We need to pray that Ireland will continue to ban abortion.

 

It is a predominantly Catholic country however, so I doubt you will find abortion on demand being approved whatever the result. The demand for a referendum has been provoked by a case where a woman died of sepsis over several days because a hospital would not remove the dying and infected child she was already miscarrying in case it was deemed they had performed an illegal abortion. Her husband sued for negligence and breach of her right to life, and won. Legal clarification of what "danger to life" means might be a very good idea as the current "Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act 2013" rushed out after these events appears to satisfy neither pro-life or pro-choice.
