On Friday May 18th, London Irish United For Life (LIUFL) will take part in a ‘Rallying Cry for a “No” vote in the Irish Abortion Referendum.

We will meet at The Scoop, Queen’s Walk SE12DB for 7pm. There will be a photoshoot with our banner on Tower Bridge. We are expecting to have support from lots of Irish people living in London and from others who are in favour of keeping the right to life of the unborn in the Irish Constitution.

This will be a huge show of solidarity with the #savethe8th #loveboth movement in Ireland one week before the referendum on May 25th.

‘London Irish United For Life’ is a group of Irish people living in Britain working to raise awareness among the Irish community in the UK of the importance of saving the 8th Amendment. We encourage eligible Irish citizens in the UK to return home and vote No to removing the 8th Amendment in the referendum. Our ‘Home to Vote No’ campaign has involved placing ads in Irish community papers, handing out leaflets at Irish sporting & cultural events, and liaising with university pro-life societies.

 

LIUFL’s spokeswoman Ms Laoise Ní Dhubhrosa: “We’re trying to save the 8th Amendment in the Irish Constitution that requires the State to guarantee the right to life of the unborn while allowing all life-saving care for women.”

“We are part of the Irish community living aboard and we’re asking Irish men and women to vote to save unborn children in Ireland from the injustice of abortion.”
