    Default Govt to approve Abortion Bill on Tuesday (SBP). Creighton may resign (Sindo)

    John Burns has just tweeted this in his weekly review of the Sunday papers.

    John burns ‏@JohnBurnsST Biz Post p3 lead: Cabinet expected to approve law allowing for limited abortion when it meets on Tuesday. (Expect a picket outside)

    He also tweeted

    john burns ‏@JohnBurnsST
    Sindo p1 also reports "informed sources" as claiming Lucinda Creighton will resign as minister if abortion legislation is "too liberal"

    So it looks as if all the pressure from hardline pro-lifers, some of it pretty vile, hasn't worked. What will they do between now and Tuesday to up the ante?

    I thought Lucinda and Leo were the darling twins of FG's youthful future Thatcher reincarnation squad?

    Is this the vile payoff to Labour for the vile regressive budget?

    Well done Enda, those pro life principles went cheap, didn't they?

    Well accepting the will of others certainly doesn't occur naturally there so we shall see.

    Kenny would happily let her go I imagine, she's never been anything but a thorn in his side.

    She's been a complete disgrace during this whole debate, a Minister for European Affairs that thinks we should ignore the ECHR and a barrister that thinks the Govt. can ignore the Supreme Court and the Constitution.

    If she goes then good riddance, I'm sure she'll have a great time sitting near Wallace and Ming.

    in what limited circumstances will abortion be legalised in? Will it be along the lines of the x case which could lead to abortion on demand?

    There is zero chance she will resign, she is aiming for a position in Europe and wont let anything get in the way of that ambition. A principled resignation wouldnt look good on her CV.

    No, no, we won't call it that, that is what it would be, but we'll call it something nice as though we were doing the foetus a favour by killing it.

    The X case is the constitutional law of the state, so of course it has to be based on it. The people were offered two chances to change X and voted not to so so. So by definition it has to be based on X.
