This issue has been rehearsed by the people. I was on the other side of the debate but I said that I would accept the views of the people and if any of the Deputies putting these amendments forward look at the exit polls, they will see that a tiny proportion of the people said they would not accept the results of the referendum. The Deputy should bear in mind that as far as the vast majority of people are concerned. This issue is now settled and the people have decided. If we are to change that decision, we are taking it out of the people's hands. I am not in favour of abortion for reasons of disability-----
