As over 50 medical, psychiatric and legal experts appeared before the Oireachtas Health Committee to review the draft abortion legislation this week, organisers of the vigil said “The Government plans to rush this legislation through in July even avoiding a vote in the Dáil if possible. Your presence in Merrion Square is vital to challenge this”.
“Right now our Government proposes dangerous and unjust abortion legislation. The Taoiseach says it’s restrictive. Nothing could be further from the truth. It departs from essential medical treatment for women which we all support. Abortion for a suicide threat means abortion on request. No time limit is possible if the X case is legislated for.”
The National Vigil for Life will take place in Dublin’s Merrion Square on Saturday, June 8 at 3pm.
