A protestor at the Our Bodies; Our Right Rally to Repeal the 8th in Dublin last Saturday
“Because they are in direct touch with the electorate Irish politicians know this and that is why they repeatedly say there is no appetite for another referendum. Politicians are understandably reluctant to spend even more time and energy on constitutional proposals that have no real prospect of being passed or lawmaking that would do little to alter the plight of those in crisis pregnancies in the absence of constitutional change. Many might wish it otherwise but that is the political reality.”
Noel Whelan in today’s Irish Times.
