Northern Ireland’s leading pro-life group Precious Life launch their Annual Pro-Life Roadshow in Enniskillen and Derry City on Saturday 7th August. The week-long Roadshow will then visit other towns across Northern Ireland. Precious Life say that with the latest push from Westminster to force Stormont to fully commission abortion in Northern Ireland, their Roadshow will bring the pro-life message directly to people on the streets.
Changes to abortion laws took effect last year after Westminster forced abortion on Northern Ireland through Section 9 of the ‘NI Executive Formation Act’ while the Assembly was still collapsed in 2019. But since the Stormont Assembly has been up and running again, the full commissioning of abortion has been stalled due to disagreement within the five-party executive. However, in July, the Westminster Government directed Stormont’s Department of Health to fully commission abortion in Northern Ireland. The Department has admitted in their latest figures that 1556 babies have already been killed by abortion since March 2020.
Director of Precious Life Bernadette Smyth said, “The aim of our Annual Pro-Life Roadshow is to educate the public on the humanity of the unborn child and expose the true horror of abortion. The Roadshow’s focus this year will be promoting our ‘REPEAL SECTION 9 Campaign’ – giving people the opportunity to sign our petition calling on our political representatives to overturn the unjust abortion law forced on us. The Westminster Parliament broke all principles of democracy and devolution when it forced abortion on Northern Ireland without the consent of its people.
“Now that Westminster is forcing Stormont to fully commission abortion in Northern Ireland, our REPEAL SECTION 9 Campaign is all the more urgent. On the Roadshow, we will also expose the politicians in Northern Ireland who support Westminster’s abortion law allowing the killing of a baby in the womb, for any reason, right up to the moment of birth.”
The dates and Locations for Precious Life’s Pro-Life Roadshow are:
Saturday 7th August ENNISKILLEN & DERRY CITY
Tuesday 10th August – BANGOR
Wednesday 11th August – WARRENPOINT

Bernadette Smyth concluded, “Our Roadshow will bring the pro-life message directly to people on the streets this week. And in the coming weeks we will step up our REPEAL SECTION 9 Campaign to ensure the right to life and full legal protection is restored for all unborn babies in Northern Ireland.”
