Pro-abortionists in Irish Republic call for babies to be killed up to moment of birth

Precious Life has condemned the pro-abortion IFPA (Irish Family Planning Association) who are demanding babies in the womb be killed right up to the moment of birth. The organisation is calling for the Republic of Ireland's abortion laws to loosened even further by extending the 12-week limit.

Under the legislation enacted following the abortion referendum, babies up to 12 weeks in the womb can be killed for any reason. After 12 weeks, unborn babies with life-limiting disabilities can be killed. The Department of Health in Ireland is currently undertaking a review of the abortion law.

Director of Precious Life Bernadette Smuth said, “Since the Republic of Ireland legalised abortion in 2018, more than 21,000 babies have been killed. In their demands for more abortions, the IFPA admit they are responsible for killing 758 babies in 2020 and 2021. But that’s not enough for the IFPA. They want even more babies killed by having any time limits scrapped and abortion made available on demand right up to the moment of birth."

The IFPA said, “one day can make a difference…” between a woman having an abortion in Ireland, or choosing to travel because of the 12-week rule. The IFPA claimed this is “highly distressing” and “cruel and inhumane.”

Bernadette Smyth concluded, “What is truly distressing is the reality that babies are being killed in Ireland. The IFPA and Irish Government ignore the cruelty and inhumanity of killing 21,000 babies. Precious Life will continue working to make abortion not only illegal again, but unthinkable.”
