A Substantial Majority Voted for Unrestricted Abortion

 This is a Great Loss, and grounds for a period of Mourning

Ecclesiastes 3:1 & 4b
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: …. (4b) a time to mourn …

Well, 66% / 34% is pretty decisive, and a very disappointing outcome for us on the retain side. It is such a profound and society defining moment. It is hard to believe that the Irish people care so little for the unborn as this.
They have decided, and it seems all the previously “undecided” voters went for the repeal option. So there will be a loss of nine healthy babies (at current rates) everyday, to abortion. This will now begin in earnest in Ireland if the politicians push ahead with this, as expected. If nine healthy children were to lose their lives in one day – for any other reason, there would be a day of national mourning. And the same again tomorrow ….

On Saturday morning, as I was getting up and preparing to go to the count centre, I had the distinct thought about the appropriateness of “mourning”. It seemed entirely appropriate. It still is and will be for some time to come.
I believe now is a time for us to ‘embrace’ the need for mourning, and to step aside for this ‘season‘ and wait on God and seek solace and comfort in His arms and embrace. Soon enough there will be things to be done and battles to face, but for now, if you take my advise, don’t be too quick to rush away. Take the time to mourn this loss. You will be the better for it. I hope you find the following article on this useful.

I am enclosing a summary of a very good article I read on this from Focus on the Family and I have enclosed links to this, and another one from Care for the Family, – which you may find helpful, if you are in mourning, as I am.
I’ll be in touch again next week

All of you are showing as “subscribed”. If this is an error, you can unsubscribe with the link at the bottom of this mail, or contact me and I will address it right away

Grieving – Some Helpful Advise

Grieving: A Painful But Necessary Process

In Matthew 5:4, Jesus said, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Mourning doesn’t just happen at funerals. It can happen whenever we face a loss no matter what it is. Some people don’t mourn because it’s too painful. Mourning is a process that helps us deal with our sadness. It’s healthy, even though it’s difficult.
If you’re a guy, you may be feeling pressure from others to be strong and not let your emotions show. In reality, the hurt is still there whether you face it or not. When you choose to avoid it or bury it inside, it doesn’t help. As painful as they may be, emotional wounds need to be exposed to Jesus Christ so He can heal them. He accepts us with our sadness, wants to comfort us and promises He will.
Grieving is invaluable, and it’s a skill that can be used throughout your life in many situations. If you understand how to grieve now, you can avoid a lot of unnecessary heartache down the road.

Tasks of Grief
You may have heard someone say that grief has different stages and that we have to walk through each stage to “get past the pain.” Talking about stages of grief can be helpful for understanding our reactions, as long as we don’t view those stages too rigidly. They don’t always follow a specific progression. Stages can blend. Sometimes you might skip back and forth between them. For that reason it may be more helpful to view them as four “grief tasks” to work through, rather than four consecutive stages
Task 1 — Accept the reality of the loss.
When you first hear about a loss, you may experience shock or denial. You might think, No! This couldn’t have happened; it just doesn’t make sense! It may take a few weeks for your mind to catch up with reality. Difficulty sleeping, a change in appetite or a strong desire to be with others may show up at this point in your life. Having a clear picture of what you’ve lost will help you move to the second task.
Task 2 — Work through to the pain of grief.
When the truth finally hits you, it’s not as though you’ll wake up from a dream and find everything back to normal. In fact, as time goes on, you’ll become aware of how this loss will change your life forever. Not only are you likely to feel the deep sense of hurt, but there may be strong anger toward another person, yourself or even God. These emotions can be intensified on certain dates such as your brother’s first birthday after his death, your parent’s wedding anniversary after a divorce, or the anniversary of the loss itself. Recognizing and allowing yourself to feel the pain is an honest reaction that can eventually help you to heal.
Task 3 — Accept your world with the loss.
Once you’ve faced the despair, with time and God’s help, you will increasingly be able to accept the loss and realize that life goes on. Acceptance isn’t about trying to block the loss out of your mind. Instead, it’s about realizing that the loss will change your world, and that you’re still meant to have a whole and healthy life in this new and different world. You’ll have the ability to focus on future living once you’re able to say goodbye with your heart to the things or people you’ve lost.
Task 4 — Have a place for your memories, but move on with life.
In some ways this is a continuation of Task 3. Here you are able to take specific, concrete steps to go on with your life in this new world. Memories and sadness remain, but there’s a new strength to move on.

How Can I Grieve?
OK, so you understand that dealing with your grief and pain is sometimes a long road, and that you may have to walk the same section of it several times before healing starts to happen. But that doesn’t sound very encouraging, does it? Fortunately, there are some specific things you can do while you’re walking that road. And while no single action is the key to everyone’s walk of grief, some of these suggestions may help you.
(Ed. – the full text of this article is available by clicking here). For now, these are the 7 points in summary

1. Identify what you’ve lost.
2. Touch your pain.
3. Tell your story.
4. Deal with your regrets.
5. Don’t bury your resentments.
6. Take a break.
7. Look forward.

