    TBH vasectomies can save a lot of tax payers money, so in many cases they're an investment.

    Bizarre that a MoH who's just gone to bat for the abortion industry and who has gushed at the prospect of paying for abortions, lots of abortions, and free travel to the UK until it's legal here, etc., would baulk at funding vasectomies that would reduce the number of abortions required.

    It's as if he didn't really want to solve the problem of unwanted pregnancies , just wanted to be part of the abortion zeitgeist.

    ...but the state seems far happier to pay for the inevitable abortion...far better to pay good money to solve a problem than avoiding the problem in the first place, eh?

    My guess is that they don't save any taxpayers' money whatsoever. Those people that would get a vasectomy are the ones that are less likely to be sponging of other people to start with.

    Put it this way, how many knackers get a vasectomy each year do you suppose?

    There is no doubt that it is state funded.
    I had to pay for mine, maybe if I had a medical card I could have got it free.

    Bizarre of course that 8 years into a largely "austerity" driven agenda for a FG government that they haven't capped CA at 2 kids for any kids born after a 9 month notice period.

    Surely many posters on here want white Irish to have as many kids as possible? Or did I misunderstand that message.

    No. You totally misrepresent what was posted, apparently because you see everything through a racial lens.

    Making you a racist.
