Ireland Forced To Make Abortion Legal

This is terrible and it goes against the will of the Irish people.

The Irish Times reports:Irish abortion laws breach human rights, court rules

“The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that Ireland has failed to properly implement the constitutional right to abortion where a woman is entitled to one where her life is at risk.

The ruling will put the issue of abortion back on the political agenda and is likely to force the Government to introduce legislation or official guidelines on access to abortion for women whose lives are at risk.

Minister for Health Mary Harney said the Government would reflect on the ruling and take legal advice.

Acknowledging the judgment was binding on the Irish State, she said the Government would have to come forward with proposals to reflect the ruling. “However, this will take time as it is a highly sensitive and complex area,” Ms Harney said.

The court unanimously ruled this morning that the rights of one of three women who took a case challenging Irish abortion laws were breached because she had no “effective or accessible procedure” to establish her right to a lawful abortion.”

Please pray that the Irish people put pressure on the government to not cede their autonomy to the EU. It would be far better for them to pull out of the EU than to be forced to allow evil.

I don’t know who Kathy Ireland is, but she gives a great argument against abortion
