US based Centre for Reproductive Rights intervenes in Irish abortion case.

Last night RTÉ's Prime Time program ran a piece on how the New York based Center for Reproductive Rights is backing a campaign to broaden Ireland's abortion law. The Center for Reproductive Rights is well known for campaigning for abortion without any restrictions. They regularly take cases against laws that try to make late term abortion more restrictive. They've also opposed laws that try to prohibit partial birth abortion and abortions based on sex or race of the unborn baby.
Clíona Johnson of One Day More spoke of her experience in deciding to have her baby after getting a fatal diagnosis for her son, John Paul. Rather than just change the law and make abortion more available she called for a more compassionate society that cares for mothers and their babies when confronted with this situation.
 Cora Sherlock, deputy chairperson of the Pro Life Campaign also appeared on the program. Among many very well made points she expressed concern that a well funded international group like the Center for Reproductive Rights has decided to interfere in the Irish abortion debate.

BPAS intervention in abortion debate is “disgusting but entirely predictable” says PLC

BPAS, the British based abortionists are now spending money promoting a change in Ireland's abortion laws.
Responding to the prominent ad in today’s Irish Times from the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) promoting abortion in Ireland, Cora Sherlock of the Pro Life Campaign said: “It is disgusting but entirely predictable that the BPAS would attempt to exploit the new abortion law in Ireland with a view to establishing abortion clinics here.”
“The BPAS knows full well that the new law provides for abortion but clearly they want it to also include businesses like themselves. The ad in today’s Irish Times is all about publicity for the BPAS and has nothing to do with protecting women’s lives.

PLC calls for assurances that the HIQA report recommendations will be implemented

Following the first anniversary of the death of Savita Halappanavar, the Pro Life campaign have urged the Government to provide assurances that the recommendations from the HIQA report carried out following Savita’s death would be implemented.

PLC spokesperson Dr Ruth Cullen said:
The HIQA report found a catalogue of failures in the care of Savita Halapanavar and was disturbingly similar to the findings of a HSE inquiry into the death of Tania McCabe in 2007 – a death which also resulted from a missed sepsis diagnosis and medical mismanagement. Despite seven years having passed since Tania McCabe’s death, the recommendations from the report after her death had not been implemented nationally. Had these recommendations been implemented the tragedy in Galway may not have happened.

Revealed: the abortion advice that could put lives at risk. One year later.

A year after the appearance of this story in the Irish independent and still no action has been taken.This is disgraceful on the part of the Minister for Health and the government and in marked contrast to how they forced through abortion legislation without considering the evidence.

STAFF at some taxpayer-funded pregnancy counselling services are putting women's lives at risk and breaking the law, an undercover probe has revealed.

The investigation was carried out over several months by a team of women, some from the pro-life movement, who secretly recorded counsellors at 11 locations around the country.
