It’s official: Ireland’s abortion ban repealed by popular vote

For: 1,429,981 (66.4%)

Against: 723,632 (33.6%)

Ireland votes ‘YES’.

Careful, logical, critical contributions carried the day, outweighing the fake news, grim posters, emotional manipulation, attempts at foreign influence, church persuasion, alt-right hectoring, and brain-dead dogmatic pseudo-morality. We focused on the facts and the evidence. We relied on experience and expertise.

We decided that each person could decide for themselves.

We acknowledged each other’s humanity.

Not before time, it must be said.
