Leaving aside the whole incident in Galway that has brought abortion back into the centre of political life with a bang - the Ryan group also has presented their report to the Minister in regard to legislating or not for abortion on the basis of Supreme court judgements........
What will Kenny do? - he is a vocal anti-abortionist - but he is also Taoiseach and has a duty to uphold the constitution.
What will he do if the report comes back recommending legislation on the basis of the X case and other judgements?
A) do nothing for as long as possible- very likely
b) commission another report - 100% if he can get away with it and push the can down the road as long as possible
Will Labour stand for this? - is this the non-economic issue that always seems to break coalition governments
This is getting silly now - and tragic - there will be more cases coming along
If Kenny and some of his party have such a problem with abortion in all cases - well then they should call a referendum that rules out abortion period - in all cases - and no get outs -and put it to the people
then if the people reject this - then they should legistate for the current situation or stand aside and let somebody else who takes their duties seriously on with the job.
this consistent flunking away from the issue is just running out of road now
