27 October marks 50 years since the Abortion Act 1967 became law in England and Wales, effectively legalising abortion. Political leaders claimed that they were not introducing abortion on demand. But in the first five years of the Act, abortions rose from 23,641 in 1968 to 156,741 in 1972 – a staggering 563% increase. Last year alone, there were 185,596 abortions there.
And this is what the repeal advocates want to bring to Ireland!
Each year, 1 in 5 pregnancies in England and Wales ends in abortion; this is more than 300% higher than the Irish rate. The 8th Amendment has saved more than 100,000 Irish lives. The referendum is possibly just months away. Now is the time for Ireland to stand together to protect our babies and mothers. Stand with us to save the 8th Amendment.
