Keep abortion out

• It is wrong to demand for yourself what you deny to another. You do not choose to be born – but you must be born to choose.

• Congratulations to all those thousands of people who graced the streets of Merrion Square, Dublin, on such a cold and bitter day. Twenty-two thousand – and more I saw – energetically, enthusiastically, vibrantly together, all for one and one for all, out against the Government and abortion on Saturday. The candlelights could be seen to infinity, gloriously blazing hope. The young, the old, the big and the bold were all out there, marching with a mission against abortion. They are to be admired as they stood up for their beliefs in their thousands and cannot be ignored.

We have got to continue and keep abortion out of Ireland. Enda Kenny made a false campaign promise to protect unborn babies. See how he tries to get out of it in order to stay in power. If he does not keep his promise, this will be his downfall. I'd be very wary of Eamon Gilmore, too, as he and his Labour Party are pro-abortion.

Continued protests must be made. It's our country! We must fight for our future generations, who indeed may be presidents, and powerful people. We cannot stand still or on the fence with this very serious issue.

One does not have to be Catholic, Protestant or Jew to engage in this anti-abortion campaign. One just has to be interested in human life and not the killing of babies. I said in my last letter on abortion that it's a long road that has no turning. Please don't let the Government bring in abortion – it will kill all of us if it comes in.
