* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

The act legally gives a woman access to an abortion where there is a real and substantial risk to her life, including risk of suicide.

This suicide clause – part 9 of the bill – was one of the most contentious parts of the legislation, with a number of TDs and Senators tabling amendments that would have removed this section or substantially altered it.

However, these amendments were all defeated.

After what happened with that Indian woman there, it's the least they could do.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Not just the Indian woman either, there's a few others too :(

Naturally the pro-choice movement (of which I am a member) will be pushing for improvement :) It's a matter of waiting now :)

Congrats on the change in your country, Cág. How has this new law been accepted in Ireland, from what you can tell?

Well apparently the Irish are 'entirely pagan' now according to the RCC. :rolleye::

Elsewhere - the wider Pagan community in Britain is thinking: :stop: "that doesn't mean what you think it does..."

I think so, it's interesting because the pro-life people were actually going crazy during the process and doing some pretty horrible stuff. It was especially shocking because normally our country doesn't experience that level of fundamentalist religious backlash, we just don't have it here.
Most of it was coming from the U.S., from groups who send large amounts of money to fund campaigns which have frankly wrong information. They even flew in hundreds to participate in demonstrations here :confused:
They were caught out fairly quickly when the accents were the noticeable majority in the crowd XD
They've since disappeared largely but we're expecting attempts to challenge it in court so we'll just have to see how it plays out. :)

Oh we were thinking the same over here too XD
Seriously..... :rolleye::
