Youth Defence is an anti-choice group of Catholics who organise to campaign against women’s rights in Ireland, and who have been implicated in many campaigns of harassment and intimidation since 1992.
The U.C.C. branch also personally physically threatened me in 1997 when I wrote an aggressively pro-choice article for the university newspaper. I escaped with the help of a much stronger friend.
Joseph Scheidler is a former Catholic monk who was the architect of the modern pro-life movement. The FACE Act was passed directly as a result of his attempts to physically attack women’s health clinics in America.
It comes as no surprise whatsoever that Youth Defence has links to other extreme Catholic organisations.
Time to fuck over some Nazis. Time to repeal the 8th.
