Precious Life say “Civil Rights begin in the Womb” at Derry Commemoration March

05 October, 2018

Northern Ireland’s leading pro-life group Precious Life will attend the Civil Rights Commemoration March in Derry on Saturday 6th October. Precious Life say they will expose Sinn Féin’s “hypocrisy” in claiming to support civil rights while denying the fundamental right to life of unborn children.

The Commemoration March has been organised by Sinn Féin to mark the 50th anniversary of the historic Duke Street Civil Rights March in 1968.

Director of Precious Life Bernadette Smyth said, “Our message will be clear – ‘Civil Rights begin in the Womb.’ It is vital that we send Sinn Féin the clear message that we will not stand for the hypocrisy of their cruel and extreme abortion agenda. They claim they are marching for civil rights and equality. Yet Sinn Féin want to deny any equality or any rights for unborn children in Ireland.”

She added, “Sinn Féin campaigned for the removal of all legal protection for unborn babies in the Republic of Ireland with the repeal of the 8th amendment. And leading members of the Party recently signed a letter calling for the ‘decriminalisation’ of abortion in Northern Ireland, which would make it legal to kill babies in the womb right up to the moment of birth.
“Northern Ireland has seen enough bloodshed throughout ‘the Troubles’ following 1968, without now killing the most innocent and defenceless in society – our unborn children.”

Bernadette Smyth concluded, “On Saturday, we expect a large number of pro-life people from across Northern Ireland to attend the March and use their voices to speak out for the most fundamental right of all – the right to life. Women and their unborn children must be protected from the injustice, inequality, and brutality of abortion.”
