      Only extremists don’t to be fair.

      But their plans for afterwards are basically prove you were raped if you want an abortion. They’re so incompetent they’ve let Fine Fail out progressive them. Mary Lou needs to cut back on graveside chats and do some politics.

        You’ll have to get used hearing her more often when she’s a government minister in the next election.

    “Pro-Life activists urging the Health Minister “to protect women from the abortion industry while, above,”

    These people are the same the world over.

    Why not a bit of FGM while you’re at it to protect our precious barely sentient women from the dangers of STI’s too, eh?

      The easiest way to protect women from the “abortion industry” is to ensure there isn’t one and have abortions free through the HSE. The stats show that the majority of abortions are to women in their mid 20s to mid 30s and most of them are already mothers who’ve been paying tax PRSI, USC, VAT etc and their contributions over the years should easily cover the costs of a prescription for pills and a follow up examination.

    Maybe I’m over thinking this but it really bothers me to see children at these rallys/protests/demonstrations. I was recently told I could bring my kids to a repeal coffee morning. For a start you just never know when the anti folks will show up with disturbing imagery. With regard to the invitation to the coffee morning, it was well intentioned but isn’t abortion an entirely adult topic? I really don’t think there’s any reason to explain what abortion is to an 8 year old.

      Honestly I think it’s to dispell the myth of kid-hating abortion supporters. Which is bullpoo in any case. If someone thinks you can’t be a parent and pro-choice that’s their issue. I don’t think these are events for kids either.

        Nobody tells me what to do. Except my Mum, my boss and my 2-year-old.

      Think it is called International Men’s day, use Google (search engine you used to get here) or ask Richard Herring on twitter. International mans day- that sounds like something to do with spies.
