Starting To Sink In?

I wonder if the ordinary Joe and Josephine Soap on the street in Ireland actually realises that abortions are about to begin in Ireland.  That our government is determined, come hell or high water, to have abortion legislation in place before the summer recess so "terminations" can begin as quickly as possible.  Part of this process is not only the rushing of legislation through the houses, crushing individual consciences and politically excommunicating those who choose conscience over party will, but also the demonization of the pro-life movement.
Well, here's a little bit of reality - the government has listed the hospitals in which abortions WILL be carried out after the passing of legislation.  Here they are (and note there are Catholic hospitals on the list - remember this legislation makes it illegal for any institution, regardless of ethos, to refuse to carry out abortions):
The Adelaide and Meath Hospital, Dublin, incorporating the National Children's Hospital (irony of ironies!)
Beaumont Hospital, Dublin
The Coombe Hospital, Dublin
Cavan General Hospital, Cavan
