Ireland is the only country in Europe where abortions are illegal--the only exception is when the pregnancy poses a risk to the mother's life

Never give up the fight for a woman's right to choose.

Methinks, this problem (together with many other problems) could and ought to be eradicated for good by eradicating it's/their roots. And the root cause is INDOCTRINATION/brain-washing/mind-raping children with centuries-to-millennia-outdated ( irrational, sick, m...) IDEOLOGIES, like bible-fetishism & comparable idiotisms.

So i would call for an immediate and STRICT implementation of
UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
Article 24
3. States Parties shall take all effective and appropriate measures with a view to abolishing traditional practices prejudicial to the health of children.

A woman should have the right to choose, being guided only be her own conscience, and not subject to a bunch of males in a church. A fetus is not a person.

Noted. Glad to see the protest. Hope they are successful. Ditto what Lynn said above "a fetus is not a person."

Good Evening and thank you for the article =which I read and noted - and the video - which I watched - The solution must be found world wide - it must start with proper education and the electing of good honest people to represent us in government - schools and churches --All woman should have the right to decide with their husband and doctor - if and when they need to use birth control and how large they want their family to be...PERIOD Sincerely Kay M.

More troubles in Ireland, but I just had to laugh. "We're cleaning the filthy stains." "Have you no shame! No shame!" They may be feeling the weight of oppression, but they're not bowing down.

You go, ladies! Make that stain disappear!

A sure thing is that there is going to be a contest between the anti-abortion and pro-choice crowds.
Maybe the anti-abortion crowd will lose all the time because archaeologist have discovered that even cave-dwellers used certain herbs to get rid of pregnancies and women who want an abortion will always find some means to do so. Many will die. The anti-abortion crowd Is not concerned about the safety or life of a woman when one of six in the USA die in childbirth .....she is not supposed to be in control.....the anti-abortion crowd intends to be .

From a Jewish law/halachah perspective, it is clear that a fetus is not a human being. Therefore abortion is perfectly o.k., it should be a woman's choice. It's hard enough to decide to abort a pregnancy for all sorts of reasons; the State and the Church should not make it more difficult for women by restricting access by declaring the procedure illegal or immoral.

A sign carried by a woman in the video: "I can't believe I'm still dealing with this Sh_t"!

Ireland used to be the MOST CATHOLIC country on Earth - people have left, and are still leaving, the Holy Roman Catholic Church in DROVES, and churches stand EMPTY all over Ireland..... YAY!!!!!!
The Women of Ireland are VERY, VERY ANGRY at the Church, as one can see reading the Irish Press -
the Most Holy Roman Catholic Church having FORCED unwed Women to have babies, then TAKEN THEIR BABIES FORCIBLY AWAY FROM THEM AND SELLING THE BABIES, for MONEY TO ENRICH THE CHURCH - while then FORCING the Unwed Mothers to work as SLAVES in the Magdalen Laundries, among other things....
and, of course, SUCH ATROCITIES TOOK PLACE NOT ONLY IN IRELAND - but EVERYwhere the Most Holy Roman Catholic Church had Institutional Power.
Australia, Canada.... in Montreal, for example, kids in Catholic Orphanages were HANDED OVER TO DRUG COMPANIES TO DO EXPERIMENTS ON..... by the Nuns supposed to be taking care of them. There was a CONSTANT SUPPLY of "surplus" children, AND THEY WEREN'T ALL "ORPHANS", either!!!!!
The DEPTHS OF TOTAL EVIL of the Most "Holy" Roman Catholic Church is only BEGINNING to truly come to light of day.... and it is VERIFIABLY TRUE, insane as it seems to be!

Anyway, I had an Abortion thank goodness, my Daughter had an Abortion, and my GRANDMOTHER had an Abortion in Germany. Both my and my Grandmothers' Abortions were illegal at the time, and potentially DANGEROUS and life-threatening.... my Daughter's was the FIRST SAFE AND LEGAL ABORTION in our Family! Thank goodness!
ALL THREE ABORTIONS benefitted not only the recipients personally, but they IMMENSELY BENEFITTED THE FAMILY AS A WHOLE.

Abortion is a GOOD, and a NECESSARY thing.
It is as old as Human Intelligence.
and they should all be FREE, as they are in France!
Abortion and Birth Control are DESPERATELY NEEDED TO CONTROL OVER-POPULATION on this Planet.

AniMae: Don't "feel sorry for those girls" - THEY ARE GOING TO WIN!!!
It is only a matter of TIME.....

After all, just last year, MALTA, due to the Holy Roman Catholic Church, was THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT DID NOT ALLOW -- DIVORCE!
But, NOW they do allow Divorce - it was INEVITABLE!
The Most Holy Roman Catholic Church is EVERYWHERE LOSING POLITICAL CONTROL - as it is, thank goodness!, LOSING ITS CONTROL OVER THE MINDS OF PEOPLE, especially of the Young.
So, just as Divorce is now a LEGAL, Secular and not a religious issue, so it will be in formerly-Catholic countries with ABORTION AND BIRTH CONTROL.
[These countries don't have our American Evangelical Religious Right to deal with, just the pathetic remnants of traditional Catholic State Power!]

The Most Holy Roman Catholic Church, is, somehow!, unable to SCARE PEOPLE WITH THE RIDICULOUS CONCEPT OF "SIN", any more.... that Adam & Eve & the Apple & the Talking Snake bilge.........
