Pro-lifers are applauding the courage of a Catholic priest who slammed the door in the face of a pro-abortion political party by banning the party’s deputy first minister from speaking in his church hall.

Father Eugene O’Neill, parish priest of St. Patrick’s Church in Coalisland, County Tyrone, canceled a booking of the left-wing Irish political party Sinn Féin on church property after being alerted by pro-lifers.
