HAH! Irish Leader Humiliates Obama in Public

The leader of Ireand, Enda Kenny, met with President Obama this past Tuesday. After the meeting he found an opportunity to really share how strongly Ireland feels about abortions, so he did THIS!

From TheBlaze:

When a reporter asked if he supported expanding abortion rights, a staffer quickly tried to preempt by saying, “Next question.”

However, Kenny responded, “We defer to the Eighth Amendment.”
The Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution adopted in 1983 reads in part, “The state acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.”

There has been a push in Ireland to repeal the Eighth Amendment, but supporters of the amendment won recent elections.

Last week, Kenny resigned as prime minister but maintained his role as acting head of government until later this month. The resignation came after the Irish Parliament failed to elect a prime minister, or Taoiseach.

Wouldn’t it be something if we at the helm of our country next year, this time, a person who actually finds the blessing of ‘life’ something that should be protected? Here’s hoping!
