Celtic Connections - 07/20/2019 - Betrayal of Unborn Children
Title: The Betrayal of Unborn Children in Northern Ireland
Host: Kathy Sinnott with guests, Fr. Patrick McCafferty, Bernadette Smyth, Dr Trevor Hayes, Bishop John Keenan, Paul Kyle and Joyce Higgins
In Northern Ireland the population continues to reject the culture of death - but the local government has been suspended for over 2 years. This has left the province in a vacuum which is being exploited in a move by the great majority of British MP’s in Westminster. This move has been made in cooperation of Sinn Fein, a self identified Irish republican party, who have collaborated with British MP’s to attempt to impose liberalised abortion and a “same sex marriage” regime on Northern Ireland. Such a blatant betrayal of Irish people by Irish republicans is unprecedented in Irish history. If the Northern Ireland government is not restored by 21st October, this imposition will become law. Kathy has a full report and takes a particular look at the spiritual side of this latest and most deadly attack on the unborn in Ireland. Guests include pro-life commentator Belfast priest Fr. Patrick McCafferty, Bernadette Smyth of Precious Life, Obstetrician Gynaecologist Dr. Trevor Hayes and Bishop John Keenan. Two Irish singer songwriters also share their songs on the subject, Paul Kyle and Joyce Higgins.
