I think it should be remembered that when the votes are cast and the controversy dies down, there will be little if any change to the current state of affairs.
Women who want abortions can still travel openly to Britain or any other country where abortion is legal or else abortion pills may be ordered by post.
We will still have an Irish solution to an Irish problem as Charlie Haughey might put it.

This is not a solution, women taking dodgy pills without medical supervision, women getting procedures with no aftercare. Women not being in a position to travel and essentially being forced to continue with an unwanted pregnancy.

This is not an Irish solution to an Irish problem. That's a damaging phrase that suggests that the current status quo is any sort of 'solution'.

Mickey Harte seems to have more compassion for lads accused of sexual assault and murder than he does for vulnerable young women.

He's a dinosaur, needs to take his hard line catholic shite and get it away from anything related to the GAA.

I think you may have taken Lar up the wrong way.
I'm afraid he has. I guess SYF is too young to remember what Charlie said and the context in which he said it.
I was being sarcastic when I paraphrased him.
 
But at least he is back on speaking terms again so we must be grateful for small mercies.  :D :D

I think the Repeal campaign might be lulled into a false sense of security by the size of the victory in the Marriage Equality vote.  There seems to be assumption that those who voted for marriage equality will automatically vote to Repeal. Based on my Facebook feed nothing could be further from the truth

Well deserved.  Best player in the Premier League this season by a country mile.

Really pulled ahead of KDB in the last month or so. When is the voting for this?

I think there will be a big no vote from rural Ireland. It's just a hunch I have. The no campaign to me seem to be out of blocks fast and the FF and FG parties are afraid to look actively for a yes at local level. I also think both sides are descending into auld shite of shouting down the other instead of making their case. Harte I don't like his uber religious talk but he is an Irish citizen and entitled to an opinion  (he should have GAA out of it) yet today Twitter full of trendy lefties saying he's from north so should mind his business. The yes side need to get their act together quick as those no posters are very simple & effective and should not be under estimated.

I would describe them as partitionists not 'trendy lefties'

I think you may have taken Lar up the wrong way.

And I think you may have taken up the implications of what he said the wrong way to say that, Jinxy.

That is also a possibility.

Shambles that Kane didnt get young player.

They should lower the age for that. 21 at the start of the season

What age is Kane, 25. How can he been in the shout for young player of the year. Its some joke😂😂

I think he’s 24 and the rule is if you’re 23 at the start of the season.

A bit uneducated here on this matter. Will removing the 8th lead to abortion on demand or just in cases for the likes of rape, abnormalities etc.?

'Abortion on demand' is a very loaded No side term, so I'd be careful phrasing it as such if you don't want to give the wrong impression.

Repealing the 8th will mean a new law that allows abortions up to 12 weeks will be ratified by the Dail. This entirely to be the woman's choice, as it should be. Anything else would just lead to women and doctors fudging the law to use the loopholes to get an abortion so if we are going to repeal the 8th we have to install something that legislates for the actual reality and not some idealised version where situational limits on abortion actually work.
