Brave Donegalman, Tim Jackson, is currently carrying out a “hungerstrike” outside of Dáil Éireann. His aim is to pressure the Taoiseach and the Dáil Committee responsable for looking into the 8th Ammendment to look at a video animation of an abortion (made by former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino) before they make any decision on changing the legal status quo.
Since Jackson has stated that he does not intend to go to death on his “hungerstrike” (he will fast on water alone “as long as necessary”), Catholics can support his action without scruple.
Here is a link to a petition which calls on Leo Varadkar and the Dáil Committee to heed Jackson’s very reasonable request: http://www.citizengo.org/en-gb/lf/93474-hungerstrike-8th-amendment
Naomh Pádraig, guigh air!
