Call to 'Cherish All the Children Equally'

Thursday, 17 November 2016

A former Dungiven Sinn Fein Councillor is urging local residents, regardless of their political or religious backgrounds, to show their support for a new group aimed at protecting the rights of unborn children. The new All Ireland human rights organisation, Cherish All the Children Equally, of which Anne Brolly and her husband Francie have emerged as leading figures, will host a meeting in Owenbeg Centre of Excellence, Dungiven this Thursday, November 17 at 8pm.
Among the speakers at the event will be Sinn Fein TD Paedar Toibin who voted against his party's position on abortion. Joining him will be mums from the group 'Every Life Counts' who will share their stories as well as legal representatives who will be on hand to offer advice.
‘Cherish All the Children Equally' was formed to oppose the relaxation of abortion laws in the north and repeal of the Eighth Amendment of the Republic's Constitution which protects the right to life of the unborn.
