Parents of children with Down Syndrome who support repeal of the 8th amendment talk about the realities of their lives and their feelings about the exploitation of their children by those who oppose abortion in all circumstances. We also explore the facts and figures behind incidences of Down Syndrome in Ireland, Iceland and the UK.
It’s not a full repeal that would create results of no return, as anti-repeal campaigners keep trying to infer – it is by keeping abortion regulation, liberal or not, in the Constitution that it becomes time-consuming and cumbersome to deal with.
