World-respected news outlet Al Jazeera has done a piece on Irish abortion laws, comparing us to Afghanistan and Iran. I have never been so profoundly embarrassed to be Irish.
Money woes limit Irish abortion options - Europe - Al Jazeera English
You really need to look at the video in the article for the full report. I post this as a separate thread purely to give us some worldwide perspective.Many countries are condemned in the West for organised religion and its effect on peoples lives. Societies throw their arms up in horror if countries like Iran or Afghanistan deny women basic rights. They tend, however, not to mention Ireland.
In Ireland, a woman cannot have an abortion if she has been raped. She cannot have an abortion if the man who made her pregnant is beating her. She cannot have an abortion if the baby will die outside her body.
