The Love Both campaign has accused Taoiseach Leo Varadkar of keeping the public in the dark about what repeal of the Eighth Amendment would mean.
This weekend, the Taoiseach claimed that if the referendum passed ‘there will not be unrestricted abortion.’
Commenting on the Taoiseach’s remarks, Dr Ruth Cullen of Love Both said: “It doesn’t matter how many times the Taoiseach says his proposal is restrictive, it won’t change what the proposal provides for which is abortion on demand and nothing else.
“Either the Taoiseach himself is not clear about what the proposal contains, which is hard to believe, or else he is simply not prepared to come clean with the Irish people about how extreme the proposal is and how it provides for unrestricted abortion in the first 3 months of pregnancy and even at later stages too on very vague ‘health’ grounds.
“The Taoiseach certainly misrepresented this reality over the weekend. Given the seriousness of the issue, it’s deplorable that he would hide from voters the full facts about the referendum proposal.”
