As you say, it is all about the stigma, it is so frowned upon in Ireland, that even though 360+ plus Irish women go to the UK every week for an abortion. They still voted it down in the referendum. It makes no sense to me, one can only conclude that they feel so "evil", "dirty", whatever about even having it done in the first place that they won't vote for any part of it to be decriminalised.
Regardless of if a pro life person likes it or not, there are many valid reasons why terminations happen. And what might be valid for some, may not be valid for others. At the end of the day, people don't have the right to tell someone to terminate a severely disabled child, even though that child may need full time care for the rest of its life costing the health system loads. And so they shouldn't, if someone decides they want to raise a severely disabled child, then that is their choice.
I just don't get why the same respect can't be shown to the other side, the side that chooses that they can't raise a severely disabled child. The whole thing is really disrespectful.
