Abortion proponents are using the courts to try and impose
abortion on Ireland, and the country's government is pushing a new
law to legalize it.
For two decades, government leaders have resisted passing a law
to support a 1992 Supreme Court ruling that pushed for legalized
abortion in Ireland. Brian Clowes of Human Life International (HLI) tells OneNewsNow
the proposal does contain exceptions.
"To push these really so-called 'strict' exceptions, they're
going to legalize abortion to save the life of the mother in
Ireland, and also if the woman threatens suicide," the pro-lifer
"Well, here's what's up about that -- that's really abortion on
demand, because the abortionists say each and every pregnancy
threatens a woman's life from a strict medical viewpoint; [and
therefore] every pregnancy should be aborted."
Before abortion was legalized in America, that logic was used to
justify an otherwise illegal "therapeutic" procedure. For example,
Clowes says an abortionist might tell a girl or woman, "All you
have to do is tell me that you just thought about suicide, and I
can do this abortion."
"So, these pro-abortion people are the same all over the world,"
the HLI spokesman decides. "They're as dishonest as the day is
long. If you have these two exceptions -- to save the mother's
life, that can justify all abortions; if she threatens suicide,
that can justify all abortions. It's just a complete sham."
The call for legalized abortion in Ireland stems from the recent
death of a pregnant mother. But abortion proponents are not
reporting that the woman never requested an abortion and actually
died from an infection.
