Diarmuid O’Flynn (Ind) "I believe in democracy, in the will of the people and their right to express that will. If there is a strong enough move to support it (an online petition that gains 50,000 signatures for example, a nod to Article 48 of the original Constitution), I would support a motion for another Referendum on that Amendment. I want to make clear, however; while I believe that abortion should be allowed in specified limited circumstances (to save the life of the mother one example), I do NOT believe in UK-style or US-style abortion legislation and would both campaign and vote against that. That was my position when the original Amendment was introduced, that is my position now. If and when that occasion arises, I will outline in detail the reasons for my beliefs"
