Reject late-term abortion in Ireland!
Late-term babies are being aborted in Irish hospitals.
This appalling practice must stop, and that's why CitizenGO and Family and Life are joining forces on this vital petition calling on Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly, TD, to introduce legislation to stop these gruesome procedures now!
Please sign and share this urgent petition, today...be part of a positive push to defend as many unborn lives as we possibly can!
According to a study published by the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in September, 2020, the barbaric "foeticide" method of abortion is being used in Irish hospitals.
This awful practice involves injecting a chemical into a baby's heart in order to stop her heartbeat, effectively ending the baby's life. This lethal step is then followed with a drug that activates the birth process, resulting in the expulsion of the baby’s body.
In cases where the injection is not successful in the death of the baby, the child is, in fact, born alive.
One doctor in an Irish hospital described the process as similar to “stabbing the baby in the heart.” Words such as “brutal” and “awful” were also common while another doctor said, “I remember getting sick out in the corridor afterwards because I thought it [foeticide] was such an awful procedure and so dreadful.”
Moreover, the doctors were “unclear as to who will look after these babies,” if the baby survives the abortion.
While the early-term, chemical abortions given by many Irish GPs are bad enough, these late-term hospital abortions add another layer of brutality into the mix.
Of course, any abortion goes squarely against the Hypocratic Oath in which doctors swear to do no harm.
And, indeed, Irish doctors did not train and study so hard to harm their patients, much less to treat patients in such a brutal and degrading manner.
The appalling practice of late-term abortion must stop! Please sign and share this petition, calling on Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly, TD, to urgently introduce legislation that puts an immediate halt to this brutal practice. Thank you!
