The questions Dana needs to answer

I HAVE wondered how long it would take for Dana Scallon to raise the spectre of abortion, and to accuse other candidates of being pro-choice.

Ms Scallon has a number of questions to answer. Firstly, will she sign into law any bills referred to her for signature, with which she has a moral disagreement, especially those which the Supreme Court has deemed to be constitutional following an Article 26 referral? Secondly, will she, if elected President, involve herself in debates around future referendums to change the Constitution on an anti or pro side?

Until Ms Scallon answers the above, we may only infer that she would undermine the Constitution to protect it and that she is equivocal on child abuse, with more regard for the unborn than the born.
