life of Mothers and their Unborn Babies, was an opportunity for all people of faith and goodwill to join in prayer for mothers and unborn babies, that they will continue to be protected, cherished, and safeguarded from all harm.
The next Vigil for Life will take place on Saturday 8 June 2013 from 2-4pm in Merrion Square, Dublin. Please be part of this special day and invite as many of your family, friends and loved ones as you can.
In the words of Pope Francis, before he became Pope:
“Caring for life from the beginning to the end. What a simple thing, what a beautiful thing. So, go forth and don’t be discouraged. Care for life. It’s worth it!” (Mass in honour of Saint Raymond Nonnatus, Patron Saint of Expectant Mothers, Argentina (31 August 2005)
