Irish anti-abortion campaign concedes it has lost referendum

People from the

VOTERS in Limerick have been thanked for their support as the referendum on removing the eighth amendment looks set to pass.

The first to declare was Galway East, a traditionally conservative constituency in the west that nonetheless returned a large majority for repealing the abortion ban by a?60.2 percent to 39.8 percent vote.

Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar pledged to introduce new legislation by the end of the year, labelling the change "the culmination of a quiet revolution".

"I said in recent days that this was a once in a generation vote". But I believe we have voted today for the next generation.

"The people have spoken", Mr. Varadkar said following Friday's vote.

Ailbhe Smyth, 71, co-director of the official Together for Yes campaign, said real-life testimonies from women affected by the ban had helped swing the vote.

Ministers have promised to allow terminations within the first 12 weeks, subject to medical advice and a cooling-off period, and between 12 and 24 weeks in exceptional circumstances.

Homeland security chief: I haven't seen intel that showed Russian Federation favored Trump
Wray. "That the specific intent was to help President Trump win I am not aware of that.", Nielsen said. Nielsen said she was unaware of that assessment, which has been public for over a year.

One of Ireland's leading anti-abortion groups says the abortion referendum result is a "tragedy of historic proportions" in a statement that all but admits defeat in the historic vote. The constitutional amendment completely banning abortion, even risking the life of the mother, was their last bastion.

Surprisingly, the poll also suggests that supporters of more liberal abortion laws may have triumphed throughout the country, not just in the cosmopolitan capital, Dublin, where a strong youth vote had been anticipated.

"Wonderful, wonderful, today is wonderful!" said Eileen Shields, wearing a sticker reading "We made history". And it has finally shown compassion and granted the right to self-determination to Irish women.
