The Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution (1983) reads:
“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.”
Precious Life states:
“In May, we face a referendum to remove the right to life of preborn babies from our Constitution. The proposal put forward by the government would make our ‘abortion laws’ more extreme than the UK where 200,000 babies lose their lives every year.
March 10th is the last major pro-life rally where we stand FOR life before the referendum. If we sit back and do nothing, this may be the last year where preborn babies have a right to life in Ireland.”
