Tens of thousands of people have taken part in the March For Their Lives in Belfast city centre to protest the Westminster Government’s abortion law, which would force abortion up to 28 weeks on Northern Ireland. The March was the last major public event before Westminster’s cruel and extreme law is set to be forced on Northern Ireland.
Precious Life, who organised the March, said they were “heartened and encouraged by the turnout, which showed that the pro-life majority of Northern Ireland are fighting back against this undemocratic law. The pro-life majority of Northern Ireland came out in their thousands today to say loud and clear ‘Abortion? Not In Our Name!'”
Bernadette Smyth of Precious Life said, “More than 20,000 people, from every tradition, attended the March because people are outraged that Westminster has hijacked our democratic process and has sought to impose abortion on Northern Ireland right up to 7 months and in certain circumstances, right up to birth.”
The March For Their Lives was organised by Precious Life, Life Institute, Youth for Life NI and a coalition of other pro-life groups.
