They're already out on the street with giant abortion porn fetish pictures. I'd bet the same busybodies would tut at a woman breastfeeding in public too, but it's okay for them to show giant diddies on the street!

Well fair play to them !

You do realise that the whole AOD agenda

- has a strong Anti National element to it don't you?

RTE Headline:

Martin says substantial number of FF members support 8th repeal

Further down:

Speaking on RTÉ’s Prime Time last night, Mr Martin, however, said accepted that a majority of parliamentary party members were probably against repealing the Eighth Amendment.

Surely that should have been the headline!

RTE :roll:

I was hoping that I would have an opinion on the 8th amendment this morning but it is still unclear what my view should be.

I was waiting for the Taoiseach to say something or my local TDs or their parties but they're all still waiting to see what way the wind is blowing.

The danger is that if a person or politician makes up their own mind on a matter of principle they could be out of step.

Varadkar is once again shown up as a coward and cynical opportunist. Fair dues to MM.

As Gerhard Dengler posted above:
He was badly caught out by McCullagh on Primetime.

McCullagh recited a few of Martin's assertions made only a few months ago saying how he opposed abortion in cases of rape, for example. In those statements, Martin referred to his friend who had been conceived through rape (that was his statement), when McCullagh asked if Martin had changed his position about this friend, you could see the penny dropping with Martin.​

Kieran Hartley has demanded leader Micheal Martin carries out an urgent investigation into which members of his party knew about the assaults and when they learned of it.


He also wants ex-Minister Brendan Kenneally – a cousin of predator Bill Kenneally – kicked out of the party over what he called a “horrifying scandal”.

Mr Hartley, speaking at a conference in Dublin yesterday, said: “I believe the time has now come for Uachtarain Fianna Fail, Micheal Martin, to say – as a matter of public record – when the party became aware of the abuse.”

If Micheál Martin left his position as leader, who would replace him?

Yes. Particularly the older ones. That's what many rural FF deputies are worried about. Rural Ireland is opposed to abortion on demand and FF are, at this point in time a rural party. Martin is gambling on the fact that these rural voters will have nowhere else to go. So a lot depends on whether FG accept danger to mental health as grounds for abortion.
