Strengthening our Position

Building Up


It is beyond any doubt now that there is widespread support for the 8th Ammendment. There are challenges to be faced ahead. Yet – we are united in VALUING the bulwark of the 8th Ammendment – which the Supreme Court ruled last week, is the only legal defense the unborn child has.
Sadly, that defense is needed against the wishes and intent of the Government of his country. It is a very good reason why we must VOTE NO and not hand over responsibility to politicials – who by their actions deny even the existence of the life of the unborn baby. They clearly cannot be trusted with the responsibility to act in the best interests of the most vulnerable of all people – the unborn children of Ireland.

Well done to all 100,000+ who attended the Rally for Life in Dublin last Saturday and for the great event that it was.

Speaking with colleagues afterwards – it was clear that the Rally was conducted in the right spirit and was widely supported across the whole spectrum of society. Thanks you for making the effort to be there.

Thank you for your great support and willingness to GET OUT THERE and make your voice heard and your views known.

Doctors for Life Ireland

I am enclosing a link to the website of Doctors for Life Ireland – whose content on their site includes a
Presentation made by Dr Deirdre Gleeson on “The 8th Amendment and Medical Care” (in Ireland).
It makes compelling reading.
These are experts who presented to the Citizens Assembly.
Their site really warrants a visit

The Start of Life 

Latest Research has shown that there is a ‘flash of light’ (zinc particles!) emitted when the process of new life begins
Click on the icon opposite to see a brief YouTube video describing this.

There can be no doubt that LIFE is HAPPENING, and science has been able to show that at the point of CONCEPTION, from which point DNA is formed of the new person (not the mother, nor the father, but a new person) – That new person is starting their journey, which only ends when they die.

We are on the Road again

A Heart-Felt Response from the Rally-Cry Meeting’s

On the last “Rally-Cry” Meeting we had in Bray on Thursday – a gentleman raised his hand asking to make a comment. He stood up and said that he was deeply moved by the issues discussed and rather than having just a willing heart and concrete feet and legs
– HE HAD MADE A DECISION TO TAKE A WEEKS HOLIDAYS – AS SOON AS HE COULD ARRANGE – AND SPEND THAT WHOLE WEEK – CANVASSING TO SAVE LIVES.

Recognising, as we all do, that babies lives are at stake and the future well-being of the country is at stake – he was willing to make this effort in the limited time remaining.

It was an inspiring moment for us all. Let us all follow this example, of ‘leaving nothing behind’ and ‘doing all we can’

Consultant Dr Michael F. O’Hare
Maternal Mortality – Factual Information

Consultant Obstetrician and Gynacologist – Michael F. O’Hare MD FRCPI FRCOG – Chairman of the Joint Institute of Obstreticians & Gynaecologists / HSE Working Group on Maternal Mortality – writing in the Irish Independent on Monday points out that Maternal Mortality in Ireland is noticably better in Ireland than the UK (6.5 v’s 8.76 per 100,000 pregnancies) – where abortion on demand is available.

As we have repeatedly stated and Dr O’Hare confirms, Ireland is one of the safest countries in the world to be pregnant, a point emphasised by Consultant Obsterician and Gynacologist (Ret’d) – Dr Edmund Ritchie, in the first part of our Radio Programme this week

Protecting Human Rights – Come out and show your support

Taking Away their Human Rights

I was reminded of the value of Human Rights when watching the film “Selma” over the weekend, about Dr Martin Luther King’s fight in 1965, a year after he was awarded the Nobel Peace Price, and a year before his assassination, where people marched for the Human Rights of black people in Selma, Alabama – seeking the right to vote.

Our Government are seeking in this Referendum – to TAKE AWAY the HUMAN RIGHTS of unborn children, as the Supreme Court ruled last month, that other than the 8th Amendment, and unborn child in Ireland has NO HUMAN RIGHTS – until they are born.

It is hard to believe that such a PROPOSAL – could ever gain traction in a civilised society

We cannot deny the humanity of our unborn babies

The Miracle of Life

During our presentations this week, this video was played. It is so beautiful, describing the growth journey a baby takes during the nine months of pregnancy. I think you’ll like it. ….


(click here to run the video from YouTube)
This is the Medical Alliance for the 8th website.

They simply comment on the value of the 8th Amendment. (Click here to bring you to their site)

Medical Alliance for the 8th

Opposite is a link to the website of Medical Alliance for the 8th. As you can see they make compelling reading – especially for Health Professionals.
They also address the issue of Conscientious Objection, and how important an issue this is, and how difficult it could make life in health-care in Ireland if the 8th Amendment is repealed.


