Friday May 25: Prayers for Ireland

Ireland votes today on a referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment to the Constitution. 

A Yes vote would remove all Constitutional protection for the baby in the womb. The Government has published the draft abortion law it would seek to introduce in its place. It would allow for abortion for any reason whatsoever up to 12 weeks; abortion up to approximately 6 months on unspecified mental health grounds, and beyond that point on other grounds. 

Ireland’s abortion law would end up being less restrictive than Britain’s.

Please pray for Ireland today.
