Savethe8th issued the following response to comments by Simon Coveney today
"Simon Coveney is asking the public to vote YES and then to trust him to vote NO. His government has proposed an abortion regime so extreme he says he cannot support it - yet he is asking the public to do just that.
The bottom line is that if this referendum is passed, an abortion on demand regime through three months of pregnancy will be adopted by the Government.
Simon Coveney wants the public to vote for this legislation, so that he can then cast a protest vote against it. The public will not fall for this trickery. Mr. Coveney is trying to run with the horse, and hunt with the hounds"
