All opinions aside on how people will vote. Both sides of the campaign do my head in. Smug Know alls, rarely deal with logical facts, over simplify everything and only spout the stats/facts that suit their argument.

Its an incredibly deep and complex topic that should be treated as such.
The subject of abortion is. 

The subject of the 8th Amendment isn't - it's actually a very simple topic to grasp. 

It's simple because the 8th Amendment is a total disaster with no redeeming features - the decision to get rid of it should be a very easy one for people to make. 





The redeeming feature is its seeking to protect a life (if you believe it is a life) with equal regard to the life of a mother in the highest law of the land. The Constitution


It is flawed. But without it The new constitution will only protect born people. 
The Supreme Court has ruled that a zygote/embryo/foetus has no other right other than the right to life as per the 8th Amendment.

But the concept of a zygote/embryo/foetus having equal right to life to the born woman who is carrying it is utterly preposterous.

It is not a redeeming feature - it is the flaw. 

The constitution should only protect born people. 

There is such a thing as the legislature to enact laws that give some protection to the unborn. 

But you can't give equal rights in a situation where the rights directly compete

One has to take primacy, and this, obviously, should be the mother.

The Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland is backing a No vote in the referendum on the Eighth Amendment.

The 30,000-strong membership of the Protestant fraternity is mainly based in Northern Ireland but several hundred members are based in the Republic, an Orange Order spokesman said.

On Thursday, a Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland statement recommended “all those voting on this sensitive issue reflect on what abortion is and read what God says about the sanctity of human life”.

It said: “As we approach the referendum on the repeal of the Eighth Amendment on the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland we call upon our members, supporters and friends - eligible to exercise their democratic right - to vote No.

LOL

I'm a Yes voter and I'm sick of the amount of men and women fishing for likes on social media because of what they're voting, attention seeking of the highest order. Just exercise your right to vote and shut up going on about it.
