The thirty two T.D's voting against Constitutional
Amendment have either no shame, or are, totally ignorant of what the
actual debate was about.
debate was about the people's right to decide the constitution, and any
Fianna Fail T.D who opposed this right, neglects the words of Eamon de
Valera, when he put the original Constitution to the the people of
Ireland in 1937: "the Constitution is a document owned by the people of
Fianna Fail should not ratify any of their party T.D's
who voted against the proposal. It is obvious these T.D's imagine they
were voting against abortion.
One can only surmise how these T.D's will react if the majority of the people, vote to repeal the Eight Amendment.
the Republic of Ireland can allege it is Christian, the reality is, it
is a Democratic Nation, the will of the people is sacrosanct and
outweighs the conscience, be it genuine or faux, of each and every T.D.
it comes to the actual referendum, the ballot is secret; in the hands
of each individual elector, who has the right to vote as they wish, free
of any interference from any group.
