Yes vote an ex­am­ple of in­hu­man­ity

Irish Independent - - Letters & Editorial Comment -

■ I can­not be­lieve it. Two-thirds of the coun­try’s vot­ers opt­ing for the right to be able to legally ter­mi­nate the life of a per­fectly healthy in­fant, up to 12 weeks old, just be­cause they want to.

To me, the un­born in­fant is the cen­tral fig­ure in this sit­u­a­tion but has no say in the mat­ter.

If it had, how would it vote? No need to an­swer that ques­tion.

The cel­e­bra­tions of the Yes vot­ers was sick­en­ing for me to be­hold. Cel­e­brat­ing a de­scent into bar­barism.

The slaugh­ter of the in­no­cents springs to mind.

The ref­er­en­dum was all about hu­man­ity and re­li­gion was only a di­ver­sion. The Church could and should have played a much stronger part in that con­text.

The Yes vote was an­other case of man’s in­hu­man­ity to man.
