Abortion Referendum Fails in Portugal…

…But not for the reason you might think.

Of the voters who turned out to vote on the ballot initiative to loosen Portugal’s exceedingly restrictive abortion law, the majority voted to liberalize abortion rights.
Unfortunately, there was not enough voter turnout (less than 50%) to make the win count.

I’m still out of town but got a few minutes of internet. I’ll be back in full swing Tuesday morning. Hope you all had a great weekend.
