Ireland’s Eighth Amendment was repealed in a landslide vote, 66 to 34, and the country now will allow abortion. Prior to the vote, thousands of women each year traveled outside of Ireland to obtain abortions. Many traveled internationally to return home to cast their ballots.

Groups dedicated to life are saddened and mourning after Ireland voted Saturday to repeal its Eight Amendment banning abortion.

“Ireland will now join that sad community of nations who throw away irreplaceable human beings through abortion on demand,” Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins said in a Saturday press release. “I personally know the pain of abortion and how something sold to you as a simple solution actually becomes a life-long regret,” SFLA International Programs Director Ally Bowlin added, lamenting Ireland’s vote.

“We are deeply saddened to learn that many Irish people voted against love and life by repealing the 8th amendment,” March For Life president Jeanne Mancini told The Daily Caller News Foundation Saturday. “We grieve for the great loss this beautiful country will endure and we pray that they find a way to reverse this unfortunate decision,” she continued.

The Irish electorate voted 66.4 percent to 33.6 percent to repeal the Eight Amendment Saturday. The vote comes after swaths of Irish, many of whom had traveled across international waters to return home in order to cast their ballots, headed to the booths Friday to affirm or reject their commitment to protecting life. Voting booths in the majority Catholic country opened at 7 a.m. Friday and closed at 10 p.m. Officials began counting votes at 9 a.m. Saturday.