Keep in Mind
Along the road of grief, many people fall into potholes because they can’t see clearly what’s up ahead. Remembering these few things will help you avoid getting stuck on your journey:

  • No two people grieve the same way.
  • Life doesn’t stop for your pain.
  • Watch out for unhealthy affection.
  • Old losses may still need to be mourned.

The Bottom LineNo one can make you grieve; you have to decide if you will. The questions included here can help if you don’t want to bury your emotions. Think about them with your heart. God can give you the courage to face the pain. Talk with your parents, close friends, youth leader or church leader about your grief. If you feel stuck, it may also be helpful to speak with a counselor.
Remember, grieving is never an easy process, but God is available to give you His comfort and peace. And in time, you will be able to move forward in His power.

Last Major Rally This Saturday 12th May 2018 @ 2pm In Dublin’s Merrion Square

Stand Up For Life !  This is it 

Ireland stands on the precipice.
We have the CHOICE
– Step over
(in step with the Government)
– Stand Still 
(stand up for our Christian Principles, that human life matters)
The choice is that simple

One way or another – Ireland will never be the same again afterwards. There are very serious consequences for the outcome – in either case. (We will address these at a later date)

Please, can we ask you to come to the Rally for Life this Saturday. (click on the icon opposite to Register and see more). Your presence matters and your vote matters.

Come out and
Help with the Canvass

With only 17 days left, and momentum building, this is most certainly a defining moment for Irish Society, and our future.
You can play a significant part

Over the past few days, I have been out canvassing door to door. Here is what has been happening : –
– those on the RETAIN / NO side – were glad to see us and welcomed the opportunity to have their deep seated thinking affirmed by the clear information in the literature

– those on the REPEAL / YES side – had mostly made up their minds and no real room for discussion

– the UNDECIDED – when they had the opportunity to hear what we had to say, were willing to listen, andgrasped the enormity of the situation, and they willingly took the information. Most are likely to VOTE NO. Providing them with the right facts and information is crucial

In 3 weeks time, you or I can watch all the TV we want, engage in our favorite pastimes, and work on our favorite hobbies. Canvassing will be over.
So if you’re willing – CONTACT US and join a team in your area to go out as part of an experienced team of canvassers – to reach out to people in your own locality and neighborhood. Every vote matters.

The Pro-Life Campaign – Summarise Key Reasons Very Well

The Facts Speak for Themselves

There is no other measure in the Irish Governmental structure saving more lives every year, than the 8th Amendment

Minds are Focusing on the Issues

Public Debate

There was a clear and compelling debate on the last hour of the Late Late Show last Friday. What is clear is that
– On the Retain side, there are compelling arguments – principally

  • repeal = NO RIGHT TO LIFE – NO HUMAN RIGHTS for the BABY
  • repeal = a lot of HURTING MOTHER‘s afterwards
  • repeal = Trust POLITICIANS with a blank-cheque for all future Legislation
  • repeal = WIDESPREAD abortion in Ireland (In the UK – abortions rose 500% in the first five years (1968 @ 22k -> 1972 @ 108k)

– On the Repeal side – there is no care or consideration given to the baby and the baby’s welfare or well-being. Their conversation is entirely about the mother. Purchasing and taking the abortion pill from the internet – is happening as widely in the UK as it is in Ireland.

While there are number of difficult types of cases – this is not what is being addressed – but it is what the Repeal Side are talking about.
The USA and UK Statistics show that between 2% and up to 3% of cases fall within the hard-case / medical related issues leading to abortion. Thus, 97%-98% of abortions are NOT for these reasons.

2016 – Irish Women having abortions in UK = 3,265, where these statistics come from, would mean

  • if 3% of abortions are “hard-cases” = 98 cases
  • 97% – of abortions are for ‘social reasons’ = 3,165 cases. These are what the Doctors and Obstetricians call HEALTHY BABIES being borne by HEALTHY IRISH MOTHERS.
  • If the Referendum is passed and we follow the 500% growth that the UK did in 1968-72, then likely as not 15-16,000 healthy Irish Babies a year may be being aborted in Ireland by 2025, and a similar proportion of Irish mothers (and farther’s) who will live to regret those decisions.

Let’s not go there ….

The most compelling and credible witness

Sr Consilio – Founder of Cuan Mhuire 

Repeal of right to life ‘profoundly unjust’ – 100 lawyers

Last evening, I sat beside my own mother (also a midwife, now aged 96) for about a half hour, in her room. Little was said or needed to be said. Her impact upon our family and her grandchildren has been immense.

I was honoured to sit a listen to Sr Consilio speaking in Tralee, over a year ago, about her life and journey, caring for women and mothers who had been caught in addiction. She had given everything for those she took in and cared for. Just like my own mother, and my wife’s mother.

