Dublin, Ireland, Dec 19, 2012 / 04:07 am
Pro-life leaders in Ireland have warned that the Fine Gael-run government's introduction of legislation to legalize abortion will have consequences for the party at the next election.
Rebecca Roughneen, a spokeswoman for Youth Defence, said Dec. 18 that her organization will make sure the Irish public does not forget that Prime Minster Enda Kenny and his party "broke the pro-life promise" they made before the 2011 election.
"The pro-life majority in Ireland will not tolerate this, and Youth Defence will make sure that every Fine Gael voter in the country is made aware of the party's political cowardice," she said. "They are bowing to the demands of the Labour Party and other pro-abortion advocates like Clare Daly, as opposed to their voters."
Niamh Ui Bhriain, spokeswoman for the Life Institute, also reminded the prime minister of his commitment.
