DUBLIN, Aug 16 ( – An Irish abortion referral service known as the Irish Family Planning Association has applied to the high court to have pro-life picketers jailed. In a move all too familiar on the North American abortion scene, the pro-aborts are enraged that their lucrative business is being hampered and have sought a court order to prevent picketing.  Youth Defense, a pro-life activist group, has picketed one of the Association’s clinics and handed out materials revealing that it “exports Irish babies for slaughter”. The court is expected to decide on the issue next week.
