As Vinny promised last night, it’s yet another debate on the abortion issue for Tonight with #VINB. Why John ‘you only think you hate me’ McGuirk is on this show, I really have no idea. So, if you’re not fed up already about the abortion debate then you may find tonight’s show to be of interest. Or, like me you’re already busy flicking through to see what’s on the other channels …

FFS I'm sick of this abortion debate. Bread and circuses. Except the bread is running out.

BTW, your OPs are a thing of beauty, Norm.

Fantastic stuff!!

Well I guess the only silver lining here is that the w*nker Kieran Allen won't be on...

Hilarious he was last night though... barely able to contain himself when salivating about the civil disobedience he craves so much... In fact I thought he might give himself a stiffy the the way he was going on..

How disappointed would Kieran be I wonder, if once the disobedience commenced the plebs turned on parasites like him..? Cos let's face it, to have tossers like Kieran pontificating as he hoovers up his fat publicly funded salary shows what an obnoxious hypocrite he is...

And his new hair cut makes him look like Joe Pasquale which is quite funny too, considering the utter sh!te he comes out with ad nauseum...

As for abortion... nothing funny about that...

This won't be fun.

So sick of it too! Heard that Patricia Casey on the radio while I was driving today - almost crashed the car!! :mad:

If we must be subjected to debate upon debate, let's hope we hear from people like Dr. Rhona Mahony.

Casey has a not very well hidden agenda. She can't be seen as an independent expert.

I am just at a loss to understand why we have so many items throughout every media on this. Haven't the people twice given their decision?, hasn't the Surpreme Court? hasn't the European Court of Justice.

Why are we still debating it?

We pay legislators enough [some would say too much] to legislate, so I wish they'd just feck off and do the job they are paid to do. Yea, yea, yea, we know it's difficult but so are many decisions ... just do it. :mad:

Two pro-choice, three if you include Vinnie,
presumably the other journalist will attempt to sit on the fence and we'll have to wait and see for McGuirk.

That's the balance thing taken care of.

Exactly. She has said it all! Let's hope we don't have to suffer a repetition of her nauseating rants!!
I'm afraid she'll be all over the media. Saw a very bitchy dog fight between her and the other female expert psych a few weeks ago.

People like Susan McKay, Ivanna Bacik, Ronan Mullen nor David Quinn are not at all typical of the Irish people - and they're only on air for shrill OTT views on social issues

Plenty more have their (respective) views without the shrill theatrics, and #VinB would well serve the Irish public by finding them

We have the constitution. Think of it as a very heavy wet blanket that we have to carry around.

I would hate to have to go to a psychiatrist like Patricia Casey, not much of the "milk of human kindness" there....

Ah yes, the Dr. Rhona Mahony who today told the Health Committee hearing that she feared going to jail because of a lack of clarity in the law surrounding medical terminations.

This 'fear' developed rather suddenly in November 2012 as she had not publically expressed such sentiments in the previous 15 years of working as an OB/GYN.

Listen to medical experts rather than the unqualified loons on both extremes.

That's just crazy talk.
