    Default Abortion: Labour's price for keeping Reilly

    So it's official, James Reilly is to stay on as Health Minister

    Crisis-prone Reilly to stay as Health Minister - National News - Independent.ie

    And this comes a day after he said on RTE Radio (six O'Clock news) that he'll introduce legislation on abortion before the end of January.

    With speed of King Herod, Labour have used the christmas period to target the unborn and they have imho leveraged Reilly's difficulties - which I wouldn't be surprised to hear if their spinmeisters had engineered - into presenting FG with an option: Legalise abortion or Reilly goes.

    Labour know Reilly is instrumental to Kenny. Reilly supported Kenny in the heave. And he is politically indispensable. He is also crucial to what FG want to achieve in health.

    So they have played a blinder.

    Reilly's appointment of former abortion rights campaigner Tony O'Brien to head the HSE and the HSE's subsequent choice of Dr. Arulkumaran - who has spoken openly of the need to legalise abortion in Ireland

    Coincidence?

    Yeah, right.

    Gimmemore has lost the plot, if this is true.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    (1) Reilly is not indispensible.
    (2) Reilly himself is leading the move to legislate for women's health.

    Other than those 2 fatal flaws, nice theory.
    If there is a future, it will be Green.

    Not if you consider where Labour are comingn from now.

    There priorities aren't getting re-elected. Just ensuring 5 years in gov't to protect the croke park deal and legalise abortion.

    That is all they care about. They will sacrifice the child benefit/carers allowance/young nurses on low salaries/medical card holders....all with be thrown by the wayside to protect their union buddies and ensure that unborn children can be legally killed.

    THe modern left stopped caring about ordinary people long ago

    Ah Jesus would ya shut it ya paranoid lump.

    Abortion would have been legislated for regardless of who was in govt. The Savita case, public opinion on the matter and the Supreme Court ruling in the x case would have ensured that.

    As every competent expert agrees there is no evidence Savita died of anything other than sepsis.

    She just happend to be pregnant

    The fact that Reilly wants to legalise abortion before the results of her inquiry are published proves that something rotten is going on.

    They know when that inquiry comes out there will be no basis for legalisign abortion.

    But as Conor Brady admitted in the Irish Times last week we wouldn't be here but for the Savita story.

    It is typical Labour tactics: Whip up a chimera of media frenzy, use it to stampede government into action but surpress any facts that might contradict the need for what you are about to do.

    To be honest we'd all be asking "what Savita case?" if it wasn't for Ivana Bacik hijacking the unfortunate event. I'd say there's something to the OP.
    The more things change....

    Shhhhh... there's nothing to get the P.ie posters going like a thread tittle with "abortion" in it and "James Reilly" tagged on at the end off it for good measure, as is the OP's intention! It's like the proverbial rocket up the backside of P.ie posters and watch this thread take off!

    All too off the back of an Indo article!

    Coincidence? The same conclusion was reached at a meeting I and many disgruntled Labour voters attended not an hour ago.
