Irish Pro-Abortion Rally: Playing the Numbers Game


The Irish Times assessed that those who turned up to march for a 'pro-choice' Ireland were not a hill of beans. The pro-abortion lobby screamed injustice. A blogger has done the maths by the old-fashioned method of counting. It turns out the Irish Times were right and the headcount is around 850 campaigners. That's 850. Not 3,500 as some would like the people of Ireland and beyond to think. Thank God for bloggers and people who can count.

It makes you wonder what the size of the rallies for 'choice' were back in the 60s and 70s when the BBC was beaming the footage into the homes of the unsuspecting...

Nothing to the "errors"in several orders of magnitude then uk , in the socalled "studies "of The number of backstreet abortions and rapes
There have been a number of good scholarly hatchet jobs on these figures, most now around internet somewhere, and they still trot out faked figures in every country they're trying to make murder legal.
They lie
They've been lying for half a century worldwide
they've been shown to lie
And they don't care
because there's enough politicos and media people who Want to believe it.

The joke in the U.S. is that if you want to make 300,000+ people disappear in broad daylight, just put pro-life signs and march them down the main street in Washington, D.C. The MSM cannot see them.
Dr. Bernard Nathanson who was at the forefront of the fight to legalize abortion, after his conversion admitted that they had lied about the number of maternal deaths from so-called back-alley abortions, making up a large number out of whole cloth. They were never questioned on this bogus number.
Love your blog, Bones; keep up the good and Godly work.

The prolife protests and rallies in Ireland over the past ten years have been generally ignored by the secular and very biased Media in Ireland. Even though there have actually been thousands at the Annual All Ireland Rally for Life each year. There is almost no objective public interest journalism in Ireland for decades. Print and broadcast Media provide propaganda for left-wing, atheistic ideologies and politics.
