The Pro-Life Campaign has welcomed the passing of a motion in Kerry County Council calling on the Government not to take any action which could lead to change or repeal of the 8th Amendment.
The motion was brought by Cllr John Joe Culloty who claimed the government should provide more support rather than “pander to a liberal agenda”.
Cllr Toireasa Ferris said she could not support the motion, describing it as “illogical” as it was “calling on the government, not to take any action, that would result in change”.
The motion went to a vote and was passed by a majority of 10 to 1, five councillors abstained from the vote and seventeen were absent.
Cora Sherlock of the Pro Life Campaign welcomed the move, she said that the councillors acknowledged human beings, born or unborn, should have their rights protected in law.
