Anti-abortion — but we still pay
Sir — Claiming to be prochoice is all well and good, but what about the third of the electorate that voted against abortion in the referendum last May: what about their right to choose?
Soon this third of people, through the public purse, will be forced to pay for something which they find abhorrent, objectionable, repugnant and cruel, not to mention immoral, something which may be deemed one day to have been even worse than what went on at the Tuam mother and baby home, for instance.
And yet pay they must, because they will be given no choice. For in this new, secular, dare I say totalitarian, Ireland in which we now live, it would appear some choices are to be made more equal than others, and while some will have the right to choose to abort the lives of their unborn babies, many others will not have the right to choose not to pay for it.
