Ireland's high court asserts rights of the unborn
Aug 06, 2016
The high court of The Republic of Ireland is now going against the flow of “civilized” countries by giving rights of the unborn and treating them as real human beings instead of insignificant pieces of flesh.
An Irish High Court judge has ruled that unborn children have all the rights of “born” children under the Irish constitution and law.
Meanwhile, the governor of Illinois is being sued for forcing doctors to promote abortions against their beliefs.
The governor of Illinois on Friday got sued for signing into law a plan that includes provisions to force doctors to promote abortion – even if they have religious objections to the procedure.
The lawsuit was filed by officials with the Alliance Defending Freedom on behalf of the Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford, Area Pregnancy Care Center, Dr. Anthony Caruso and others.
It names Gov. Bruce Rauner and the state’s secretary of its Department of Financial & Professional Regulation, Bryan Schneider.
“No state should attempt to rob women of the right to choose a pro-life doctor by forcing pro-life physicians and entities to make or arrange abortion referrals. What’s even worse is that Illinois did this by amending a law designed specifically to protect freedom of conscience,” ADF Senior Counsel Matt Bowman said in a prepared statement.
