Custom House Square, BELFAST City Centre : 7 SEPTEMBER @ 2PM
Please stand with pro-lifers in the North on 7th September as they fight back against the attempt to impose abortion from Westminster.
The north of Ireland is under massive pressure now because of The “Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Act 2019” – which includes the legislation to permit killing unborn babies in Northern Ireland – officially became law on the 24th July after receiving Royal Assent.
This was despite enormous levels of opposition from the people of Northern Ireland, thousands of whom wrote to members of both the House of Commons and the Lords. This dire development means that – unless the Stormont Parliament is up and running by 21st October 2019 – abortion will be legalised, removing all legal safeguards from unborn babies and their mothers in Northern Ireland.
Precious Life, Youth for Life and lots of other groups North and South of the border are organsing a major rally on Saturday, 7th September to mobilise, motivate, organise and lobby. PLEASE keep this in mind and make a big effort to be there. The organisations up there are already out on the ground, talking to the public, knocking on doors but they need our help to fight the massive abortion machine. We have seen here in the Republic what a blow it is to have abortion legalised and how hard it will be to push it back, you have a chance to help in the North now, please help if you can.
