Pro-life campaign Ireland press release

Commenting today on news that the Minister for Health has signed the commencement order for the recent abortion legislation, the Pro Life Campaign criticised the Government for the 'dishonest' debate leading to its passage. The legislation will take effect from 1st January 2014.

Cora Sherlock of the Pro Life Campaign (PLC) said:

“The debate that led to this legislation was shamefully dishonest. Everyone in Government knows that the legislation was not needed to save women’s lives. That is why the Government had to brow beat their TDs to vote with their party and against their consciences.

“As has been widely publicised the Government had to spend time and money on focus groups to come up with language that would confuse the Irish people into believing the legislation would be good for women. It will take time but the lies that have been told will eventually be exposed.”
