Looking at the result of today's RedC poll result, I'm inclined to see signs of a sea-change in the public mood.
Majority support X case legislation - poll - RTÉ News
8% want no legalisation.
26% want a referendum to remove suicide from the X Case ruling.
29% want abortion on demand.
35% full X Case legislation.
We're entering new territory here. There is little appetite for the favoured anti-abortion strategy of calling for another referendum, and perhaps most surprisingly, only 8% are totally opposed to abortion in all circumstances. Is this the beginning of a new approach to this thorny question? I, for one, believe it is.
