And he's done in on British radio. Which is....interesting.
Now that bits interesting. The pro-choice movement's been very successful in their work so far as demonstrated by the polling. The discussion is no longer "Will Ireland liberalise its abortion laws", the discussion is "Just how liberal will these changes be".Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said he will campaign to liberalise Ireland's abortion laws.
The Fine Gael leader had said earlier this month that he believed 'Ireland's abortion laws are too restrictive and need to be liberalised' and he reiterated that point in an interview on BBC Radio 4 this morning.
Mr Varadkar also said that he would be campaigning to change the laws regarding abortion.

“I’ll be campaigning for them to be changed and to be liberalised, yes," Mr Varadkar said when asked if he would be campaigning for change.
"My own views on this matter have evolved and I think sometimes the term pro-life and pro-choice can be misunderstood. I think even people who are in favour of abortion in certain circumstances are pro life. I still believe in life. I understand there are circumstances under which pregnancies can't continue."
But Varadkar's statement indicates he's at the more conservative side of that liberalisation as opposed to the more liberal 12 week rule being discussed.
