Both in-person and online pro-life rallies will be held in Ireland this weekend amid a sharp rise in abortions in the country since the repeal of the Eighth Amendment.
Local “socially distanced” pro-life rallies will take place in cities throughout the country on July 3, while the national Rally for Life will take place online on July 4.
The Rally for Life’s website said that small, local rallies were an effective way to demonstrate against abortion in Ireland last year, when COVID-19 regulations prevented people from gathering in large numbers.
“This year, with the never-ending lockdown making a big Dublin gathering impossible for the second year in a row, ... pro-life leaders around the country are keen to make those local public events even more effective for 2021,” it said.
