Vote on Clare Daly’s pro-choice bill calling for a referendum on 8th Amendment to Constitution

34thAmendmentVote

So the Labour Party and Sinn Féin show their true political colours lining up with the reactionary right to defend a constitution that denies women the basic human right to control their own bodily integrity and reproductive life.

This is also another example of the very limited democratic nature of the capitalist parliamentary system. The polls consistently show over 30% in favour of women’s right to choose and over 80& in favour of abortion when a women’s health is in danger.

And here it is only just over 10% in favour of a referendum which is a necessary prerequisite for either of these improvements on the current draconian situation.
