13 / 04 / 2012 - Precious life organise 3 Days of Prayer and Fasting to stop Abortion Bill in Irish Parliament
Precious Life has organised 3 Days of Prayer and Fasting to stop the Abortion Bill that comes before Dáil Éireann (the Irish Parliament) on Thursday 19th April.
If this Bill is passed, then abortion-on-demand will be legalised in Ireland. It will have devastating consequences for the whole island of Ireland. Political and constitutional differences between North and South will be irrelevant. Abortion clinics opening in Dublin will be less than a two-hour drive from Belfast.
We urge you to offer up your prayers and sacrifices that this evil Bill will fail.
The 3 Days of Prayer and fasting will be held on Tuesday 17th April; Wednesday 18th April; and Thursday 19th April. It is only with prayer and fasting, combined with activism, that this Bill can be stopped.
This Bill is even worse than the 1967 Abortion Act, which kills over 600 babies in Britain every day. The so-called “Medical Treatment Bill” will allow abortion right up to birth; deny 'conscientious objection' to abortion for pro-life health professionals; create a ‘witch-hunt’ against pro-life doctors, who will be forced to refer women seeking abortion to a pro-abortion doctor; allow doctors to perform an abortion even without the woman’s consent; allow abortions on underage girls without their parent’s or guardian’s consent; criminalise pro-life groups who offer women alternatives to abortion."
The Bill, tabled by Socialist Party TD Clare Daly, is the first ever Private Members’ Bill backing abortion to be introduced in the Dáil.
By using the misleading name - 'Medical Treatment Bill' - Clare Daly is attempting to hoodwink the public. Abortion is not medical treatment. Women in Ireland receive all genuine medical treatment they may need during pregnancy. Without abortion, Ireland is the safest place in the world to have a baby.
In addition to your prayers and fasting, please take action by lobbying your elected representatives and urge them to oppose this Bill.
Please also pass this PRAYER ALERT on to your family and friends by sending them the link to this page, or sharing it on Facebook.
