Thousands of anti-abortion activists gathered in Dublin, Ireland over the weekend for the annual Rally for Life.
According to the Irish Times, demonstrators marched with banners that said, “Abortion steals hope” and “the future is pro-life.” They chanted, “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho Simon Harris has to go.”
Marchers were referring to Simon Harris, the Irish politician who serves as the Minister for Health in Ireland.
The Life Institute, Precious Life and Youth Defence organized the rally, marking its 12th year in Ireland. According to the Irish Times, organizers told reporters the turnout for the rally showed that the “commitment to the pro-life cause had not diminished.”
Niamh Uí Bhriain of the Life Institute, called May 25, 2018 – the day a referendum was made on the Eighth Amendment – as “the most shameful day in Irish history.”
In May 2018, 66.4 percent of voters approved repealing the eighth amendment. About 34 percent voted no. The eighth amendment originally granted an equal right to life to the mother and the unborn child, the Irish Times reports.
