All eyes are on Ireland this week ... as the Irish have an opportunity that Americans were denied ? an opportunity to vote on abortion in their country.

Watch this short video breaking down this historic moment.

Pray for Ireland this week as they vote on an abortion referendum on May 25. The pressure on Ireland has been growing from the global abortion industry, the media, and some of their own politicians to be the last country in the West to fall to abortion.

We in America know all too well the devastating impact that legalized abortion has had ? and no one saw it coming on January 22, 1973 when the men on the Supreme Court forced it upon our great nation.

After 45 years of legalized abortion ? and more than 60 million abortions ? we look at our friends in Ireland and encourage them to vote NO on May 25.

Please watch and share this video with everyone you know as we encourage Ireland to stand strong, continue to embrace life, and speak for their country and not give in to the onslaught of outside pressure from the abortion industry.

Pray for Ireland to remain a country that loves, embraces, and celebrates life.
