At the start of October, the PLC’s Month For Life got underway.
The highlight of the month will be the Pro Life Campaign’s National Conference on 10 October at the RDS, Dublin 4.
Not surprisingly the focus of the National Conference will be “confidently and unapologetically” working to defend the 8th Amendment, Ireland’s Life Equality Amendment.
“How we achieve this will be the main theme of this year’s Pro Life Campaign National Conference,” says the invitation.
“With a General Election approaching, it is an especially important time for us to regroup and focus attentively on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.”
A range of activities and events have been organised throughout the month as well as a social media campaign where pro life supporters are invited to adopt the Month For Life avatar on Facebook and Twitter and share pro-life quotes.
Following the National Conference next weekend, there will be a meeting for pro life supporters in Galway on Tuesday 13 October at 10.30am at Carraroe, Co Galway.
The next day, 14 October, the PLC will host a public meeting in Portlaoise, Co Laois on ‘The Eighth Amendment – Ireland’s Life Equality Amendment’ at the Heritage Hotel Portlaoise at 7.30pm
Thursday 15 October, there will be a public meeting on the same topic, in Bray Co Wicklow at the Esplanade Hotel, Bray at 8pm.
Towards the end of the month, on Wednesday 28 October, ‘The Eighth Amendment – Ireland’s Life Equality Amendment’, will be discussed at a public meeting in Killarney, Co Kerry at the Malton Hotel at 7.30pm.
On Friday 30 October, PLC will hold a social evening for volunteers and friends in Dublin at 8pm, and the following Saturday, 7 November, the PLC academy will hold a Youth Human Rights Advocacy Workshop in Dublin from 10am – 4pm.
