In this episode, Niall is asking: If The Abortion Referendum Was Run Again, Would You Vote The Same?

The latest abortion figures released by the Government reveal that 10,033 abortions took place in Ireland in 2023, meaning 1 in 6 pregnancies end in abortion. Niall opens up the lines to callers to discuss whether they would change their vote if the 2018 repeal abortion referendum were held again.

Some callers express that they would still vote in favor of the repeal. They argue that women should have the right to make decisions about their own bodies and futures. Access to safe and legal abortion is seen as a crucial part of healthcare. The increase in numbers highlights the necessity of having these services available, ensuring women can receive care within Ireland without the additional stress and financial burden of traveling abroad. These callers believe that every woman’s situation is unique and emphasize the importance of providing safe and compassionate healthcare.

On the other hand, other callers state they would vote against the repeal if given another chance. They are deeply concerned by the statistic that 1 in 6 pregnancies now ends in abortion, feeling that it indicates insufficient support for women to consider other options. They argue that abortion should not be viewed as a form of contraception and advocate for more education and support systems for women. These callers believe society should focus on providing better support, including counseling and resources for those facing unplanned pregnancies, to foster a culture that values life and offers real alternatives to abortion.

Niall wraps up the discussion by summarizing the diverse viewpoints and reflecting on the balance between supporting women’s rights and addressing concerns about the increasing number of abortions.
