Will legal abortion by Irish leader's heritage?

Catholic World News - November 30, 2012

Irish columnist David Quinn wonders whether the country's Taoiseach (prime minister), Enda Kenny, recognizes the historic gravity of the decision he faces regarding the country's abortion law.

Enda Kenny has a fateful decision to make. If he simply codifies existing practice he will meet little or no opposition.
But if he goes further than that he will be remembered as the Taoiseach who introduced the direct killing of unborn children to Ireland only weeks after the passage of a referendum that supposedly protects the rights of children.