Dr Siobhan Crowley speaks briefly in this YouTube clip on the humanity of the Unborn baby (Click here to see)

Dont Ever Give Up! 

This is the week of the RESURRECTION! It is a week for Christians to remember, celebrate, and look up – to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, in HEAVEN, WHO is taking this journey with us, and HE is our SOURCE of Strength, and Helps us when we are weak.

I am sure that HE is Helping us on our journey in these days, and will Help us

Click on the icon below. You will see how great the support of a father can be, and I am always moved by this heroic story of a father and son crossing the line together.

It reminded me of a fathers love shown by Dr Billy Graham to his daughter, which she told at his funeral last week. (click here to see it)

Working to Build Momentum

Building Up

Dear <<First Name>>,

Do please join us

(click here to go the page to Register)

The march forward of time continues, and I want to commend to the Pro-Life Rallies listed here. They are just as important as the March in Dublin on March 10th, as they will be the last push forward – with the Referendum about 7 weeks after the Regional Rallies and 2 weeks from the Dublin Rally.

It will be an important moment, as we will need as many people as we can muster to come out and speak up for the UNBORN CHILD.

After May 25th – All the talking will be over, and the decision made. Your voice, and your action matters – a lot.

” … we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight ….” 

So it seemed when God had called His people to go up and spy-out the land. Yet Caleb and Joshua had Faith that God was on their side and they would succeed. Caleb and Joshua were proven right.

We are called to live by Faith (in God) not by sight (trusting in what we see and hear now). I am hoping you are doing so today and will continue to look up (to God HIMSELF) Who is on our side in this battle, and will help us against the present day giants that we are facing (our own Government and the Media and well resourced external agencies)

Keep up the good fight. It will be well worth it.  Keep yourself in prayer. Act as the Lord Guides you

I had the opportunity this week to read the informative article  from Feb 4th ’18, by Kim Bielenberg in the Irish Independent on the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs Katherine Zappone. It outlines just how important repeal of the 8th Amendment is to Dr Zappone, and how it was a condition of her involvement in Government. It is no surprise – given her deeply held beliefs outlined in her 1991 book “The Hope for Wholeness : A Spirituality for Feminists” (available right now on Amazon.co.uk), in which she makes it very clear her non-Christian views of spirituality, and is allied with those who believe that abortion is a womans right and has sacramental value to it.
(You can read the full article by clicking here)It illustrated the need for earnest prayer on this issue, as there are a lot of powerful unseen elements in play here

We are on the Road again – Update

A Week of Big Decisions

View this email in your browser

Big Decisions

This is a week of big decisions, which will place a certain complexion on the future of our society for the generation to come. We are most certainly at a cross-roads, as I mentioned last week.
There are two really big decisions this week – One for you and I to make, the other is made by others

(1) The March in Dublin on Saturday 10th – A Decision for You and I – Will you come?

(2) The Supreme Court on the Rights of the Unborn – A Decision by the Judges

Attending last years Rally
@ Merrion Square

Pro-Life March in Dublin This Saturday – 10th March @ 2pm 
Parnell Square to Merrion Square

Will you be there ?

There has been a clear sense of URGENCY leading up to this Rally to “Protect the 8th”. What is clear now from the Judiciary, is that without the 8th Amendment – the unborn will have no Constitutional Protection (YIKES!)

So it is URGENT – that we “RALLY” to protect the unborn – THE MOST VULNERABLE OF ALL HUMANS.
Please dont stay at home – COME. It all matters, and you will be in the best of company – with many others who seek to build a better future for Mothers (and Fathers) and their unborn children.


Get rid of the 8th = Get rid of the Constitutional Right to Life
Only if you are born will you have Constitional Protection
This crystalises the irrefutable value of the 8th Ammendment
The Supreme Court Speaks on the Rights of the Unborn

The seven judges unanimous ruling (today) found that the unborn doesn’t have Constitutional rights other than those afforded in the Eighth Amendment

“The High Court determination that the unborn is a child for the purposes of Article 42A is also reversed,” (Ed – i.e – does not have the Constitutional benefits of being defined as a “child”) Chief Justice Frank Clarke said.

So the Doctrine of the State in it’s Appeal has been upheld – that only once you are born – then you have Constitutional protection. Till then you DONT. Thus Abortion is so easy to justify, as according to this Doctrine – the unborn child is not a ‘person’. If the State has it’s way – abortion on demand is coming. We are asked to trust Politicians with what this definition will mean, forever after.

What the Supreme Court are saying that if Article 40.3.3 is removed – then the right to life is also removed (OUCH!) It certainly crystalises the VALUE and NEED for the 8th AMMENDMENT
By-The-Way. Once a woman’s egg is fertilised, a new DNA is formed from the mother and the father, and new life has begun (a matter I will address in later messages in more detail) – Life has begun …..

