America and the entire world will be watching Ireland and praying that voters will not vote on May 25 to repeal the eighth amendment of the country’s constitution. This 1983 amendment gives the equal right to life to both mother and the unborn child. Support to retain the protection of unborn life is escalating, despite the Irish government’s severe misinformation campaign to end the constitutionally protected right to life of the unborn.
According to The Independent, “A new poll on the eighth amendment published in today’s Irish Times shows 47% of people would vote to Repeal, while 28% would vote to Retain. What is significant is that the recent poll numbers represent the Repeal’s lead diminishing and is currently down from 62% in the last poll by Ipsos MORI for the paper in December 2017.
Why is this right so crucial to Ireland and to millions of the unborn other nations?
The very fact that an unborn baby has greater constitutional protection to life than an unborn baby in America or in other countries is crucial. Currently, there has been renewed efforts by pro-abortion forces in the United States by Planned Parenthood to increase the number of legislators in states and congressional representatives to deny the unborn the right to life. Other nations which have leftist George Soros funded groups engaging in actions to push for lessening legal protections of the unborn.
