In late spring the country will hold a referendum on the issue of legalized abortion.
Protesters demonstrating in favour of the preservation of the eighth amendment of the Constitution, which forbids abortion.
In the capital of Ireland, Dublin tens of thousands of people on March 10, participated in the March of life, protesting against abortion.
It is noted that at the end of may in the country should be a referendum on the question of the legalization of abortion. Citizens will be asked whether they want to retain the eighth amendment of the Irish Constitution banning abortion, or to abolish it, giving Parliament the authority to develop legislation in the area of abortion.
Demonstrators went on the March, in favour of maintaining the eighth amendment in force.
A spokeswoman for the campaign Save the Eighth (eighth Save), speaking to the protesters, said that supporters of the movement remained ten weeks to convince the Irish to vote against the repeal.
The eighth amendment was adopted in a referendum in 1983. She says about the equivalence of the lives of the mother and fetus, and prohibits abortion in almost all circumstances.
