Frustrating the will of the referendum… December 6, 2018

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

So far that hasn’t happened and the Bill passed yesterday night just around 12…

The Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy Bill, which will allow for the introduction of abortion services, will proceed to the Seanad after passing all stages in the Dáil last night.

TDs voted in favour of the abortion legislation by 90 votes to 15, with 12 abstentions.

Some of the proposed amendments though – thankfully not adopted… and difficult not to agree with Miriam Lord’s assessment that it was as if the referendum had never happened. And now on to the Seanad.

Well they don’t give up and neither should we.

If there are so may potential human rights abuses in the semi-enactment of the referendum decision then take the government to the ECHR.

Yep, by all means, lash it back to those who don’t give up. Resorting to the ECHR is a challenge to the system. Who would not want to respect that? Yet, legal challeges can progress piteously slow. Direct action is necessary to challenge the 3 day pause and criminalisation too.
