Pro-life Irish nurses, doctors and midwives will be forced to participate in abortions

The dream of the pro-abortion left is not only to have abortion on demand. They also want four more things: 1) that pro-life medical personnel be forced to participate in it, 2) that pro-life taxpayers be forced to fund it, 3) that pro-life companies be forced to cover it in their insurance plans, and 4) that speech critical of abortion be silenced.

Here’s the latest from Ireland, reported by Life News:

Abortion politics are nearing a boiling point in Ireland as hundreds of doctors, nurses and midwives say pro-abortion politicians have repeatedly ignored their concerns.

Parliament is getting close to passing a radical pro-abortion bill that would legalize abortion for any reason up to 12 weeks of pregnancy and up to six months in a wide variety of circumstances. It would force taxpayers to pay for abortions and force Catholic hospitals to provide them. The bill also strictly limits conscience protections for medical professionals like them.

Government leaders want medical workers to be ready to begin aborting unborn babies Jan. 1, 2019, but the medical community is pushing back.

The Irish Examiner reports about 500 nurses and midwives signed a petition to Health Minister Simon Harris urging him to support better conscience protections. They said they are afraid of being forced out of their profession because they do not want to participate in the killing of unborn babies.

[…]The letter comes just a few days after dozens of doctors stormed out of an emergency meeting about the abortion legislation. They said political leaders have been ramming through the bill without consulting the medical community or giving it ample time to prepare. Many doctors also fear being forced to help abort unborn babies against their consciences.

“Ireland is one of the only countries where abortion services will be through GPs [general practitioners], it is usually through clinics. In most countries patients self-refer to clinics,” said Dr. Illona Duffy, an OB-GYN.

“GPs will be left dealing with this complicated process. This is being done without consultation and without taking our concerns into consideration,” she said.

If you remember, here in America, Obama tried to force Christian-owned companies like Hobby Lobby to cover drugs that cause abortions (after conception has already occurred). He was only defeated when he lost at the Supreme Court.

During Trump’s first two years, pro-life bills were introduced in the House:

  • Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R.4712)
  • Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36)
  • Disapproval of Title X Funds for Planned Parenthood (H.J.Res. 43)
  • No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017 (H.R. 7)

And in the Senate:

  • Paul Amendment to defund Planned Parenthood
  • Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 2311)

But Democrats voted against them.

What should we expect from the Democrats once they take over the House of Representatives? Well, one of the first things they will do is vote to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which prevents U.S. taxpayer money from being used to fund abortions. Democrats are extreme on abortion policy, but that’s what you get when you make abortion legal, and then hand the reins of power to Democrats.

We will never see pro-life bills come out of the House of Representatives, now that the Democrats are in control.

  1. It’s apparently no longer sufficient to marginalize, censor, or flaunt in the face of those opposed to abortion on demand, the homosexual lifestyle, and same sex unions. It’s now moved to “you will accept and comply with this”, and further “you will celebrate this”. If a Muslim was forced to watch a pig being butchered, or even forced to ingest said pork, there’d be major pushback from the liberals, and ensuing violence most likely.

  2. Reblogged this on Brandon J. Adams and commented:
    A somber note today from Wintery Knight’s blog. As emotionally taxing as it is, we have a duty – to the unborn – to stay abreast of this stuff. May God help our country.


  3. The child sacrificers are also making progress on silencing speech. More sidewalkers are being arrested on false charges – one was arrested for breaking a deathscort’s umbrella with his head – this actually went to trial, which was a victory in and of itself for the pro-aborts:
    Buffer zones are on the rise internationally too.
    When a person embraces the execution of an innocent defenseless little child, regardless of location, then there is no end whatsoever to what that person can justify. If they can’t even get “don’t kill the babies” right, then there really is no stopping them from doing anything they want to do to those who get in their way.
    Look for much more from these barbarians. I had predicted that the Dems would perform a “live” abortion on the stage of their DNC in 2016, and while I was wrong, they did have a woman “shout her abortion pride” there in a speech. That is fairly close, if not as graphic. These people are rapidly being turned over to their delusions.
    We really cannot expect those who embrace killing babies at the rate of 15,000 per week to not commit violence in other areas of their lives. We have already seen the Left adopt violence – with some success. Abortion abolitionists will have to make the same calculation that slavery abolitionists once made as the situation becomes “hotter.”

  4. Lord Jesus, You are bigger than all of this we agree with Your mighty plans for stopping this atrocity. Rise up godly men and women in politics to carry out Your will. Amen.


  5. I also argue even from a neutral point of neither right nor wrong in abortion. But do you really want anyone performing a surgery on you that absolutely does not want to do it

    A surgery is highly precise and has risks to being with let alone of the surgeon has a moral struggle during the procedure. If someone is harmed or killed in the procedure they will want to sue the doctor didn’t even want to do the procedure.

    It is how crazy hownthe left get on all topics. You must comply with us, but when things go wrong you are responsible.


  6. That’s axiomatic. In everything, what they demand they want participation. That’s bullyism and terrorism 101A. Make people do what they know is wrong, and you change their hearts, causing the mind to die. Not all, but many. I suppose this is what happened to many of our politicians and activists. They died inside, then were supported by the bullies who did this to them.
