You are such a clown, There are no winners here today and you are so arrogant that you are blind to this fact. A Yes vote will see us turn into England within ten years and abortion on demand will be a reality no matter what anyone on the yes side says, a No vote gives everyone a chance to rethink this proposal and go back to the drawing board so the 8th can be amended and a solution can be found to deal with the hard cases without opening the door for wholesale slaughter. I fully agree with the yes side that abortion is needed in certain hard cases and real emergency pregnancy cases such as FFA, incest or rape of a minor or a special needs individual getting assaulted and raped.

Everyone knows the government will keep us voting on this until we deliver the results wanted by Europe but today let's show Europe and the world that we can find a better way. This country proved beyond doubt how progressive we are by being ahead of the curve with the Yes vote in the SSM referendum let's do the same today by voting No so we can think about this and do it right for future generations not yet born.

Control of women and forcing them to carry a pregnancy no matter the circumstances is wrong on every level. Vote yes, change is coming, roll on 11.30pm

The No campaign have had 35 years to come up with proposals on the 'Hard cases' they failed and worse they blocked every attempt by others to deal with them. So f@ck off with your hypocrisy. Change is coming, roll on 11.30pm

I haven't seen one poster, etc. I stayed well away, and out of all this hoo-ha. I read the Referendum Commission Leaflet and that's about it. And btw my mind was made up years ago. And I'm off now to the polling place to vote yes. You never know at this hour, I might even bump into a few smiling nuns there. Thank you, rus.

A no today is the best of two bad options, don't worry I knew straight away that concept of finding a better way would go right over your head but hopefully the more sane and calm people will vote no so this can be done properly as an amendment.

Why will we never again "be lawmakers"?

The people are sovereign. We can change Bunreacht na hÉireann at any time in the future.

I voted yes.

Does anyone know whether rte are going to give us the yes-no figures in the exit poll tonight? They say they will issue "details" of the poll tonight on the LLS.

Your Sister may think that she knows how her Sisters will vote. She doesn't and neither do you.

I voted NO.
I rejected the proposed amendment.
I voted NO because it is a BAD proposal that allows for abortion of babies outside the extreme cases that have been so widely discussed in the media.
I voted NO because I want an amendment that deals with the hard cases but does not allow for abortion of healthy babies up to twelve weeks old, which is what the 'CHOICE' brigade is plotting.
I voted NO because today is my chance to stand up for BABIES and say if BABIES could vote, they'd vote NO too.
Today I stood up for the BABIES, and I voted NO
