Legislating for X Case is just beginning of this saga

The final Dail debate on the abortion bill has taken place. Soon it will become law. The X Case will have been legislated for and we will be told that it is a further sign that we have 'matured' as a nation.
The Taoiseach will continue to emphasise the 'restrictive' nature of the bill, as though that is the point. The point is that the bill will allow doctors to kill children in the womb if a woman is deemed suicidal even though there is no medical evidence that a single woman will be saved as a result, something that is accepted by the Master of the Rotunda, Sam Coulter-Smith, a Protestant.
It's important to point out he is a Protestant lest his views be automatically dismissed for one of the great sins in the catechism of political correctness, being a Catholic. Let us never forget that the modern liberal in his anti-Catholicism is the direct moral descendant of the one-eyed nationalist of old.
