Irish referendum and the Church basics

Catholic Ireland is shaking up the Church again! It did so in 2015 when it became the first country to legalise gay marriage by popular vote. It has done it again with another referendum, this time on abortion on 25 May. The issue at hand was the repealing of the Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution, which protects the unborn with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother.
