Surely many posters on here want white Irish to have as many kids as possible? Or did I misunderstand that message.
Yes and no. It seems we simultaneously want that but we also give out about working class people who have too many kids.

Just when the world was biting its nails in the hope that President Trump and Supreme Leftist leader Kim Flung Dung would pull it off, Irish people are warned by a Doctor of an impending disaster. The annual money our wonderful government put aside to provide vasectomies ran out in March. Government views the procedure which is carried out on men as essential in the liberation of women who don’t have to bother about contraception.

https://www.independent.ie/irish-ne...or-year-spent-by-march-warns-gp-36996360.html

A survey carried out in Britain found that of 1,000 married men who were vasectomized in 2013, only 34 (.34%) of their wives later conceived a baby. Waterford GP Dr Fergus McMarried said that "They are saying a lot of people who go for the abortions are not 22-year-olds at the start of planning their families.
"There are actually quite a good few people at the end of their family planning, the 38-year-olds, and they are surprised when a crisis pregnancy occurs and they are heading over to the United Kingdom for an abortion.
"If that is the case, you can prevent that altogether by making vasectomy more widely available and when people are decided their family is done they can go and get a vasectomy and that's the end of it," he told the 'Irish Medical Times'.

Doctors association President Mattie O’Tool denounced a proposal by the Minister for Health Simon Harrisment to have the procedure carried out over 2 years to spread the money out for another 3 months. A half vasectomy is no vasectomy at all he said. "You were better complete the job in one operation than split it into 2 stages," he said.

"If that is the case, you can prevent that altogether by making vasectomy more widely available and when people are decided their family is done they can go and get a vasectomy and that's the end of it," he told the 'Irish Medical Times'.
Nurse Bridie Scalpel said an injection of cash is needed because with no funding available she expects to be laid off and has contacted her union the INO, seeking severance pay.

I invite discussion, but I feel there should be a helpline for couples on the waiting list, but whose male partner was not yet done. I think the best thing is to abstain until next year and hope more money will become available.

It would be interesting to know how many Piesters with strong views on who should breed and to what extent are themselves parents or ever likely to be.

One presumes that money was for men with medical cards. It's a really simple operation so it can't cost much. It's only day surgery and you're fully awake. It has practically zero side affects and it means no chance of a crisis pregnancy.
Fully awake? You're joking? No anesthetic? I take it you are a woman, what would you know about men feeling pain?

Did you do honours maths in the Leaving?
I only got as far as the Group Cert because vocational schools did not offer the leaving to working class kids. I did an adult education course years later in Business studies and found the maths too easy, boring.

A strange thing about my 2nd level education was that they taught me Venn Diagrammes which no one understood and I could never apply in real life.. They were used only (as far as I am aware) by John Bell the famous physicist who in formulating his famous inequality theory proofing Einstein was mistaken. . So Ireland was teaching snotty nosed roughins maths which were only used for the most complicated and controversial question in physics.

You are correct, 34/1000 = 3.4% and not .034% . I had to type from the magazine and could not find my glasses at the time.

A simpler way to put it is that of every 1,000 men who got it done, 34 of their wives become pregnant afterwards. I would have thought that is a very high failure rate.

How could they have possibly become pregnant?

Just to clarify, I had some typos in my posts, but corrected them now. I did provide a link to the newspaper article to prove Its not made up.

I know if I had it done and my wife or woman friend got pregnant, I look for my money back under the Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act. There should have been a public inquiry into these mishaps.

Yes, it called a 'local anaesthetic' (the correct spelling, not the yank spelling). Fully awake the whole time.

They are only really 'best effort' as the tube tying is not 100% guaranteed to work, unfortunately. I know of a few anecdotal cases whereby it didn't work but have never heard of anyone I know having an issue either?

Schrodinger's population.

We want loads of pure white Irish children to be born, even forced on women, but we don't want to pay for any more than two of them.

I know a few men who chose to have vasectomies because they didn't want to have any more children but their partners/wives kept having ''accidents''. It isn't a cheap procedure but it's becoming more common and I think it's a good thing when men take a responsible approach to contraception when they don't want to have any more children or any children at all. I think a lot of women would be delighted if their partners chose to have a vasectomy.

One of the strange side effects of the vasectomy operation is that where partners and wives do become pregnant afterwards,, they sometimes have children of different physical features than their father. The hair colour and complexion is completely different to earlier children.The operation must effect the sperm in some way. Q chap near me had 4 children with blkack hair and dark complexion, he got it done and his wive has a red haired baby with red freckled complexion.

Most of us carry the gene for red hair so its not unusual to see it pop up in families with very different colouration.

There will never be any questions asked about something like those pregnancies.

It might lead to a discussion about the nature of women if some of those who became pregnant were found to be playing away from home.

Bear in mind that when a women tells her husband or partner that she is pregnant he simply accepts that the child is his. This is an act of faith in a woman that might not always be justified.

Have you ever wondered why we have no national D.N.A database where D.N.A is taken at birth?.

There have been cases where the sperm does get through years after a vasectomy. Of course it happens that women play away, but I've read about cases where the wives of men who'd had vasectomies years before became pregnant and it almost destroyed the marriage, until a sample was taken and showed active sperm. In one case it was 7 years after the vasectomy.
