Did anyone else see about the Citizen's Convention on the 8th amendment (protection of the life of the unborn) on the news yesterday. It seems like they are pushing for more liberal abortion and RTE are going along with it, as they do. Apparently the majority are calling for a less restrictive abortion "regime" (as they phrased it), whatever that can possibly mean. Ireland already has a very permissive stance on abortion since the introduction of the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act 2013, which now allows abortion up to 9 months gestation if the mother is deemed suicidal or other conditions are met. That convention seems like it was preordained.
