2010-12-20T14:32:58.794+00:00

I think I agree with what Varadkar said. It's not an embryos fault on which way it was brought into this world. A lot of doctors I know agree that they find abortion a horrific thing. Perhaps this is an area that the Catholic Church got it right?

Nevertheless, I don't believe its the place of Government to show moral authority to its people. While they should discourage

Blogging in Ireland can be a bit like hitting your head against the wall, Mor. Here's one who knows.

Well said. Let's hope that this ruling will be the first step to introducing the right to choose - in their own country - for Irish women.

Keep up the good fight!



Thanks Alice!

I couldn't agree more, with every word you said. The issue regularly frustrates me to the point of speechlessness, you've said it all. x

It's never our fault GM. We are the victims of everybody else.

Mostly we got the government we deserve. And now we have the EU having to bail us out while we pout and stamp our foot!

2010-12-04T18:13:20.764+00:00

What is most shocking is the fact they are now trying to blame the EU for the mess. One half-wit somewhere in blogland spoke of "imperialists" - further proof that most who use the term don't know the first thing about it.

You see, it's not "our" fault (and exempt most of us who didn't get involved in the speculative madness). It's not the greedy

And the issue still continues - RTE has claimed that 200 people were on tonights march to protest against Garda brutality, the Irish Times says 500.

2010-09-28T11:11:40.418+01:00

not everyone needs to be told that these adverts aren't a realistic depiction of reality, nor do they need people with vaginas holding their hands and telling them what to think because otherwise they couldn't figure this out on their own.

That's true Anony. Not everyone needs handholding but many do. People with vaginas and well as people with penises. I point it

2010-09-24T19:33:45.011+01:00

I'm sorry, I don't really buy this idea that sexualized advertising = rape. That's several steps too far. I think these ads are cynically moronic and I'm not at all interested in buying the product advertised, but I'm not going to pretend like this is the same thing as sanctioning rape. And that's despite the fact that I have this crippling affliction to my decision making

2010-08-25T20:48:12.600+01:00

The abuses in the industrial schools go back a lot further than independence. The system (which is quintessentially Victorian) was established by the British government under the Industrial Schools Act (1868), and farmed out to religious orders.

In his book Priests and People in Ireland, published in 1902, Michael McCarthy notes:

"The industrial school, which the

2010-08-18T11:10:43.858+01:00

Thanks for your comment nahbios. However, I do not accept that the church's teachings on abortion are scientifically based. Science and the church have never been particularly close and the facts are that for many women abortion is a literal lifesaver.

The church's attitude to abortion is not only highly dangerous but it is completely irrational. Only an organisation buried in

2010-08-18T09:25:20.085+01:00

Thanks RamblingMan and I agree with the government we put in place. But the scum that occupy the position at the moment do not even seem capable of rational self-interest, which at least most FFers can manage. It's a long way from enlightened self-interest but shooting oneself in the foot is not a great survival strategy, historically

great post mór ...

to answer your question "what is wrong with the government?"

we are. end of story. we let them away with it. time after time. there is a major disconnect in the irish psyche between the way we see the government and the way we see ourselves - one doesnt seem to exist to serve the other.

2010-08-15T15:31:37.369+01:00

First time reader here.

With regard to Varadkar's acceptance of Church's teachings on abortion: can we not recognise that, despite the abuse scandals (which themselves did not permeate the entire Church), these teachings are based on science and reason? Your argument against their teachings based on the actions of a minority is an ad hominem.

Likewise, the argument

This is terrifying. In developing countries where this is still performed, is there adequate care given to women after it is performed?

2010-05-29T14:00:57.394+01:00

True. What pisses me off royally is that all Eircom's competitors have to wait until Eircom does the business before offering an alternative.

Imagine a HSE with Eircom's management style!

2010-05-29T13:54:18.287+01:00

Eircom's pandering to IRMA (in the absence of any actual laws) is nothing compared to the abysmal wastefulness of Eircom's management.

An illustrative example (just one of many): design guy is hired on contract to provide services that in-house staff are more than capable of doing and, when he arrives, needs to be trained by same staff as he lacks the skills in the relevant

Oh yawn. Way to miss the point, Henry. Nudity is not a problem. Sexuality is not a problem. Neither are relevant. Did you miss the half naked men above?

Objectification of female bodies is the problem.

"Classic!

Well portraying women as sex objects contributes to Ireland's rape culture, which has become so evident in recent months."

typical ultra pc reaction for such a small add campaign.
