Granard Co. Longford thirty years ago tomorrow

The 1983 anti-abortion Ammendment to the Irish Constitution had nothing to do with Ann Lovett's death, thirty years ago today, while giving birth alone, at the age of fifteen, in this grotto in Granard, County Longford in the same way that Governor George Wallace of Alabama and Governor Ross Barnett of Mississipi and Governor Lester Maddox of Georgia had nothing to do with lynchings. Funnily enough, they were against abortion too.
