A Matter for Ireland

The BBC have reported that the European Court of Human Rights have ruled that the Irish ban on abortions has breached the human rights of a woman. This will likely result in a change in Ireland's law to roll back their abortion laws, at least partially.

The question I ask is, what business is that of Europe's?

Ireland has a democratically elected Parliament which creates its laws. Therefore, their laws on abortion, no matter how distasteful to some people's sensibilities, are supported by a majority of people in that country. But now, because of the judgement of an unaccountable Court, they will have someone else's sensibilities forced upon them. And that is wrong.

You can take your United States of Europe, and cram it up your dark one.
