Tens of thousands attending the Rally for Life cheered people with disabilities and their families in Dublin today, as they heard that unborn babies with a disability should receive special protection and support, and not become targets for abortion. Gardai estimated that the crowd swelled to between 25,000 – 30,000, almost double the expected attendance, as it marched through the city centre, with the messages that #everylifematters and that the Irish people are #prolifeandproud.
Organisers also vowed to ensure that pro-life voters would make their views heard in the ballot box at the next general election, which will take place before March 2016.
Those attending the Rally for Life, which marched from Parnell Square to the Dail, held posters supporting the ‘Every Life Matters’ theme of this year’s Rally, and said that legalising abortion on disability grounds is the worst possible form of discrimination.
