More Than Half Of Irish Babies With Down Syndrome Are Already Killed In Abortions

Unborn babies with Down syndrome in Ireland are being aborted at an extremely high rate, even though abortion is illegal in the country, according to new research data.

This week, the Irish Independent published data from the top three maternity hospitals in Ireland indicating that about 50 percent of women whose unborn babies test positive for Down syndrome have abortions.

The women traveled outside the country to abort their unborn babies, but if abortion activists have their way, soon they may not have to. On May 25, Ireland is scheduled to vote on whether to repeal its Eighth Amendment, which protects unborn babies’ right to life. Abortion activists, backed by some of the world’s richest men, are pushing the pro-life country to legalize abortion on demand.

Pro-lifers estimate that the Eighth Amendment has saved approximately 100,000 unborn babies’ lives from abortion.
