Dublin Rally for Life a smash success

Saturday’s pro-life rally in Dublin was a smash success, with organizers estimating a turnout of more than 7,000 - more than double the attendance at the last Dublin rally in 2009, reports LifeSiteNews.com.

Organizers of the All-Ireland Rally for Life said that the huge turnout served as a warning to the majority Fine Gael party that plans by the minority Labour Party to introduce legislation to legalize abortion in Ireland are unacceptable to the majority of Irish people.

The rally was composed of more young people than ever before and included the Bishop of Derry, Séamus Hegarty. Participants began at the Garden of Remembrance in Parnell Park and marched down O’Connell Street, with open-top busses, music and balloons lending a festive atmosphere; the march concluded at Dáil Éireann, where participants heard from former MEP, Dana Rosemary Scallon.

Scallon told the cheering crowd that the Constitution belonged to the people and that the politicians were there to serve the people, not to decide for them, or to allow Europe to foist abortion on them. There were calls of “Dana for President” from the crowd as she spoke, in reference to the upcoming Presidential election in Ireland, due to take place in October.