PLEASE HELP !

Till next week – every blessing to you and your family

A Momentous Decision Lies Ahead

View this email in your browser

Reaching Out – To Protect Unborn Children 

During the night of February 9th/10th I was awoken twice around 4am, by the ‘sound’ of a baby’s hand grasping in the dark, for help. and on each occasion I reached out – The tiny baby grasped my finger, seeking my help. The imagery was clear to me – that the child was ‘crying-out’ for help to anybody willing to give that help. I was willing. The trusting innocent child took my hand.

WIll you join us in reaching out your hand to protect the most vulnerable of all people in our society – our children & grandchildren.

It is defies all reason to state that before their natural delivery date – the mother of the child is not expecting a baby! Science confirms she is. Ask any of the 65.909 mothers who gave birth in Ireland in 2015 – if they were expecting a baby or not.

TThis is a KEY moment in Irish history. As a country, and as an island, we have not adopted the terrible practice of other western countries – of having abortion as a part of ‘normal life’ in our country.

Ireland is a UNIQUE country. We care for the poor and needy and distressed as part of our social fabic and natural culture. 13.5% of the population have some form of disability (643,131 in 2016 Census) and we look after them very well. (Remember the Special Olympics)

We know that it is by giving to others, (especially those who are vulnerable), that we receive, and we Irish people intuitively know and practice this very well.

It's almost back to school time pic for Aug eZine

Some Facts worth Considering

(1) No country in history has introduced abortion into their country through a vote of the people (Referendum)
(2) Jesus said ….
(3) The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
(4) The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
(5) Lisbon Treaty – 2009
(6) Mother Theresa said ….

  • IF we as a nation and a people – were to vote to introduce abortion into this country – by accepting the Governments will to repeal the 8th Amendment, – we would be the first nation in history, where the PEOPLE voted to INTRODUCE Abortion. All previous cases of abortion introduction have been approved through Parliaments and /or advanced through the Judiciary.
  • Jesus said (John 10:10) “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly
  • The Universal Declaration of Human Rights(1948) states in Article 3 – “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.”
  • The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) states in its Preamble “the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth”,”
  • Ireland got a ‘Special Exemption’ (Protocol No 35) in the Lisbon Treaty (2009) for Article 40.3.3 – as it was clearly understood then the Right to Life of the unborn was a Core Value in Ireland
  • If you take away the Right to Life – all other ‘Rights’ are meaningless
  • Mother Theresa – speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast in 1994 said “The Greatest Destroyer of Love and Peace is Abortion. The child is God’s gift to the family. Each child is created in the special image and likeness of God for greater things — to love and to be loved.”

Reaching out to Chrisitans
to become engaged
in the Campaign

The Sacredness of Life – Get Involved. Speak-Up!

These past few weeks, speakers from the Love-Both / Pro-Life Campaign, the Director of Evangelical Alliance Ireland – Nick Park, and I have been visiting and speaking at gathering of church folks and Pro-Life folks in a number of centres around the country. These are continuing and it is inspiring to see the level of interest there is in both the importance of the 8th Amendment, and how people might get involved.

Director Nick has done a magnificent job of addressing the Human Rights issues of the 8th Amendment, which he covers in detail in both is books. The Pro-Life Campaign speakers have outlined their involvement since 1981 and how many lives have been savedsince 1994, and how to get involved in the campaign to retain the BENEFITS of the 8th Amendment. I have been closing the meetings with an exhortation to pray, to act and to get involved – for good reason. We have been to eight main centres to deliver this message in February an in March we plan to get to a further ten locations. If you’d like to know more – just contact me.

PLEASE HELP !

Till next week – every blessing to you and your family

Preparing for the Referendum on the 8th Amendment

View this email in your browser
It's almost back to school time pic for Aug eZine

Protecting Mothers and their Unborn Child 

We are now well into one of the most important decision making periods in our Irish history, because it is now a time when a decision will be made by the Irish people, on the issue of the protections provided in the Eight Amendment to the Irish Constitution – to two very important people – effecting all our futures,
(1) the mother and
(2) the baby in the womb of his/her mother.

Both are guaranteed the Right to Life.
Take away that Right and other Rights cannot apply.

I hope you will bear with us during the next four months during which this critical issue is being debated and we clearly take the side of the Right to Life.

Ep.4 of 6 – Alive and Living in Ireland

  • A mixture of stories regarding the people with special needs around us,
  • The comparisons between Ireland and the UK regarding abortion
  • 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).
