NI Voiceless Event at 7pm on 06/09/19

The following information is quoted from the NI Voiceless Website found here:

Why?

On 10 July 2019, the Westminster parliament voted in favour of an amendment to the Northern Ireland Executive Formation Bill that would liberalise abortion legislation in Northern Ireland. The bill, including this amendment, will take effect after 21 October if the Stormont executive is not reinstated by then.

This silent protest at the vote and its repercussions says:

a) We were not asked. Westminster has legislated for us without hearing us. Every sitting Northern Ireland MP voted against these changes, the people of Northern Ireland were not consulted, and there is no public support in Northern Ireland for the kind of wholesale legalisation of abortion that has been planned.

b) They cannot speak. Westminster has ignored the unborn child. The human individuals whose lives will be ended if abortion is legalised have no voice in the debate and many speeches in parliament concerning this amendment dehumanised the unborn child and disregarded its value and right to life.

Who?

People of all ages and all religions and political persuasions are welcome – anyone who objects to this planned change to the law. We need as many people as possible to express their concerns in silent dignity.

This protest is not affiliated with any religious or political organisation and is not coordinated by any organisation or campaign group. It has been planned by concerned citizens of Northern  Ireland who wish to express our deep dissatisfaction with this intended change in a law we consider to be good.

How?

Gather at the lower gates of Stormont Estate for 7pm. At the blow of a whistle we will walk silently and slowly to the foot of the steps to Parliament Buildings where we will stand in silence, heads bowed and lights held high, for six minutes (one for each county) until another whistle is blown.’

  2. Dylan says:

    everyone deserves to have a life even those who are unborn

  3. Myles says:

    Misogynist bigots.
    If you are pregnant, then your opinion on abortion becomes important, to you. Until then, mind your own business. Paisley may be long gone but his interfering busybodies are still hanging around.
    Attempting to control or interfere with the healthcare of anybody else is not only stupid, it is sick and immoral. Still, it is probably the christian thing to do, even if your god showed priests which herbs to use to induce abortions. (Deu. 23:1&2;Lev. 21:17-20,23;and Hosea 2:4&6) for starters.

  4. John McFarlane says:

    Every foetus is a God given gift and becomes a fully functioning child Abortion is murder! Is this what our politicians in Westminster really want to foist on Northern Ireland without us even having a say? What has happened to democracy? Please God turn this decision around !

    Hi, I hope to go on Friday to the Stormont event, I am a blue disabled badge holder. Is there any way I can be assured of a parking space near the silent protest

  6. Alan Houston says:

    Excellent initiative. Best wishes for a good turnout. But please clarify location of meeting point; is it gates on Newtownards Rd? How far is walk? Can less able walkers join from Massey Ave gates? Can participants park in Stormont grounds? Also give advice on bus and Glider routes. Can I arrive by bicycle?

  7. Yes it is disturbing there,s no regard for life in the womb The youngest lives who aint had a chance Their life taken from them The wrong sort get in If there were better peaple in charge who know a bub is a human being from conception and how evil abortion is It should be acknowledged

  8. Anne Harpur says:

    This is a brilliant idea, trusting it will let our politicians see that there are those who
    Have been very upset by the unwanted & unfair way the Government in UK has ignored
    & not allowed us our right to vote on this very serious & important subject.
    Thank you!

  9. Undemocratic to say the least! Man has no right to kill the life of a child in the womb.
