David Quinn: Didn't I warn you that a vote for Labour was a vote for abortion?

IN the run-up to the general election last year, I wrote a column that was headlined "Any vote for the Labour party is a vote for abortion". I was roundly attacked for this by, among other people, Michael D Higgins.

But subsequent events have fully vindicated what I wrote at that time. Labour is pushing hard to permit abortion in Ireland on the grounds of the X Case, and members of the party including the likes of Ivana Bacik and Ciara Conway, want to go even further than this.

However, what I did not know when I cast my vote last year is that a vote for Fine Gael could soon turn out to have been a vote for abortion as well.
