Debate On Abortion


Sir, - Would Ivana Bacik kindly stop deluding herself and, moreover, misleading others on the question of an abortion referendum (December 13th).

A recent poll carried out on behalf of the Pro-Life movement - and reported in The Irish Times, revealed that a substantial majority of people desired another referendum on the issue. It is hardly appropriate for Ms Bacik to refer to any majority as "a small group". - Yours, etc.,

Brian Hunt, Enniskerry, Co Wicklow.
