Mayo Life Network have announced the holding of a Rally for Life in Castlebar Co Mayo to be held on Saturday November 3rd.

Castlebar was chosen as the venue for the rally because it is in the constituency of Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Enda Kenny, to remind him and the Fine Gael party, of the promises made prior to the last election that they would not allow abortion to be legalised in Ireland.
It has also been arranged to express grave concern at the pronouncements of Health Minister James Reilly who falsely claimed that the European Court ruling in the A, B and C case called for abortion legislation and it needed to be implemented as expeditiously as possible.

Despite the fact that many Fine Gael TD's have spoken out against abortion others in their party together with the majority of Labour party  deputies are determined to use the report of the Government's expert group to introduce abortion in ireland

The venue will be the Mall in Castlebar and the rally will commence at 1pm
