SPUC launches new video to save the Eighth

15 November 2016


​Rebecca Kiessling, a world-renowned pro-life advocate, explains why the 8th amendment must be protected.

The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children is launching a new video calling on Irish people throughout the world to rally to the defence of the nation's unborn children. In Ireland children in the womb are currently protected from abortion by the pro-life 8th amendment of the Irish Constitution.

This amendment, which is estimated to have saved more than 100,000 lives since its introduction in 1983, is under sustained attack from international pro-abortion campaigners. It is widely expected that a referendum will held on the repeal of the amendment, perhaps as early as 2017.

In this powerful new video leading pro-life campaigners in Ireland, and from the Irish diaspora worldwide, explain why the 8th amendment must be preserved and defended. Speakers include former presidential candidate Dana Rosemary Scallon, internationally renowned pro-life speaker Rebecca Kiessling, and former MEP and disability rights campaigner Kathy Sinnott. SPUC urges all our supporters worldwide to watch and share this video and take action to defend all the children of Ireland.

    Fantastic, chilling, but ultimately inspirational. Let Ireland learn from England's fatal error.

    Well done SPUC - a brilliant video. This should be shown on RTE and in every cinema in Ireland. We will do our best to make it more widely known and post a link on our websites. Keep up the good work. God bless you all.

    time to put human life above human rights,
    no point in rights for e.g.disabled if they are not wanted in the first place.
    taking life is the ultimate in discrimination.
