Ireland abortion debate heating up as Ireland decides its next step
April 19, 2018
The vote on whether to repeal the 8th Amendment of Ireland's constitution, paving the way to change abortion law in Ireland, is set for May 25, and campaigning is taking off.
The referendum to introduce abortion into Ireland is now just over a month away -- the vote will be on May 25 -- and the national campaigns are finally kicking into life after weeks when surprisingly little has been heard from either side. Now it's all action, a bit like a baby in the womb when it gets to the stage when it suddenly begins kicking. Suddenly, like a bad rash that appears overnight, large red anti-abortion posters materialized on lampposts all over Dublin last week.
