Thousands gathered in Dublin on Saturday to protest Ireland’s abortion laws, as well as to celebrate the overturning of Roe v. Wade in the United States.
Thousands of people from across Ireland took to the streets of Dublin on Saturday to protest the country’s abortion system, which several NGOs have been pressing for further liberalization after the termination of pregnancy was initially legalized in the country in 2018.
The annual Rally for Life protest – which has not taken place since 2019 due to the strict COVID restrictions in place in the country – also saw attendees celebrate the recent coup d’état of the Roe v. Wade in the United States, a ruling one admits again that it is the individual American states that have the power to make their own rules regarding abortion.
Start near Ireland Garden of Remembrance – Monument faithful To ‘all who gave their lives for Irish freedom’ – the rally took place on O’Connell Street in Dublin waving placards and chanting slogans such as ‘Roe v. Wade has turned. Come to Ireland, it’s your turn’.

For example, the Abortion Rights Campaign – a group that has also been involved in condemn Alleged ‘transphobia’ in Irish media – Criticize The waiting period as a barrier to abortion in Ireland, which she says will delay the “care” of women.
However, pro-life politicians responded to this claim, saying that waiting 3 days protects lives, allowing many women to reconsider their decision to have an abortion.
“…There are 2,500 children alive today as a result of the 3-day waiting period,” Pedar Toibin previously said. arguesaying the figure could be arrived at by extrapolating the figures obtained by TD colleague Carol Nolan via a parliamentary question.
