Anti-choice brigade care nothing for the truth

In today’s Evening Echo there is an opinion piece by a priest, Fr Jaimie Twohig, “Young Cork Priest Urges Fight Against Abortion

It is shocking, but not surprising, that this article including an outright lie is able to be published without any editorial comment by the newspaper:
“In reality, there is but a small group of people who want to see the eighth amendment repealed.”
This is simply not true.
Opinion polls consistently show an overwhelming majority in favour of liberalisation of access to abortion facilities that would require repeal of the Eighth Amendment and when the direct question about repeal is asked a clear majority indicate they are in favour of repeal. (Once again I refer people to the IFPA’s excellent web page collating results of polls on this issue – https://www.ifpa.ie/Hot-Topics/Abortion/Public-Opinion
The anti-choice brigade care nothing for the truth in their desire to maintain this key component of the oppression of women in Ireland.
