Majority Of Dubliners In Favour Of Repealing The 8th”

26 de enero de 2018, 17:16Dublin, Jan 26 (Prensa Latina) More than half of the Irish people were in favor of the right to abortion until twelve weeks of pregnancy, said a survey published today.

It found that 29 per cent would vote against in a referendum, while 15 per cent said they did not know or had no opinion.

The referendum is expected to take place early this summer. Most respondents - 56 percent - supported changing the constitution to allow the government to introduce abortion legislation.

The Irish Times in an editorial about the poll said that while there had been a striking move towards liberalisation of abortion in the past year, the referendum result was far from a foregone conclusion.

Amongst all voters, support for repeal and legalisation up to 12 weeks is strongest in Dublin at 64 per cent, among women at 58 per cent, among urban voters at 60 per cent and among younger voters. While 74 percent of voters under the age of 25 were in favour of the change, only 36 percent of voters over 65 supported it.

Almost two-thirds of respondents (64 percent) agreed with the statement: "The law in Ireland needs to change to recognize a woman's right to choose to have an abortion if they wish". The survey also indicated that one in five people is more willing to accept the right to abortion compared to previous year, maybe because of the influence of the media, according to the survey.

Nonetheless, they said it was a "reasonable compromise".

Thirty percent of respondents said they felt abortion was wrong and should not be made more widely available. Just 3% said they were less open to wider availability of abortion.
