Ireland's Labour Party pledges support for legal abortion

Catholic World News - February 14, 2011

Irish Catholic commentator David Quinn has provoked a lively controversy by arguing that in the country's coming elections, voters who choose the Labour Party will be advancing the cause of legal abortion.

When Labour leader Eamon Gilmore said that he would support legislation to liberalize Ireland's abortion law, Ruth Cullen of the ProLife Campaign charged that Labour was betraying its claim to serve the needy.

The controversy was underlined when Bernard Cantillon, the Equality Chairman for the Labour Party, said flatly: "I support and want abortion on demand in Ireland now."