When these ‘elder-statesmen” spoke – we listened. Especially the grandchildren.

So when Sr Consilio spoke out this week – I listened. You can hear her comments here

Doctors for Life

I saw Dr Andrew O Regan on you-tube this week and on the Doctors For Life website you can pick up on what he said at the Conference

GP Led Service (yikes!) 
It is not the case stated by the Minister, and it has come as a shock to many GP’s. Dr Andrew O’Regan’s Presentation on Saturday week, can be found here

Conscientious Objection
This also will progressively become a very contentious and fraught area for those in the medical profession, as freedom of conscience is increasingly being denied all over the world.
Another significant reason – to vote NO in the referendum ….

The 8th Amendment and Medical Care Conference. 

The Sanctity of Human Life –Radio Programme Podcasts – Real Stories

ONLY one month left to SAVE the 8th Amendment

Morality and Public Policy

Thankfully, you and I living in Ireland, have a voice and a right to be heard in the setting of Key Issues of Public Policy. A Referendum !

There is no escaping the fact that the Right to Life, enshrined in our Constitution and stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – is an ABSOLUTE.
Without life, no other Rights have any possibility of applying.

In one months time, Irish voters will make a decision which is going to either
– AFFIRM the RIGHT TO LIFE of its most vulnerable and weakest citizens, OR
– TAKE AWAY THAT RIGHT from its most vulnerable citizens

THAT IS THE STARK CHOICE.

Individually, we all eventually will have to give account for our decision on this, when we are called, in the Courts of Heaven, to account for our life and decisions. There is no escaping this, regardless of one’s belief’s
As a community and society, this coming month, we will hear strong convictions being expressed on both sides, including my own, to influence your decisions on this vital issue. I will be earnestly praying our country will not take the wrong direction, by allowing for the introduction of abortion. If we were to do so, Ireland would be the first country in history – where the people in a Referendum, voted to introduce abortion.
If we keep abortion OUT, we will continue to have a lot of work to do.

Christians of conviction, have a proven track record in terms of IMPROVING HUMAN RIGHTS. Here are prime examples
– William Wilberforce, and the abolition of Slavery
– William Booth and The Salvation Army, in the elimination of child prostitution
– Mother Theresa, and the alleviation of the poverty of children in India
– Martin Luther King in advancing Civil Rights in the southern States of USA

Please, dont delay in getting involved in canvassing and campaigning to continue the HUMAN RIGHTS of UNBORN CHILDREN in Ireland. In one month’s time, the decision will be made. Please GOD – let it be to PROTECT these children, NOT TAKE AWAY their HUMAN RIGHT TO LIFE

Lawyers Speak Out

“The proposal to withdraw the sole existing constitutional right from unborn human beings is “profoundly unjust

Repeal of right to life ‘profoundly unjust’ – 100 lawyers

This week, 100 Lawyers, incl Judges, Barristers, Solicitors and others in the Legal Profession came together and signed a document stating their serious concerns over the Governments proposals to Repeal the 8th Amendment.

You can read further what they had to say and how it was reported in
– the Irish Times
– the Irish Catholic

The Sanctity of Human Life – Radio Programme Podcasts – Real Stories 

This week’s Programme includes the personal story of a young woman who had an abortion in the UK, where she was living at the time and the devastating effect it had upon her life, and her journey in the 12x years since then, when I interviewed her in her home in the west of Ireland.

In the Fifth Programme of this six-part series, (this week) the subtitle of this programme is,”What Might Be the Impact of an Abortion?” We explore the following topics:

  • We’ll look thoughtfully into the impact that abortion can have upon women. We’ll hear a real-life story, as well as some anecdotal evidence.
  • We’ll also look at situations of abortion regret, the wounded soul; and how some have found hope and healing.
  • The hidden pain of Ireland: the symptoms of abortion regret.

Protecting The Lives Of The Next Generation Of Human Beings

This is a Life and Death Issue

There is no getting around it. The life of a human being is at stake, when an abortion is being considered.

This is the most fundamental issue in this debate – i.e. is the unborn child a human being?

– if your answer is YES – then how you treat that person – is a profoundly important issue. All your subsequent actions will demonstrate your respect for the dignity of this human life, formed in the image of God.

– if your answer is NO – then, in your view, at what stage do they become a ‘human being’ ? what changes them into a human being ? – at what stage in their development. ?

Last week, we featured an Article in the Irish Times in which Professor Eamonn Mc Guinness commented upon the 8th Amendment, and some myth’s that needed to be challenged.

In this YouTube Video, Prof Mc Guinness and a number of Consultant Obstetricians and GP’s speak about the humanity of the unborn child, and what the child is like at 12 weeks.

  • The story of Tina, who at 18 found herself pregnant and alone–yet she went on to raise her son (who is now a dad himself).
  • Compelling, real-life stories of how families with people who have special needs have profoundly benefited by having them in their family.
