Right to Life in Northern Ireland

I just learned of this recently from a friend of mine who lives in Northern Ireland. The situation is apparently still of concern, and so I wanted to post this in case any good may come even at this late hour.

Although plans to legalise abortion in Northern Ireland are said to be shelved, N. Irish Pro-Life organization, "Precious Life" remain cautious. Please sign this petition if you are a citizen of the UK. If not a UK citizen, please forward this to anyone you know who is.

"Extending the Abortion Act is against the wishes of the vast majority of people in Northern Ireland." Stop Abortion threat to N. Ireland from Westminster. Sign a POSTCARD PETITION to Northern Ireland Secretary of State.http://www.preciouslife.com/?va=40&vb=41

10/10/2008 - Attempts by Westminster to force legalised abortion onto the province of Northern Ireland could spark a constitutional crisis, say MLAs. Assembly Member, Pat Ramsey (SDLP), called it "outrageous that British MPs are attempting to impose abortion against the clear wishes of the people of Northern Ireland." http://www.preciouslife.com:80/?va=1&vc=306

Hi George
Thank you so much for including the petition link on your webblog . I live in Northern Ireland and I would like to please appeal to all UK citizens to sign this petition to stop this atrocity and to protect precious lifes - http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/Anti-Abortion/ .

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill will be voted on the 22nd of October 2008 in the House of Commons .This Bill is at risk of resulting in changes to the 1967 Abortion Act to Northern Ireland to legalise partial birth abortion. Partial Birth Abortion is horrific and to me, It is like taking a precious gift of life from God and giving it back to Him unopened and mutilated. The vast majority of people in Northern Ireland are not in favour of abortion.

This petition is being addressed directly to the Prime Minister with the request to deny any extension planned for the 1967 Abortion Act to Northern Ireland, as we believe in the right to life of the Unborn.

Please Please support this worthy cause by....
1. signing the petition
2. circulating the petition link
3. offering prayers, fasting etc., for the cause of the protection of the lives of the Unborn

Thank You so much and God Bless You

Thank you Anita! This is indeed a most worthy and important cause. People must understand how gravely important this is. Protection of the unborn is a non-negotiable issue with no room for compromise, for we are literally talking about life and death! Abortion is no less than a world-wide holocaust and the victims are among the most vulnerable among us ... babies in their mothers' wombs! God help us.

John 1:4, "In Him was life, and the life was the light of men."

Life is a precious gift that God gives. At the moment of conception, an awesome miracle takes place, where light and soul fuse. To end that or seperate that is a serious matter and a mortal sin.

In the words of our Blessed Mother, Pray, Pray, Pray.
