No campaign attacks Lisbon for NOT legalising abortion.

Posted by Jason O on Sep 14, 2009 in Irish Politics, Lisbon Treaty |

Is there anything they won't say?

Is there anything they won't say?

A group called  “Women Say No to Lisbon – Again” has attacked the Charter of Fundamental Rights attached to the Lisbon treaty for ignoring “women’s human rights in several areas, including the right to childcare, reproductive and sexual rights…”

Reproductive and sexual rights? What does that mean? The freedom to choose abortion? So now the No campaign are attacking the EU for not legalising abortion as well?

I’ll have a bag of dry roasted, please.

Wonder is it a front for the yes camp designed to reassure pro-life voters that Lisbon won’t bring in abortion….

Well, it was headed by Patricia McKenna and Bairbre de Brun, so if it is a Yes front, it’s a f**king good one!
