Irish archbishop cautions pro-life protesters
January 08, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin said he is “not a person personally for protest” as legal abortions begin in Ireland, and advised pro-life activists not to protest at the offices of general practitioners. The archbishop said that protests “can be legitimate,” but added that the government should “ensure that the various rights of people are protected.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).

Archbishop Martin faces daunting problems. Let's pray that he exercises strong leadership in the pro-life struggle. Decades of experience in the US show that it involves giving clear and public support to "at risk" women and to those who nonviolently challenge the law. Both are essential. Women deserve more than abortion, and the lives of the least little ones are at stake. Remember, too, that in the US political talk about keeping abortion "rare" is disingenuous.
