European Court Rules on Ireland Abortion Law

Pro-lifers scored another huge victory recently, as the European Court of Human Rights has ruled on a key abortion case, saying that abortion is NOT a human right for women. The Irish law bans most abortions with exceptions only for the life of the mother. Women who traveled to England for abortions claim they were denied their rights because the Irish pro-life law requires them to travel out of the country for abortions.

This ruling affects not only the abortion law in Ireland but also could have an affect on the rest of Europe, as other European countries are under the same Court's jurisdiction. Sure, and wouldn't St. Patrick be pleased with that!
