Recollections of a lost Referendum

Recollections of a lost Referendum
I must say , I thorougly enjoyed every moment of my time as a pro life volunteer .  

From postering , leafleting and canvassing , you meet some great people along the way

There were some funny experiences too but its not always easy on the Front line . 

You need to develop a hard neck fast when your promoting a view that goes against the establishment . If being given the fingers and being shouted at aggressively just because your engaging your democratic rights bothers you than its probably not for you.  Most people understand the concept of democracy but there is a rising cohort of nasty people who hate the idea of anyone thinking differently to them . They are prepared to rip down posters and do anything to impose their totalitarian views on the people of Ireland . 

Below : My 3 Favourite Referendum Posters of the Campaign  

   

At the Doors we had some amazing conversations . I remember one woman telling us that when she was in hospital giving birth to her daughter , the doctors told her that she would die if they didn't abort her daughter , she told the doctors that was ok and to make sure her daughter would be born , in the end , they both nearly died but the doctors brought them both around and she said she would do it all over again. Give her life for her child that is . Then there was a woman who was six months pregnant and was voting yes , this I find disturbing , to feel and know what its like to have a child growing inside you and then to vote for other people to kill such a child for no reason at all , is hard to take in .  

Below : Canvass volunteers out and about in Dublin Mid West  

   

Oh yes and we probably ended a relationship . We called to a house where a man was standing outside . He told us not to knock on the door because the girlfriend was inside and they both had different views . He was voting No but she was voting yes , and it was a sore issue with them . We were talking to the man when all of a sudden his girlfriend opened the door and started to have a pop at us, she was listening behind the door all the time . The poor man told us to go but I'd say he got a right bollocking . 

Do you remember when men where men , well , I spoke with some men who said they dont think men should be allowed to vote or have a say . Clearly these men need help , do they not realise that men hurt too , it takes two to make a child . Abortion has led to suicides of both men and women . One of my canvassing partners told me she used to be pro choice up to a few years ago until her friend took her own life after an abortion . she couldn't live with it . Abortion hurts men and women . Its a fact . 

A very funny incident happened on James's Street in Dublin one day . We were erecting posters when a guy who was off his head on either drugs or drink and struggling to keep himself up stopped to rest on a car beside us . He was doubled over and apologetic for leaning on the car but he said he couldn't move any further . A few minutes later , a young repealer woman spotted us hanging our poster , she stopped on her bike beside us but directly in front of the resting man and started yelling at us calling us f*ing liars and telling us not to put up our f*in posters there etc. What happened next was quite funny . The man thought she was talking to him and told her in no uncertain terms to go and F*k off and asked her what the f*k was she talking about . She tried to explain to him but the more she did the more annoyed he got with her and an argument broke out between them . She then phoned the Gardai on us complaining that there was no name and address printed on the poster (there was) , apparently they told her we could put whatever we liked on our posters and in the end she went off in a huff , it hadn't worked out as planned .  

In a way , I feel sorry for many of these young women , to some extent it is not their fault , they are indoctrinated at university to genuinely believe that the world is out to get them and everything is the fault of MEN  .... stop policing my body , my body my choice .. etc etc , everything is about me me me . They then go home to their parents and force their beliefs on their parents , family and friends . And if you dont agree , well god help you.

Ireland is in real trouble politically .  One Day , one of our canvass leaders who herself was an ordinary member of Fianna Fail got a great idea to contact the Office of a local Fianna Fail TD in Dublin Mid West asking for help with the Canvass . This TD claimed to be pro life . She later told me that after numerous telephone calls to his office , she gave up because they clearly were not interested in lending a hand . 

There is no political alternative in Ireland , nobody willing to represent a sizable portion of the electorate who dont agree with many of the things happening in the country. 

This is why I believe , if we are to make real changes in the future , No voters need to continue their activism , stand in local and national elections and with urgency because as I write this far left political parties such as people before profit  , sinn fein etc have more and more young people preparing themselves to enter local elections . If this is not challenged now , if they are allowed to get away without being challenged , the future for Ireland is bleak . Its game over . And you can take that to the Bank .

well done to everyone involved in the No campaign , your courage and conviction is to be commended .
^
1 in every 3 people you see on the streets voted No , dont forget that . we can build on that. 36% of people didn't vote at all which goes to show how disillusioned much of the electorate are with the current state of government
^
we did our best and thats all anyone can do . its going to be a disaster for the health service . waiting lists are going to sky rocket , people are already waiting years for life saving operations and now they will have to wait even longer to prioritise people who want to kill their babies.

I dont feel comfortable with my taxes being used for this , I wish their was an opt out system.
^
I hope no clinics open in my town , i dont think i could bear the idea of babies being torn into pieces around the corner from my home .
