    Default Burton criticises 'Herod Enda' insult, silent about death threats to Archbishop Martin

    A letter from a pro-life supporter calling Enda Kenny "worse than Herod" is unhelpful language "either to their own [pro-choice] argument or to the country" according to Joan Burton, but pro-abortion/'choice' nuts sending death threats to Archbishop Diarmuid Martin apparently doesn't merit mention or expressions of concern at all.

    Bizarrely, Joan Burton also claims not to know 'anybody anywhere' in favour of abortion on demand:
    Ms Burton said she did not know "anybody anywhere" who is in favour of abortion on demand.
    How could Joan possibly forget her party colleague Ivana Bacik who has outdone herself at lowering the tone of the abortion debate by insulting the 'C' case woman who expressed regret at her abortion and branding the Bishops who spoke at the abortion hearing as misogynistic?

    We need an assassination in this country. Just because it's such fun seeing the anti-abortion and pro-choice people going at each other.
    Why not take it to another level?

    Your giving out about double standards but you start your post by describing pro-life people as supporters
    whereas pro-abortion/choice (your words) are nuts.

    I heard this whinging from the Irish prime minister. In saying that there will be no abortion on demand in Ireland it's quite clear that like the late King Herod the Irish prime minister Kenny will now in all likelyhood legislate to permit a limited number of unborn babies to be murdered.

    Best summary of the situation according to two referendums, the Supreme Court, the European Court of Human Rights and Irish public opinion polls I've ever seen.

    Pro or anti reality check is that Irish abortions will continue as usual in the UK no matter what anyone does or says.

    This is a distraction from the serious issues the country faces and Burton et al should remember less said the better.

    The Christian who wrote to Enda kenny comparing him (in less favourable terms) to Herod is as bad as the Christian who wrote to Dr Martin with the death threat. These are head-bangers with utter conviction that their views are the really correct ones.
    Extremists exist on both sides and they equally damage their respective viewpoints. In fairness to Kenny, I thought he explained his position in clear terms - no floodgate for abortions on demand; a clarification on the Supreme Court ruling. Not an easy task but no matter what he does, the extremists will disagree with the wording. Carry on, taoiseach, and ignore the cranks - the average person will understand the difficulty.
