Leftists Defeated in Referendum to ‘Modernize’ Irish Constitution, Undermine Family Values

“It does look like a no vote in both the family and care referendums. The first thing to say is that we respect that. It’s the voice of the people and in our constitution, it’s the people who are sovereign.

Unlike other countries, the Irish constitution can only ever be modified through a natiowide referendum with majority support of the Irish people.

Senator Michael McDowell, who campaigned vociferously for a no vote, said the results suggested a “no-no substantial margin right across the country.”

“It seems like the government misjudged the mood of the electorate and put before them proposals which they didn’t explain, proposals which could have serious consequences,” he explained.

Progressives have previously reigned victorious in Irish referendums, with the country voting in favor of same-sex marriage and the legalization of abortion in 2015 and 2018 respectively.
