A United Pro Life Vigil is to take place in Dublin next Tuesday (December 4) at 4:30pm at the Dáil. The vigil will bring together people from a range of groups, and individuals who support a pro-life ethos.
“We are asking as many people as possible who consider themselves pro-life to come forward for this event,” Claire Moore from the Pro Life Campaign (PLC), one of the organisers of the event, told ciNews.
“We will stand together in respect for life in a peaceful atmosphere,” she added.
Ms Moore admitted that it might be difficult for people to make it to Dublin on a Tuesday for the 4:30pm vigil but appealed to the public to do just that.
“We are asking people to make a special effort at such a crucial time,” she said.
So far they have been encouraged by the response the initiative has gained. “People are making great efforts to be free to come,” she said.
The organisers are expecting groups from around Ireland, and are coordinating buses travelling to the capital. Those organising buses from outside the Dublin, should notify Clare at (087) 266 8702 or Katie (087) 702 0255 and they will pass on the information about the buses to others in the area wishing to attend. The vigil is due to last one hour, from 4:30pm to 5:30pm on Tuesday.
