Abortion is not country's wish

FIONA O'Malley is very much mistaken if she believes the people of Ireland have expressed a wish to legislate for abortion (Letters, February 15).
In 1992 -- and again in 2002 -- the people were asked to dilute constitutional protection of the right to life in referenda and the people rejected both proposals.
Far from supporting legalised abortion, as Ms O'Malley claims, the people have voted to protect life three times in three different decades (including 1983).
