At the center of this debate is the Eight Amendment to Ireland’s Constitution.
The Eighth Amendment acknowledges a mother’s right to life, but also extends an equal right to the life of the unborn child.
The Government, which two years ago gifted a Tricolor and a copy of the Proclamation to every school in the country has now decided to call a referendum on the 8th Amendment. The current Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, has announced the referendum on repealing the Eight Amendment is likely to be held on May 25th of this year. The announcement came after a meeting of the Cabinet yesterday.
"Save the 8th" is a campaign to defend the amendment to the Irish constitution, which defends the equal right to life of the mother and unborn baby.
There are some who are very passionate about justice but seemingly give very little attention to the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of unborn babies each year.
Save the 8th movement needs intelligent, strategizing and brave campaigning to reach those whose minds are not yet made up on this issue. Will you help to Save the 8th?
Please pass this on to your relatives and friends, especially those who live in the south of Ireland. Please ask them to vote "No" to repealing the 8th Amendment and ask others to do the same.
"Cherish ALL the children of the nation equally; not just the privileged, planned or the perfect."
