Life Issues – A Declaration of Equality

Life Issues – A Declaration of Equality
Article 40.3.3 is a declaration of equality and
respect for human life. It represents, at the very
foundations and substructure of our laws, a
conviction that all human life is worth cherishing
equally. To repeal this Article would leave unborn
children at the mercy of whatever permissive
abortion laws might be introduced in Ireland in the
future. We invite people of faith to pray earnestly
that Ireland will “choose life” and that the lives of
all women and their unborn children will always be
loved, valued, welcomed and respected in this
