I do not agree that it should be recommended, if a woman wishes to abort than I understand it but I support the right to do so for the same reason I support legal access to abortion, because a woman should have the right to make her own medical decisions about her body.
"But the modern Irish, contrary to popular impression, have little sense of history. What they have is a sense of grievance, which they choose to dignify by christening it history. History therefore is 'not so much a matter of learning from the past as of stirring old grievances to keep them on the boil'."
