The Student’s Union at the National University of Ireland (NUI) have adopted a pro-choice position on abortion.
The Proposition read thus, ” That NUI Galway Student’s Union adopt a Pro-Choice position, in support of the national campaign for full reproductive rights, which includes a woman’s right to abortion, whether elective or medically necessary. Furthermore, the Student’s Union will use every available measure to realise these rights on campus and nationally.”
What a chilling statement! There is no mention of the right to life of the unborn child and, note the use of the word “elective,” this sounds like abortion on demand! The pro-abortion lobby want these “rights” on campus, so do they envisage abortions being performed at the University by surgical methods or the use of abortifacients?
Many students are anti-abortion and this was borne out by the votes, which were as follows,
1,118 NO votes
2,478 YES votes.
In light of the above “victory” for the pro-abortion lobby, it appears that the NUI SU now aspire to transforming this “seat of learning” into an “abortuary.”
