Twenty Years After X: Where Are Our Rights?

On February 21st, 1992, the High Court issued a permanent injunction which barred a 14-year-old girl, known only as X, from leaving the country to terminate her pregnancy, the result of rape. Two weeks later the Supreme Court ruled that when a pregnant woman’s life is in danger, including from suicide, she has the right to an abortion here in Ireland.
Yet in 2012 after all the expert committees, after two referendums in which the people vindicated a woman’s right to life-saving abortion, after several court rulings doing the same and an acknowledgment from Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore that such legislation is necessary – all we’ve got is another expert committee.
The delay is inexcusable and unacceptable. Legislation is long overdue. The courts have ruled, the people have spoken – it's time for the Government to act.
The Action on X Alliance had been formed by concerned groups and individuals to campaign on the immediate passing of this ruling into law as directed by the Supreme Court and also one year after the C case judgment in the European Court of Human Rights.

Very interesting article. I would love to read the book “Start with Why”, by Simon Sinek. I think he has taken a great topic to deal with. Teaching leaders to inspire others is a good idea to bring up a civilized society. Thanks for sharing. Keep posting.
