Thousands March for Abortion Rights in Ireland

About 10,000 people marched through Dublin and observed a minute's silence Saturday in memory of the Indian dentist who died of blood poisoning in an Irish hospital after being denied an abortion.

Marchers, many of them mothers and daughters walking side by side, chanted "Never again!" and held pictures of Savita Halappanavar as they paraded across the city to stage a nighttime candlelit vigil outside the office of Prime Minister Enda Kenny.

    It all comes down to basic property rights. I honestly cannot come up with a valid argument against full abortion rights.

    I want every libertarian to have as many abortions as possible to prevent them from breeding.
