Irish pro-lifers are engaged in a David and Goliath struggle to protect the unborn.

As Ireland prepares for the May 25 national abortion referendum, polls show the gap is narrowing between abortion supporters and defenders of children in the womb.

The pro-abortion camp has been boosted by Ireland's establishment media.  

Irish author and columnist John Waters comments on the media bias: "Virtually to a man and to a woman, journalists are on one side of these arguments."

But faithful Catholics are striking back with the spiritual weapon of the Rosary. 

In November 2017, 30,000 rallied along Ireland’s coasts in defense of life.

Since then, the faithful have held multiple Rosary campaigns, including one earlier this month that saw Catholics gather at 85 sites across the country to pray for the defeat of abortion.

Irish faithful are asking Catholics around the world to join them in praying and fasting to keep the abortion regime from being ushered in to the Emerald Isle.
