The State Will Fund Abortions.
The Minister for Health, Simon Harris, has confirmed that abortions will be paid by the State – but the State doesn’t have its own money, it has only the money it takes from taxpayers. That means that YOUR money will be used to pay for abortions in all circumstances, even if you are pro-life or believe that abortion should only be legal in certain circumstances.
And the best part? The Government have absolutely no idea how much any of this will cost you.LEARN MORE HERE or donate

Every Abortion Will Be One You Pay For.
The Minister for Health, Simon Harris, has confirmed that abortions will be paid by the State, but the State doesn’t have its own money, it only has the money it takes from taxpayers. That means that YOUR money will be used to pay for abortions in all circumstances, even if you are pro-life or believe that abortion should only be legal in certain circumstances.
The Irish Family Planning Association says an abortion can cost between €400 and €1,800, excluding travel or accommodation.
If removing the 8th amendment causes the same increase in the number of abortions as we have seen caused by the liberalisation of abortion in other countries, we will end up spending, per year, between €5,367,348 and €24,153,066, using 2016’s birth numbers as a base.
So the government which defunded a study into sexual violence against women, because €1 million was too much money, and who cut funding for the Rape Crisis Network of Ireland by 70% in 2015, is now asking the public to pay up to 24 times that amount to pay for abortions. And this at a time when the HSE is warning it may need an additional €881 million in 2018 just to continue operating.
No feasability study has been done on the abortion proposal. See PrimeTime Debate
The Health Service Under Simon Harris
In the first 2 weeks of 2018, 73 children were left waiting on trolleys.
In February of 2018 there were 502,482 people on the waiting list for treatment.
Dr Tom Ryan, president of the Irish Hospital Consultants Association has said that ‘we are effectively rationing life support’, and that patients are having life-saving surgeries delayed because of a lack of beds. ‘None of this is safe. We are being forced to take unnecessary risks with other people’s lives. The human cost of the bed shortage is enormous’.
There are now over 600 people on trolleys in Irish hospitals.
Doctors estimate 300 patients a year die due to the lack of beds.
Dr Emily O’Connor, president of the Irish Association of Emergency Medicine, has said that doctors are being forced to choose which of their patients could receive a bed, and so life-saving treatment, and which would not receive a bed, and so not receive lifesaving treatment.
Ireland has 3 hospital beds per 1,000, the OECD average is 4.7, with some countries, particularly Germany at 8.0, having much higher. [OECD]
There have been instances of patients missing out on life-saving organ transplants due to the lack of beds.
