Lucinda Creighton Was Booed At The RDS Today – Is That Really An Okay Thing To Do?

"All the things that Lucinda Creighton would rather do to women than let them look after their own bodies, and folk worry about some booing?"


It's been a pretty disappointing day for Lucinda Creighton.

Not only does she look extremely likely to lose her own seat in Dublin Bay South, but it also looks highly improbable that her party Renua will return any TDs to the 32nd Dáil.

And on top of all that, she subjected to sustained booing when she arrived at the RDS count centre this afternoon.

Given her ardent stance on women's reproductive rights – and perhaps more to the point, other women's reproductive rights – she's long found herself in conflict with those in favour of repealing the eighth amendment and better access to safe and legal abortion in Ireland.

But the hostile reception still split opinions on Twitter, even among non-supporters.

So what do you think?
