Galway East TD says ‘Please vote No on May 25th’

East Galway TD Ciaran Cannon has urged people to vote ‘No’ in the referendum to repeal the Eighth Amendment on 25 May.

In a series of tweets over the weekend, the Fine Gael TD cited text from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and retweeted a tweet from John McGuirk which stated: “In Britain, one in every five pregnancies end in abortion.”

This statistic has been challenged as it fails to take miscarriages into consideration.

The Minister for the Diaspora & International Development also urged people to ‘be kind to one another’ during the referendum campaign, which many believe will be the most divisive in the history of the state.
