The experience of living in Ireland, in the past week, has made me want to run far far away. I sort of fancy a nice little sunny island somewhere, but that is only wishful thinking on my part, as this is where I live, and I'll just have to put up with being Irish for the foreseeable future. Oh dear :-(
Hysteria erupted in Ireland last week. Yes, a big mad emotional reaction swept across the nation, but the reaction was all based on a lie. This hysteria was created, and sustained by the Irish Choice Network, assisted by our biased liberal media, after the death of poor Savita in a hospital in Galway. The ICN probably thought that all their Christmases had come at once, when they were tipped of about Savita Halappanavar's death. It is disturbing to think that any organisation could so blatantly use the grief of a husband and a family to further their own cause. I can understand the ICN working towards their "abortion on demand" goal, even if I do not approve. But I can not believe how the Irish Choice Network can lie through their teeth and mislead the Irish people, whipping them and people all over the world into a angry rage filled frenzy, to further this cause. The media bias in reporting this sad story has been glaringly obvious. Unfortunately, the truth was abandoned in favour of an agenda. Our journalists need some serious prayer.
As of yet we do not know what caused Savita's death, but any person with a brain would realise that it was not the lack of abortion in Ireland. But the facts do not seem to matter anymore.
Less than 10 days ago, we voted to give Irish children rights in our Constitution, but over the weekend thousands marched to legislate for the death of unborn children. What sort of schizophrenic country are we living in??
The battle to protect our unborn Irish children has begun. Let us not be found wanting!
"Nothing we do to defend the human person, no matter how small, is ever unfruitful or forgotten. Our actions touch other lives and move other hearts in ways we can never fully understand in this world. Don’t ever underestimate the beauty and power of the witness you give in your pro-life work."~ Archbishop Charles Chaput
St Gianna, pray for us
Mary Mother of the Irish, protect our unborn
St Michael the Archangel, assist us in this battle
Oh, sacred Heart of Jesus, we place all our trust in you.
