Ahead of a May referendum that would overturn Ireland’s ban on abortion, a group of prominent American pro-life leaders are urging Ireland’s Prime Minister to uphold his country’s 8th amendment.
Dear Editor: Am I my brothers’ keeper? It seems unthinkable that we are not moved by the death of 17 young people in Parkland, Fla.
In two months time, voters in Ireland will head to the polls to decide whether to liberalize the eighth amendment – the Republic of Ireland’s constitutional provision that grants an equal right to life to unborn children and pregnant women, which was established in 1983 and effectively banned abortion within Ireland.
Does the governor really think we need more abortion in our state? And why do the “women’s groups” think this is progress?
Governor Andrew Cuomo’s proposed budget for 2018 proposes to radically expand the state’s abortion offerings and cut back on its commitment to private education.
The Irish government announced it will hold a referendum in late May asking citizens whether they want to retain or delete the constitutional article that provides for the equal right to life of the mother and her unborn child “with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother.”
This week’s Tablet TALK offers opportunities to get a fresh start in this new year and highlights those who have made significant achievements.
Dear Editor: Letter writer Tom Morano (Oct. 7) has some good points as to why he supports certain persons for public office. These are issues that should have universal concern. But what he misses in his opinion is that abortion is the killing of a human baby.
Dear Editor: I found the opinion of Robert Tillman (Sept. 16) regarding Catholics who support politicians who are pro choice (or as he incorrectly labels “abortionists”) to be extremely simplistic.
A new ad campaign from Catholics for Choice is promoting the repeal of the Hyde Amendment and public funding for abortion. Pro-life activists counter that the campaign is an affront to Catholics and risks jeopardizing debates over healthcare.
