Ireland Is Safe, Despite the Propaganda
David Quinn, Irish Independent
IN the debate about abortion we are constantly dealing with what can only be described as 'asymmetrical hysteria', that is we are only ever outraged by anti-abortion laws and their consequences and never by the consequences of pro-abortion laws. The result of this 'asymmetrical hysteria' is that public opinion is constantly being pushed to favour more liberal abortion laws rather than more restrictive ones. Indeed, we are conditioned to believe that laws against abortion are the result of irrational dogmas that are placing women's lives at risk.
