    Default First political party in Ireland to adopt a Pro Choice stance speaks.

    IRSP on the Right to Choose
    30th November 2012

    At the Irish Republican Socialist Partys first Ard Fheis in 1975, we were the first political party in Ireland to support a woman's right to control her own body and choose abortion, a position unanimously reaffirmed by delegates to this year's Ard Fheis. We call for immediate legislation to make abortion available, free of charge and on demand, through the health services on both sides of the border. We believe that any position short of that is insufficient and reactionary in 2012.

    Historically, women were viewed as the property of first their fathers and then their husbands. They had no authority over their own bodies, and they were taught that their highest duty was to reproduce, regardless of their own wishes. This view persists today, where paternalistic states, supported by reactionary religious bodies, pass laws to control what women can and cannot do with their own bodies. The right to choose abortion is the right of a woman to have sovereignty over her own body, and to make decisions and choices about her body. Neither church nor state has a role to play in regulating women's bodies.

    We believe it is a sad indictment of Irish society in 2012 that a woman’s right to choose is still being denied. Every week almost one hundred women are forced to leave this island under a cloak of secrecy to receive a medical procedure that should easily be carried out, free from society's imposed shame, in any hospital in Ireland.

    Rest of the statement can be found here. Irish Republican Socialist Forum - IRSP on the Right to Choose

    I can certainly see why the political front of an armed criminal and terrorist organisation would have no particular problem with the murder of unborn children.

    Or born ones. Or teenagers. Or adults. Or the elderly.

    I always find it ironic that that nasty piece of work Tony Gregory was sainted in life and now in death, despite his long-term dalliances with scum like the IRSP.

    So you'll give some women the "choice" to have an abortion,

    But you don't give other women who are opposed to abortion the "choice" of whether they have to pay for said abortion,

    And you call yourselves Republicans???

    What's all that about???
