Final week, we noticed how vicious the abortion debate in Eire has develop into when a pro-life TD (member of the Irish Parliament, or Dáil), was personally attacked and accused of getting “a visceral hatred of girls” for attempting to amend the intense abortion invoice being rushed by by the Authorities.
Not content material with labelling pro-life TDs as “malicious and vindictive” for in search of an modification on gathering knowledge on abortions on the identical scale because the UK does, pro-abortion politicians have additionally made feedback denying the ache of girls struggling after an abortion.
Abortion remorse “is nothing”.
In a video that has now gone viral, an Irish girl who had an abortion 13 years in the past expressed her anger and disgust at remarks made by Lisa Chambers TD.
Ms Chambers mentioned “abortion remorse is a makey-uppy factor, and it doesn’t exist,” in response to an modification put ahead by pro-life TDs Carol Nolan and Peadar Tóibín on entry to ultrasound scans. When Mr Tóibín countered that he included the entry to ultrasounds “as a result of abortion remorse is a big challenge,” pro-abortion TD Kate O’Connell chimed in, saying “No, it isn’t. It’s nothing.”
