      We’re voting to remove the 8th amendment from the constitution and to grant the Oireachtas the power to legislate for abortion.

        1. ReproBertie

          That’s part of the legislation the government hope to introduce if the referendum is passed.

          This has been covered in newspapers and on websites for weeks. For someone who won’t be deciding until you know what you’re voting on you don’t seem to have done much to educate yourself.

            woooooooooooo. Take a chill pill. I will make an informed decision once I read the exact wording of the referendum. Whats the point of listening to hard lined pro choice and anti abortionists shouting at each other until then. When I listen to hardliners I rebel. The comment you made above just turns me against that type of person.

          2. ReproBertie

            The wording of the referendum won’t carry any specifics on what will come in the legislation to follow and that’s the whole point. But you know that. You’ve already decided. You’re voting to deny women the basic right of bodily autonomy. You’re just attempting to muddy the waters with this wait and see áiféis.

          3. ReproBertie

            Sure Alan, sure. You’re just ignoring all the information available to passive aggressively post doubts about deciding without knowing what we’ll be asked.

            Frill I have absolutely no idea what you’re trying to say.

            Simply put, Alan here is not the first person to wander into Broadsheet and proudly announce that they won’t be deciding until X despite X being freely available. This is an important issue and it irritates me to see laziness and wilful ignorance posted as if ti was a virtue.

            give over you RepBerto
            you’re codding no one

            you have a set of message to imprint here and supervise
            on this threads its
            Parlay the Government side into a successful win
            and fair enough we’re in the same lane on this one

            but don’t think ye’re still going to be let off

          5. ReproBertie

            This is ridiculous. I don’t work for the government for “rhymes with muc” sake!

            BS has my IP address. You write columns for them so presumably you have email addresses. Ask them where I’m posting from.

            If that’s too much hassle, follow me back on Twitter and I’ll send you a copy of my work ID.

            This “Shill” BS because people disagree is pathetic.

          6. Frill the 8th

            ah would ya stop
            work ID my rhymes with dole
            shur I have other jobs too

            btw
            I couldn’t care less
            I lovit when ye all descend
            The More the Merrier

            I’ve no problem with ye
            you won’t find me use the word Troll or Shill as often as you
            or anyone else here
            or even anywhere near a 25:1 ratio

            I’ve never taken to ambushing commenteers on any Frill-bit
            and no -one nor one comment
            has ever been objected to, referred to BS or asked to be deleted or complained about behind the open board
            I don’t go to twitter and call Broadsheeters trolls dogs or cowards
            or put together herds around here to help me out
            and No one on that wall of contributors bottom right has taken the level of negative comments and hits I have
            Not even combined

            so RepBerto
            I’m the last person you should be trying to make out is empty shurt with nothing but ara yer just a shilly trilly blah di blah

          7. ReproBertie

            Don’t think I’ve ever called anyone a troll or a shill and I’ve certainly never abused you on any of your columns.

            Are you sure you’re not mistaking me for someone else?

      1. david

        Exactly the point granting the oireachtas the power to legislate exactly what?
        this is what disturbs me
        We do not know exactly what will replace it?

    2. david

      Exactly
      To remove something but we do not know what is replacing it
      Maybe its a fiscal space
      And meanwhile if you do not put on the green jersey you are vilified

      1. ReproBertie

        Another Retainer pretending to be undecided.

        If you’re happy to force 12 year olds to carry a baby to term vote No. If you think that shouldn’t happen vote Yes. It’s really that simple.

        1. david

          I do not like holding a baby up who actually is not old enough to even speak let alone vote to support unlimited abortion in a photo op
          And the other photo of someone dressed up like a blooms day character
          Is it Nora barnacle or actually a suffragette
          The overnight bags ?
          I cannot see the relevance is it to avoid paying for luggage for a cheap ryanair flight or a symbolic gesture of empowerment

        2. david

          Well I will vote no and others who will not be carried out on a wave of hysteria will also vote no as savita is hijacked by those who want abortion on demand to further their cause
          Such a shame because the savitas will just leap happening again and again thanks to this PC circus

          1. ReproBertie (SCU)

            A fella who thinks it’s fine to force 12 year olds to give birth trying to claim the high moral ground?

          2. david

            No Nigel weak minded is being a sheep
            Strong minded is to stand up for your beliefs as others ridicule you

    Just out of shot is the Tanaiste bobbing up and down in the surf with a Finding Dory inflatable ring and toy mask and snorkel combo.

    The referendum question hasn’t been formulated yet has it?

    So they’re saying yes to “Repeal the 8th” or “Leave the 8th as it stands”

    Confusing.

    1. ReproBertie

      Be sensible. No referendum will ask people to vote Yes to keep the status quo. It will always be Yes to change, No to stay as we are.

    What are the small suitcases for? to carry on board to fly to Britain if the No side win it?
