As abortion vote is set, Irish bishops encourage respect for life
.- The Irish government announced Monday that a referendum that could liberalize Ireland’s abortion laws will be set for a vote in late May or early June, sparking a call for respect for human life from the country’s bishops.
“The innate dignity of every human life, from conception to natural death, is a value for the whole of society, rooted in reason as well as in faith,” stated Archbishop Eamon Martin of Armagh and Primate of all Ireland, in a recent pastoral message.
“The Catholic Church, in common with other people of goodwill, teaches that ending the life of an unborn child, like the taking of any other innocent human life, is always evil and can never be justified,” Archbishop Martin continued.
The referendum will decide whether to repeal the constitutional amendment that bans abortion in Ireland, known as the Eighth Amendment. The amendment was passed by a referendum vote in 1983, when nearly 67 percent of Irish voters approved it.
The amendment reads, in part, “The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.”
Repeal of the amendment could permit abortion for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Abortion is already permitted in Ireland when a women’s health or life is in danger, and some Irish women travel to the United Kingdom for abortions. According to Irish Health Minister Simon Harris, 3,265 Irish woman traveled to the United Kingdom for abortions in 2016.
In a recent pastoral letter, Bishop Kevin Doran of Elphin said that “the reference to the right to life (of the child and of the mother) would be removed from the Constitution and not replaced with anything else.”
“When it comes to the right to choose, there is a tendency to forget that there is another person involved; a vulnerable person who has no choice and who depends entirely on others for protection,” Bishop Doran said.
“If society accepts that one human being has the right to end the life of another, then it is no longer possible to claim the right to life as a fundamental human right for anybody,” he added.
Archbishop Martin has also argued that a constitutional repeal would have detrimental effects for Ireland’s future.
“To repeal this Article will leave unborn children defenseless, and completely at the mercy of whatever abortion laws are introduced into Ireland – both immediately, as will inevitable be further broadened in future years,” Martin said.
“Abortion ends the human life of an unborn girl or boy. It deceives women – and men – by creating a culture where the decision to end the life of an unborn child is portrayed as simply a matter of individual ‘choice,’” he continued.
However, Ireland’s Prime Minister Leo Varadkar believes that the public should vote on the country’s abortion laws, saying that he “does not believe the Constitution is the place for making absolute statements about medical, moral and legal issues,” according to CNN.
When he was the country’s Health Minister in 2014, Varadkar took a pro-life stance. However, CNN reported that the prime minister has since changed his views, saying his stance had “evolved over time,” and that he would vote to repeal the Eighth Amendment.
A poll conducted by Ipsos/MRBI for the Irish Times reported that 56 percent of the country would support the change in constitution, allowing abortion up to 12 weeks. The poll also showed that 29 percent of the population would oppose the change, while 15 percent were still undecided.
However, Pro-Life Campaign spokeswoman Cora Sherlock said that number is likely to change over time when people begin to really think and debate over the topic.
“When this happens, I am confident that the polls will move in a pro-life direction,” Sherlock said, according to the Irish Times.
Bishop Doran encouraged dialogue over the upcoming referendum, saying that pro-life citizens should openly discuss their views “over a cup of tea or a pint.”
“It’s not about debating or being confrontational. At the most basic level, it is just about letting other people see that they are not alone and that it is perfectly reasonable to believe in the right to life,” Doran said.
Both Doran and Martin also encouraged the country to pray that Ireland would “choose life,” and prompted the faithful to write to Irish politicians asking them to defend the unborn. In addition, the bishops said that the church should continue to find ways to support women and families.
“Whatever happens in respect of the Constitution, there will continue to be a need to support women, especially women who face challenging circumstances in pregnancy,” Doran said.
“May God bless you all and give you wisdom and courage to bear witness, with love, to the Gospel of Life.”
I aborted 1200 babies, then my 6-year-old daughter was hit, and killed
March 2, 2015 (Priests for Life) – I started doing abortions in 1977 in New York State during my OB residency. I graduated in 1980 and went into private practice, first in Florida and later in New York. In five years, I performed 1,200 abortions, including 100 second-trimester saline abortions and later, D&E abortions up to 24 weeks.
Let me tell you about saline abortions. They are horrible because you see one intact, whole baby being born, and sometimes they were alive. That was very, very frightening.
With D&E abortions, we traded one kind of brutality for another. You tear the arms and legs off babies and put them in a stack on the table. Babies are never born alive after a D&E abortion. It’s hard. If you have any heart at all, it affects you.
During this time, my wife and I found out we probably would not be able to conceive a child on our own, so we began looking for a baby to adopt. We ran up against one road block after another trying to find a baby to adopt, and I was throwing them in the garbage at the rate of nine or ten a week.
Finally we were able to adopt a baby girl. We named her Heather. A few years later, my wife gave birth to our son.
My daughter Heather was hit by a car in front of our home when she was two months shy of her sixth birthday. She died in our arms in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. I did a few more late-term abortions after that, but it was too difficult to continue.
When you lose your child, life is very different. Everything changes. All of a sudden, the idea of a person’s life becomes very real. It is not an embryology course anymore. It’s not just a couple of hundred dollars. It’s the real thing. It’s your child you buried. The old discomforts came back. I couldn’t even think about a D&E abortion anymore. No way. I stopped doing the second-trimester abortions. Then I came to the realization that if I shouldn’t be killing children in the second trimester, then I shouldn’t be killing them earlier, either.
I became involved with the pro-life movement and that has helped me heal and to find forgiveness. How do you make up for the 1,200 dead kids? You can’t.
As an abortionist, I was at the epicenter of the earthquake but since I stopped doing abortions and became involved with pro-life efforts, I can clearly see how abortion affects everyone connected with the child who dies. I regret performing abortions.

NEW STUDY YOKES BIRTH CONTROL TO DEPRESSION http://www.pagadiandiocese.org/2016/10/10/new-study-yokes-birth-control-to-depression/
Michael Voris talks an in-depth discussion of the true, financial cost of abortion and its effects to the United States. Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that, “The inalienable rights of the person must be recognized and respected by civil society and the political authority. These human rights depend neither on single individuals nor on parents; nor do they represent a concession made by society and the state; they belong to human nature and are inherent in the person by virtue of the creative act from which the person took his origin. Among such fundamental rights one should mention in this regard every human being’s right to life and physical integrity from the moment of conception until death” (CDF, Donum vitae III; CCC: 2273).

But the truth is far different; the Rockefeller Foundation is actively undermining the Catholic Church, and in the process, attempting to erase man’s natural orientation to the eternal.
Global Warming Unmasked click below:
Are the environmental movements and groups simply devoted to laudable, correct stewardship of God’s creation, or do they have a more sinister, hidden agenda? Is “global warming” being used as an excuse for something far darker? Is the final goal of the liberal elites behind the push of junk science population control, eugenics and Gaia worship?
