In 1997, Dana entered politics with a nomination to run in the Irish presidential election. Not forgetting the faces of the women [who had suffered the pain of an abortion], she ran her campaign on defending life from conception and protecting Christian family values, both enshrined in the Irish Constitution and both being undermined by a heavy-handed European Union. Dana managed to beat out one of Ireland’s major political parties — earning 14 percent of the vote — but did not win the election.
In 1999, Dana became elected as a Member of the European Parliament, a position she held until 2004. During this time, in spite of intense opposition, she courageously defended her country’s constitutional protection of the unborn and constitutionally-backed marriage law that defined marriage as between a man and woman.
Dana continues through her music and speaking engagements to work for peace, Christian family values, and respect for life. “I love to sing, but I love people,” she said.Comments on this blog? Email them to email@example.com
