Social conservatism[edit]

Describing Fine Gael as socially conservative, such as the info-box of this article does, is outdated by years. Fine Gael are now pro-choice and are campaigning for "gay marriage", which isn't exactly the definition of socially conservative. Tomh903 (talk) 20:51, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

I agree, this should be removed from the info-box. (Or at the very least added to Fianna Fáil's info-box for consistency, because as some in the talk page have previously indicated it could be argued that they are currently more socially conservative than Fine Gael) [1] [2] [3] Ranníocóir (talk) 19:34, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Numbers changed[edit]

One of their TDs, Sean Conlan, resigned from the party today. http://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/ireland/fine-gael-td-sean-conlan-resigns-from-party-707197.html I've updated their TD numbers in the data box (or whatever it is called) to reflect that.

Put abortion in separate heading[edit]

To avoid rows over which heading abortion should be under (pro-life and pro-choice sides in Ireland constantly row over something as basic as under what heading does it belong to, Health Justice or Social Affairs, I have put it under its own separate sub-heading. So no-one can accuse the article of POV by where the topic is covered.

I also added in additional information about FG's stance on the 1983 and 2002 amendments, and a link to its current stance on the 8th Amendment. Hopefully it is NPOV. (If something annoys both sides it usually means it is NPOV!) FearÉIREANN\(caint) 17:43, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
