    Who cares? Done deal.

    The issue is now the legislation that’ll come after it.

    When will “Turn It Up to 12” appear?

    1. phil

      You know , I think you are right, just look at the comments from Dail so far, Its going to be a hell of a year after the referendum , and will never end ….

  2. Daisy Chainsaw

    There you go… all you handwringing fretters who are worried that the lack of billboards will lose the Yes vote, there’s tomorrow’s front pages for you.

    1. Spud

      Front pages?
      I doubt it.
      Besides, it needs a tagline or an image.
      Repeal? Why?
      At least three prolifers get their message across, no matter how gory they do it!

  3. Nilbert

    “So this happened today” … why do people always have to add this phrase in? It’s everywhere.

    Wait, what?!
    … I literally can’t even….

    Article 40.3.3º

    The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.

          Very Irish. Export the problem and pretend it doesn’t exist rather than confront the situation like adults.

          Oh and using words like ‘industry’ and ‘on demand’ just makes you sound mental. No right thinking person believes for one second that it would be anything other than a medical option. It’ll affect Ireland’s moral landscape as much as the legalisation of gay marriage did. i.e. not a jot.

          1. Sentient Won

            If we are to “confront the situation like adults” surely that means accepting responsibility for our actions.

            You are free to make your own choices in life but you are not free from the consequences of those choices.

          2. ReproBertie (SCU)

            What if, instead of abortion, we force the women to have babies and then give them up to adoption by gay couples? After all, we were promised baby factories if we voted for marriage equality.

          3. Nigel

            Ah, old school ‘women must be punished for having sex by forcing them to have babies’ misogyny.

          4. Sentient Won

            You’re especially demented today Nigel if you think having a baby is some kind of punishment.

            I think the real misogyny here is yours as you’re claiming that women can’t be responsible for their own actions, that they are so infantile we must protect them from the potential normal, natural outcome of a normal, natural activity.

          5. Nigel

            If you don’t subscribe to the view that women should be punished for having sex, because that all this ‘consequences of their actions’ talk really is, then allow them the freedom to terminate unwanted pregnancies.

          6. ReproBertie (SCU)

            You women really need to start taking responsibility for getting yourselves raped.

          7. Sentient Won


            ” terminate unwanted pregnancies ”

            Newspeak for Killing Babies.

            I don’t subscribe to that brutal ideology.

            ReproBertie (SCU)

            I’m sure you’re aware that rape is given as the reason for an abortion in less than 1% of cases worldwide.

            Hard cases make bad law. And your misogynistic sarcasm is still misogynistic.

          8. ReproBertie (SCU)

            And I’m sure you’re aware that I don’t really care what percentage of abortions are down to rape because I’m supporting Repeal anyway as it’s a wonderful opportunity to remove some bad law from our constitution.

          9. Sentient Won

            So if it’s not about rape then why mention it?

            Protecting the right to life of the unborn and the equal right to life of the mother is bad law?

            Geezz. Somebody did a number on you for you to be so damaged, misogynistic and hateful.

            Either that or you’re shilling for the global Abortion Industry: estimated 56 million induced abortions every year, worth €Billions.

          10. Sentient Won

            Daisy Chainsaw:

            Thankfully I am unaware of anybody systematically killing babies due to the protection offered to the unborn and their mothers by Article 40.3.3º of the Irish constitution.

            Long may it remain.

          11. Nigel

            No you subscribe to a brutal misogynistic ideology that denies women access to health care.

          12. ReproBertie (SCU)

            I mentioned rape to point out the stupidity of your responsibility statement obviously.

          13. Sentient Won


            Abortion isn’t healthcare. It destroys human life.

            ReproBertie (SCU):

            Sliders gonna slide. You mentioned rape for shock value even though you know it’s not the reason for 99% of Abortions.

          14. Nigel

            Cancer treatment is health care and thanks to the 8th there are certain treatments that have to be delayed or precluded if a woman is pregnant. Also, abortions are health care for women.

          15. Sentient Won


            “As experienced practitioners and researchers in obstetrics and gynaecology, we affirm that direct abortion – the purposeful destruction of the unborn child – is not medically necessary to save the life of a woman.

            We uphold that there is a fundamental difference between abortion, and necessary medical treatments that are carried out to save the life of the mother, even if such treatment results in the loss of life of her unborn child.

            We confirm that the prohibition of abortion does not affect, in any way, the availability of optimal care to pregnant women.”

          16. mildred st. meadowlark

            Again, who are these practitioners and researchers? You didn’t answer me before.

            And as I mentioned before, the 8th amendment is responsible for this case.

            This should never have been allowed to happen, and it is because of the 8th amendment that it did. It directly affects the quality of healthcare that doctors can offer to women in this country.

            Those are nice words, you’ve quoted there. But empty rhetoric at the end of the day. Stories like the one I posted are the reality of the 8th amendment.

          17. Sentient Won

            Are you unable to navigate a website Mildred?


            Hard cases make bad law. You know full well that the “Health Care” issue is a Trojan horse towards a full abortion on demand service.

            Abortion is not health care. It destroys a human life.

            Nigel accuses me of everything he himself is guilty of. It’s a typical SJW/Lefty/Liberal tactic and I reject his accusation completely.

            Point out any lie I’ve posted today in this thread.

          18. Nigel

            I was referring to the campaign itself Sentient not you but you lie when you say the 8th is not an impediment to women receiving health care.

    Painting on walls is the Repeal campaign’s version of “is there anything to be said for another Mass?”

  6. Tom

    They don’t realise that they are losing the war badly. Their oh so superior attitude is going down very badly with swing voters.

  7. painkiller

    the design brings HB products to mind….you thought the Iceberger was consistently good, wait until you try a Repeal thesth!

    1. mildred st. meadowlark

      It’s kinda not.

      Not at 12 weeks or earlier. The organs required for life are only beginning to form and a very, very long way from functionality.

      1. newsjustin

        Yet the heart is beating at 6 weeks and petey is correct.

        Or, to put it another way, you are wrong mildred.

  8. Matt Lucozade: The Only Reader of the Village

    Is this logo copyrighted or trademarked, etc? Or can it be used by anyone, anywhere?

      1. Matt Lucozade: The Only Reader of the Village

        The artwork is copyrighted to Maser, yes? So, if someone is producing say t-shirts for a profit, using the logo, that’s a non-commercial use, yeah?

  9. Cloud

    The signatories on that “Dublin Declaration” website.

    I went down the list googling names as I went. After about the first 30, they are mostly in USA and Canada.

    Worth pointing out.

      1. ReproBertie (SCU)

        Might be worth mentioning that to Together For Yes who are currently fundraising the €50K they need for posters.

        1. Sentient Won

          So what you’re saying is: apart from Repeal Jumpers as a fashion item and some fake news media the Yes campaign does not have automatic or widespread public and/or community support.
