This man deserves a standing ovation! Nothing like sticking it to Obama at his own event.
After meeting with President Barack Obama at the White House Tuesday, Irish leader Enda Kenny voiced his support for Ireland’s constitutional abortion restrictions during a press conference outside the White House.
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.”
