Ireland Votes to Kill Babies

What a shame.

Ireland’s prime minister has hailed the country’s decision to overturn a ban on abortion as the scale of the Yes campaign’s victory in the referendum became clear on Saturday.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, who led the Yes campaign, has said the country is united and has voted ‘resoundingly’ in favour of the abortion reform, as official results showed almost two-thirds supporting the change.

He pledged to introduce new legislation by the end of the year and called the repeal campaign’s landslide victory ‘the culmination of a quiet revolution’.

Returning officer Barry Ryan confirmed the Yes campaign’s victory on Saturday evening, with 1,429,981 ballots in favour (66.4 per cent) and 723,632 against (33.6 per cent).

Some day, sadly far in the future, people will look back on the age of abortion with the same moral indignation that we look upon the human sacrifices of the Aztecs.

    Genocidal liberals spreading their hate to another country.

  2. Kevin Scheunemann

    And if Ireland liberals are like American liberals, they will exterminate black babies at a rate triple of other babies.

    This is a victory over the Men who run the Catholic Church primarily but also a victory for women to have control over their own bodies.

    My sense is that the people of Ireland wanted to be free of Bronze aged patriarchy , even as some in this country want to take us back there .

    Congrats to my ancestoral home for choosing wisely and overwhelming in favor of women’s rights over Organized religuon .

    Oh, yah, the usual ……ahhh…..malarkey from Leftoid MH.

    If you are married, you should know that women generally ‘run’ the marriage.  If you are a Catholic you will find out that women have a LOT more influence in the Church than outsiders may think.  Looks different on the outside, but is very nearly the same on the inside.

    And those “women’s rights” you mention:  WHICH ‘women’?  The ones not yet born?  Hmmmmm??  Further, if women have a ‘right’ to kill, men do, too.  Now it’s only a matter of timing.  Ask anyone living in the inner cities about the real, long-term, effects of abortion there.  Or you could read a newspaper.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann

    Nor surprised Mark is supporting the racist extermination of babies.

    He is consistent.

  6. MHMaley

    Hard to sell me a Catholic Church after 12 years of Catholic school , Laundries in Ireland for wayward girls ( none of course for the men who impregnated them ) with decades of indentured servitude and a hierarchy who moved pedopholes around for decades and only stopped after its years of lies was exposed by the Boston Globe .

    Guys , it’s not your choice , especially for those who don’t share your faith – belief without evidence .

    Make sure your own daughters have every possible child they can under any circumstances And stay out of other peoples busines .

    “Minding one’s own beeswax” ….are you supposed to be a good example of that?

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    I’m not Cathoilic in the Roman sense.   I love how a stance against baby-extermination is a “Catholic church”.    There are those of us that are anti-genocide when it comes to babies and not part of a Roman Catholic church.

    Also, are you making an argument  that because of the lingering sins of the Roman Catholic church, justifies the lingering sin of baby extermination?….Sounds like you are making that argument.

    Glad you agree baby extermination is wrong…maybe someday we can get you to stand up for the innocent.

    Minor correction:  the “church” does not sin.  But her members do, no matter whether wearing a collar or not.

    Generally, those who left the Church because of ‘pedophiles’ or ‘mean nuns’ or ‘insert X complaint here’ are not being honest.  Usually, they left the Church due to an issue beneath the belt-line:  they wanted to marry one too many times, or they really, really, really wanted to use the Pill.

  10. MHMaley

    I’ve never understood why men , churches , cults think they own the reproductive process in women’s bodies . They don’t.

    Or why some people’s God’s are so obsessed with what people do in privacy especially when they are naked .

    The Church was against the pill in the 1960’s .
    They also taught that Aids was bad but condoms were worse in India in the 80’s and longer .

    But The Church allowed children to be systematically raped and moved the rapists around for years and had no intention to stop until it was stopped from the outside in 2002 and played games moving the money around to keep it from the survivors .

    It was probably scant consultation to the victims that it was the individual Priest raping them and in no way Holy Mother Church .

    Or that individuals ( not the Church ) hid assets to
    And slow walked settlements to the victims .

    Nope – the Pill is reason folks left .

    Got it !

    So racist baby killing is just dandy, as long as it is done under the liberal “virtue” of hating Roman Catholic Church?

  12. MHMaley

    Its really not a hard concept .
    Men have no control over women’s bodies

    Not Muslims , not Catholics , not Fundamentalist
    Christians .
    No one but the woman herself .

  13. Kevin Scheunemann

    So racist baby killing is OK.


  14. MHMaley

    Actually , the Catholic Church is as consistent on a few issues as I am

    The RCC :

    Anti war
    Anti death penalty
    Anti birth control ( as practiced by Mother Theresa in India and now Africa )

    Pro war when necessary
    Pro death penalty when appropriate
    Pro Women’s right to do what they want with their bodies – no church or mans opinions needed

    So my old church and I do have something in common – a consistency that those on all sides of those issues lack .

  15. Kevin Scheunemann


    So racist baby killing is OK in your book?

  16. crusadeusa

    Mark, you have no clue about the Holy Roman Catholic Church but you do have tons of uneducated biases. . . .the choice that women have is to not have sex – once they do, the body you are talking about is not the woman’s – but the baby’s. Their dna is completely different than the mother’s, making it NOT HER body. The Church is not ‘anti-war – there are few circumstances that war is just. Birth control is inconsistent with God’s plan in procreating. It’s really sad that Ireland went down this path. Now they will see the horrors of abortion like we do here. Many women will die from botched abortions and some will die because they will commit suicide from the depression they will have after it. I guess abortion is ok with you because you’ve already been born.

  17. Le Roi du Nord

    “Their dna is completely different than the mother’s”

    Ahhh, no it isn’t.  Another science denier.

  18. Kevin Scheunemann


    So you deny the science that life begins at conception?

    Why are you a science denier?

  19. Le Roi du Nord


    Nope, I didn’t say that at all.   You are making stuff up again.  No one should be surprised.

  20. Kevin Scheunemann


    So you would agree Mark is a science denier?

  21. Le Roi du Nord


    I don’t know who Mark is, but I would say from the quote from crusadeusa that they are, “Their dna is completely different than the mother’s”.

    Why do you persist in making things up?

  22. MHMaley

    The Roman Catholic Church facilitated the rape of young children . They and you don’t get to tell others how to live their lives ever !
    Full stop

    Kev is just playing . He know’s I’m an evidence based person which means we are polar opposites on the topic of faith – belief without evidence .

    But he runs his business well and his ice cream is delicious .

  23. dad29

    do what they want with their bodies

    So let’s talk about killing babies, MH, since all the science tells us that this is precisely what abortion is.

    At what point in time should we STOP killing babies?  Why stop after birth?

    I’ll say this for you:  unlike a lot of people, you left the Church and advocate baby-killing.  Others remain ‘members’ and do the same.  At least you are not a snake.
