Protecting Homeless Women
The Pro Life Campaign says that homelessness involving pregnant women has reached crisis point. There are over 20 pregnant women sleeping rough in Dublin every night. The Pro Life Campaign has said that addressing the homeless crisis involving pregnant women must be a top priority for the new government. They also criticised the National Women’s Council of Ireland for their “obsessional focus on pushing abortion instead of seeking real and meaningful supports for women experiencing a crisis pregnancy.”
Miriam Gormally met with Lorraine Hennessy, a spokesperson for the Pro Life said there was a need to focus on fighting for safe and secure accommodation for homeless women rather than campaigning to repeal the 8th Amendment. Miriam asked her to explain more.
