You can have no abortion, or seriously no abortion.

Posted by Jason O on Dec 16, 2010 in Irish Politics |

In light of the recent ECHR ruling, the Pro-Life Campaign has called here for Ireland’s SIXTH referendum on abortion, something which is becoming, to be honest, a bit of a national fetish.

Well, fair enough, let’s be clear about this: Let’s have a clear choice between having abortion available, and not having it. No more pandering to the Pro Life Campaign who basically want to constantly add yet more plating to a situation where you CAN’T actually get an abortion here, and so you end up having a ballot paper choice between no abortion and no abortion.

Let the Irish people vote on the actual issue of  abortion availability, in circumstances outlined in a bill to pass if they ratify it.  The PLC don’t own this issue, you know.

It’s a pity that in Ireland to be of the safe, legal and rare viewpoint is deemed as some sort of fence sitting cop out.
