Roger Buck: Episode 15 - Abortion and the Tragedy of Ireland

When the Irish Constitution was adopted in 1937, abortion was so unthinkable that it wasn't even addressed. In 1983, the Irish voted 67%-33% to include the protection of the life of the unborn in the 8th Amendment to the Constitution. In 2018, the 8th Amendment was repealed by the 36th Amendment by almost exactly the same vote.

A tragedy of unthinkable proportions befell the Irish Republic on May 25th 2018: Her people voted in a referendum to repeal the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution, paving the way for abortion on demand. In this video, Roger Buck, an American Catholic author, living in Ireland confronts what this means for the unborn child as Ireland no doubt starts heading down the same slippery slope that has led to the holocaust of abortion elsewhere. He also laments the final disintegration of Irish Catholic culture which had so long defended the Right to Life, but which has now thrown it away for the Culture of Death. Herein he considers the Easter Rising of 1916, which led to Irish independence from Britain, suggesting the men and women of 1916 would be horrified by what has happened to modern Ireland.

Here is the precise antithesis of Irish nationalism and everything Pearse and de Valera believed in ... 1,600 years of Irish Christianity has been rejected and the result is a defeat not only for once-Christian Ireland, but the pro-life cause everywhere. Countless Irish babies will now be slaughtered wholesale …

Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
