The Great Abortion Debate continues tonight.

The links contained in this OP has the most up to date information as far as possible as well as information about the panellists on where they stand on the topic, so I‘ve kept the text in the OP to a minimum to allow you time to read the links before the show.

I’d expect a really good show tonight considering the panellists involved. Well worth tuning into …

Jakers that line up looks like one against three! No balance there or am I missing something?

It's Groundhog Day! as Vincent persists in flogging this dead horse for the umpteenth time with a panel of talking heads whose views are set in stone.

Presumably the poor fool has never heard Einstein's definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

Well, here's one thing that's different - I haven't felt any urge to watch any of Vincent's tired shows thus far in 2013!

I find it interesting there are two Priests on the panel.

Is it primed for Vincent to Grandstand..?
For a dickhead like Vinnie, "grandstanding" normally means not using the courtesy title "Father" when he addresses a priest. He believes that this radical approach will give him street cred with the likes of RBB, Ming and Clare Daly.

Not always anyway. I paid particular attention the last time a priest was on ... he certainly introduced them as Fr.

Fair enough; maybe it's just Father Sean Healy that Vinnie treats like a shoe shine boy in Mumbai.
