In an interview with Crux, Maria McFadden Maffucci, president of the Human Life Review/ Foundation, described the polling numbers as “shattering.”
“Having witnessed the mighty efforts of the Save the 8th campaign in Ireland, I had real hope,” she said.
“Rather than the touted step forward, it is a step back in time,” Maffucci said. “We know what devastation legalized abortion has wrought in the U.S. – millions of unborn children dead, millions of mothers, father and siblings wounded, and an increase in the societal ills it was supposed to ameliorate, such as child abuse, broken families, and poverty.”
“Ireland could have led the world by learning from history, instead of being doomed to repeat it,” she said.
