The Life Institute has produced a list of candidates [after consulting only Direct Democracy, Fianna Fáil,
the Green Party and Independents] for the local elections who they claim support the following statement:
Do you support the repeal of the legislation which permits abortion on suicide grounds, and support making Ireland a place where unborn children are legally protected and mothers get all necessary life-saving treatment in pregnancy?
Of the 157 (now 163) candidates listed, 144 (now 148) are male and 13 (now 15) female.
This means approximately 92% (now 91%) are men.
Make of that what you will.
