Yes I know that.
My point was that he didn't singlehandedly bring in abortion.
He was upholding the will of the majority (66%+).

I'm sorry if that offends people, but a 66%+ majority voted it in. Not him.
That's not correct.
The people didn't vote for abortion. Check the text of the referendum.

You can twist it all you want.
But when 66%+ vote for abortion, they voted for abortion.

It makes no difference.
Another referendum today would have the same result.

Indeed, given demographic changes, the longer time goes on, the more the majority grows.

If that was the case they wouldn't have reversed the extermination result.

If I had set the question, the referendum would've been won by the pro-life side.

The public mood in the information age can be pendulum volatile, people are scatterbrains and the masses are easily manipulated.

Killing & commodifying our our young is extraordinarily destructive. It's a suicide lunge driven by a stunted liberal 'me fein' narcissism that doesn't acknowledge the future, with hollow babble about "health" that acts as insulation against a morally insane position.

Well yea, that's easy.
Just phrase the question in a way that makes abortion so restrictive even the most hardened supporters will vote against it.

''Before having an abortion, the written consent of 30 doctors must be obtained and the woman undergo painful vaginal investigation''.

Do you support killing our young? Yes or No.

That is what abortion is.
