47 days to go…..Mass appeal…..Is the real reason Amnesty International Ireland won’t return the illegal money from U.S. based billionaire George Soros, because they’re in the red?

Just 47 days to go:

to Ireland’s referendum on abortion on May 25th when voters decide whether to repeal / remove the pro-life 8th amendment to the constitution which gives equal protection to mother and child, or to keep it.

THIS POST IS IN THREE PARTS:

(1): BACKGROUND TO THE PRO-LIFE CRISIS IN IRELAND:

(2): SR BRIEGE MCKENNA’S MASS APPEAL: FOR THE 8TH:

(3): TODAY’S POST:

IS THE REAL REASON THE IRISH BRANCH OF AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL WON’T RETURN THE ILLEGAL MONEY FROM U.S. BASED BILLIONAIRE GEORGE SOROS BECAUSE IT IS IN THE RED?

BACKGROUND: 

International Planned Parenthood: 

the umbrella body for abortion providers worldwide, seeks through its affiliates here, to introduce an extremely liberal abortion regime to Ireland. The Irish government is campaigning for a no questions asked unrestricted medical abortion regime to 12 weeks. Until recently, they proposed abortions with no upper limits i.e. to birth on mental / physical risk grounds with a two doctor model approach similar to the U.K. (the U.K. mental health risk ground has been responsible for 98% of almost 9 million UK social abortions to date and the two doctor UK model has been dispensed with long ago, with most abortions signed off on by doctors who do not see the woman until in theatre: please see our previous posts on this).

Down syndrome exemption?

The Irish government say babies are diagnosed with Down’s syndrome after 12 weeks. Therefore they will escape the unrestricted abortion limit to 12 weeks. The government also says they will be exempt from mid-trimester abortions as no ground for abortion of non-fatal disabililties will be permitted. Mid-trimester abortions will otherwise be permissible on mental / physical health risk grounds by two nominated doctors. However in Germany, there is equally no ground for abortion of Down’s babies, yet 9/10 Down’s babies are aborted under the mental health risk ground. The absence of a ground is meaningless without a ban while the mental health risk ground exists.

Last trimester Ban or is it?

Because of a recent drop in support in opinion polls, the Irish government cynically dropped the ‘no upper limit’ ……ahem….limit and now propose a ban on abortions above 24 weeks of pregnancy / viability. Exceptions to the new limit proposed include serious maternal life and health risks and fetal life limiting conditions, where babies may be still be aborted to birth. How ‘serious’ will be defined as opposed to mental and physical health risks for mid-trimester abortions is unclear but reassurances are given that babies will not be left to die.

Zero legal protection:

In any case if the 8th amendment goes / is repealed, there remains zero legal protection for the Irish unborn to birth following a recent Irish supreme court decision that stripped any remaining rights other than the right to life enshrined in the 8th. Recent attempts by the Irish government’s 2nd in command, Tánaiste Simon Coveney, to prevent further liberalisation of current government proposals including a possible reversion to the original ‘no upper limit’ scenario, failed miserably in the Irish parliament or ‘Dáil’ this past week on the grounds of being unconstitutional. Thus the door will be left wide open to this or future governments acting as they will. Having said that, a constitutional lawyer here has intimated that the total lack of constitutional protection to birth without the 8th in place, might permit a situation to unfold where any limitations in place could be challenged with nothing to underpin them.

A thorn in the side for years:

International planned parenthood’s juggernaut, has targeted Ireland’s pro-life laws for many years describing the 8th amendment as the ‘jewel in the crown’ for the pro-life movement in general. This targeting despite Ireland having one of the lowest maternal mortality rates in the world without abortion.

Money is involved at many levels. Consider the revenue of Planned Parenthood America in 2016 which was 1.4 billion US dollars alone. Consider a recent post on major abortion provider Marie Stopes U.K.’s bonus driven culture; (calling back women who’d already refused abortions to offer later appointments as a sales target) and consider yesterday’s post on the flooding of Irish pro-abortion organisations such as Amnesty International Ireland with foreign funds from George Soros amongst others, accepted and kept illegally. With a view to not only repealing the 8th amendment, but to specifically  target any remaining countries with restrictive abortion laws including Poland and Malta….

 

(2): SR BRIEGE MCKENNA’S MASS APPEAL:

REPARATION FOR IRELAND AND TO KEEP THE PRO-LIFE 8TH AMENDMENT.

Everyday, we promote Sr. Briege McKenna’s appeal for Masses to be said privately or publicly in parishes in reparation for Ireland’s turning from God and for protection of the 8th amendment. There is nothing greater than the Mass. (Sr. Briege has a worldwide apostolate of intercession for priests and healing ministry). In August last year in the Marian shrine, Knock, Ireland, she said, ‘if Ireland votes for abortion, Ireland is lost.’

Can you, with other parishioners organise one or more Masses / half-days / days of prayer with medically safe fasting in your parish between now and May 25th? 

Please let us know about your parish event or if you are going to have a  Mass said privately by emailing us at: massandfastforireland@gmail.com or go to our website: http://www.massandfastforireland.com/contact

Please consider getting Masses said locally where ever you are or through the following:

(a):  Aide to the Church in Need (Ireland): A.C.N. is an international organisation that helps the mission of the Church in some of the poorest and most dangerous places in the world……http://www.acnireland.org/masses or call 018377516 (0035318377516)

(3): TODAY’S POST:

IS THE REAL REASON THE IRISH BRANCH OF AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL WON’T RETURN THE ILLEGAL MONEY FROM U.S. BASED BILLIONAIRE GEORGE SOROS BECAUSE IT IS IN THE RED?

This following article dated May 2017 by Maeve Sheehan of the Independent newspaper suggests Amnesty International Ireland’s finances have not been in great shape. Amnesty has refused the Standards in Public Office’s demand that they return the money donated by George Soros to advance repeal of the pro-life 8th amendment on the basis that abortion is about “human rights”. But maybe they can’t return it so easily?

Amnesty workers to strike over cuts

The Irish branch of Amnesty International has run up a €1.3m deficit since the recession, despite attracting record numbers of paying members.

The rights ­organisation, which holds its annual conference this weekend, recorded a loss of €191,852 in 2015 and accumulated the €1.3m deficit over several years.

However, its donations and subscriptions received during the year increased by €136,000 to €2,786,000, as a result of a significant growth in its membership, according to the company’s accounts.

In a statement, Amnesty’s Irish branch said the structural deficits were due to restructuring the Irish organisation to “invest” in growth while maintaining “the highest possible standards” in its human rights work.

“The structural deficits accrued were as a result of this investment and were agreed with the full cooperation and support of the international secretariat,” the statement said. “Amnesty International Ireland also experienced tough economic times during the financial crash which exacerbated the deficit.”

Amnesty said it has seen a 63pc increase in fundraising income from individual members and donors. Work campaigning against Ireland’s abortion laws has resulted in the greatest increase in Amnesty’s membership.

One of its most high-profile campaigns was the marriage equality referendum, on which it spent €29,500 in 2015. Amnesty’s Irish branch also received €137,000 over two years from George Soros Open Society Foundations for its campaign on “sexual and reproductive rights”.

The director of Amnesty International Ireland, Colm O’Gorman, received a salary of just over €111,000 in 2015, according to the accounts.

Amnesty does not receive any State funding for its campaigns and relies mostly on subscriptions from individual members and less so from philanthropic foundations.

Amnesty has also been involved in the case of Ibrahim Halawa, who is 21, and from Firhouse, Dublin. He was arrested in Cairo in August 2013 during protests against the ousting of then president and Muslikm Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi and has remained in custody since.
