"A Tragedy of Historic Proportions"

I fail to understand how anyone can celebrate the death of babies, plus the mothers who will suffer from post-abortion trauma. From Life Site:
Irish citizens voted to legalize abortion on Friday, ending Ireland’s legacy as one of the world’s most pro-life nations. The votes are still being officially counted, but the pro-abortion campaign is declaring victory and pro-lifers are calling this a “tragedy of historic proportions.”

The 8th amendment did not create a right to life for the unborn child – it merely acknowledged that such a right exists, has always existed, and will always exist,” the pro-life Save the 8th campaign said in a statement. “What Irish voters did yesterday is a tragedy of historic proportions. However, a wrong does not become right simply because a majority support it.”

Ireland has one of the lowest maternal mortality rates in the world. The Eighth Amendment of its Constitution guaranteed equal rights for pre-born babies and their mothers. Repealing the Eighth Amendment was a decades-long goal of the abortion movement. The Irish voted by 67 percent to add the Eighth Amendment to their constitution in 1983, making the Emerald Isle a uniquely safe place for pre-born babies in contrast to the rest of the West’s liberal abortion regimes.

There have been five previous votes on repealing the Eighth Amendment, all of which failed. One was in 1983, three were in 1992, and one was in 2002. More people in Dublin, where the majority of residents supported the “repeal” campaign, voted in this referendum than in 2015 on same-sex “marriage” and in their general election. (Read more.)

This is a catastrophe. I am convinced the Irish have no clue what they have brought upon themselves.

In the time of Troubles, the enemy was clearly the British and anti-Catholicism. The Irish valiantly banded together and preserved their Faith for centuries, even when threatened with death.

Today, the enemy is the devil himself. And instead of remembering their Faith and wearing it like armor, the Irish threw it away and chose to join the devil, and putting their support to the horrific agenda of evil, sacrificing their own children.

It is true that we in America did the same. But we are not majority Catholics as the Irish are. And we Catholics are still fighting to remove abortion from our country.

God help us, and the Irish.
