Anti-Abortion Protests , follows report Babies born alive after Lethal injection

A study published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology which revealed that aborted Babies in the late stages of development are being Born Alive and left to die in Irish Maternity Hospitals following Lethal Injection has sparked outrage among Anti-Abortion Campaigners . 

The study by UCC which recorded the experiences of 10 Abortion Doctors in Irish maternity hospitals found that a method of killing called feticide similar to that used on Prisoners on America's Death row but without the pain relief in which the baby's heart is injected with potassium chloride to induce a fatal heart attack is being used here.

One Doctor is quoted as saying .. "I remember getting sick out in the corridors afterwards because I thought it was such an awful procedure and so dreadful". while another described it as "stabbing the baby in the heart" with others describing it as "brutal" and "awful" . 

Nationwide Anti Abortion Protests take place following report that babies born alive and left to die after abortions
  

In the study , Doctors said the situation has left them “begging people to help” when the baby is born alive following an abortion.
 

Protesters gathered outside the Constituency Offices of a number of Politicians including that of Sinn Fein Donegal TD Padraig Mac Lochlainn , Donegal Fine Gael TD Joe McHugh , Longford/westmeath Fianna Fail TD Robert Troy , Kildare Fianna Fail TD James Lawless and Galway Fine Gael TD Hildegarde Naughton . Other Protests included protests in Castlebar Mayo , Meath , Roscommon , Limerick , Tralee Kerry , Laois , Cork  and Dublin . 
 
The protests come in the lead up to the second anniversary of the Legalisation of Abortion in Ireland . The Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy Act 2018 was signed into law on 20 December 2018 , five days before Christmas . Figures released earlier this year showed that 6666 babies were aborted in the first year .

well done to each and every one and Beannachtai na Nollag to all

please remember those who died . Sunday marks the second anniversary of abortion in Ireland .
^
where are the grassroot members of the IFP , NP and ACI . why aren't they outside abortion clinics kicking up stink. every "day" that goes by 19 babies are killed in clinics and hospitals accross this bloody country. its a disgrace

I'm sick of all this Love Both rubbish , lets call it like it is , most people are killing their babies just because they couldn't be arsed to look after them and work or college is more important

theyre using abortion as a form of contraception and they want anti abortion people to pay for it
^
There is nothing "Progressive" about killing an unborn child . Nobody should have the Choice to kill someone else
^
The government refused an amendment at the time that would give babies pain relief before being killed . goes to show what a bunch of crazies we have running the place
^
anyone in clondalkin doing these protests . there's a few TD offices in clondalkin I'd like to protest outside .
^
baby lives matter . let them live . why are people so afraid of having babies . what has a baby ever done to anyone . let them live even if its with an adopted family at least they will be loved and cared for
^
AND THROUGH THE DARKNESS-AN ETERNAL LIGHT SHINES FOR GOODWILL OF MANKIND.

abortion was sold to us on the basis it was 'modern' even though places like North Korea have had it since the 1950s and before that communist russia in the 1920s . There is nothing good or modern about abortion , it is a holocaust of innocence . nothing good comes of it only more suffering

did anyone hear Dr lucy michael on newstalk , she wants people to check their relatives Thinking to make sure it conforms to her standards . The funny thing is she gave out about people spreading conspiracies but at the same time was spreading her own conspiracy about neo nazi type groups taking over irish society by using covid-19 issues without giving one shred of evidence to support her claim . lol
