Poll: Do we need yet another abortion referendum?

referendum-commission-cover A group of TD’s and Senators are aiming to invoke article 27 of the constitution to petition the President to recommend the Protection of Life during Pregnancy Bill 2013 be put to the people in a referendum.  According to sources close to the campaign being organised by a coalition of representatives, they claim, there is strong support for the measure across the political spectrum.  However, political parties and Government Ministers have said there is no appetite for a referendum on this issue among the public or public representatives.  Should this issue be yet again put to the people in a constitutional referendum or should the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill 2013 be dealt with solely by legislation?
