    Default X Case Demonstration At Dáil 6 pm 28th November

    Protest for X Case legislation Dáil 6 pm 28 November.

    NEVER AGAIN. Make the government hear us - Call for legislation for Savita on Wednesday November 28 at 6:00pm, Dáil Kildare Street.

    Clare Daly has reintroduced legislation on abortion that was rejected in the Dáil last April with a correction she said Minister for Health James Reilly had recommended. She said the debate had really highlighted how “inappropriate it is to have in our Constitution a clause that equates the life of the unborn with the life of the woman. That is the root of this problem.”

    The legislation will be debated on 27 & 28 November and the vote is expected to take place on Wednesday night, November 28. The Dail Debate will be broadcast live outside. We need to make the government hear us - we need to keep the pressure on.

    In 1908, in London, at the Olympics, Irish American Martin Sheridan announced “This flag dips for no earthly king," when the US team paraded past the royal box.

    Clare Daly should be so ashamed fo herself on so many levels... She will forever be known as the woman who advocated for child killing in Ireland...

    I'd like to see it legislated for but I don't think the government will let it fly tbh.

    Quick question- Does a referendum need to be held for the X case?
    The world is a very puzzling place. If you're not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else's mind.

    We already had a referendum 20 years ago.

    The government certainly won't let Daly be the one to do it, this will be voted down and probably voted on again in the new year if the redneck element of Fine Gael don't try and torpedo it first.

    But the Supreme Court made a ruling. To put that ruling into law, does a referendum need to take place?

    And again 10 years ago, the result of which retained the risk of suicide as justification for a termination, a fact that has been conspicuously absent from the debate thus far.

    Stop exploiting a tragic case to push your pro-abortion agenda. It's disgusting.
