President’s wife should stay silent on abortion

It is outrageous that the wife of the President of Ireland should seek to openly support one side of the extremely sensitive issue of the Life Equality (Eighth) Amendment of our Constitution, and thereby seek to influence the national debate.

President’s wife should stay silent on abortion

What her intervention clearly indicates is that she cherishes a select group of the people of Ireland, but wishes to deprive Life Equality Amendment protection to that group of pre-born children who are unfortunate enough to be afflicted with a life-limiting illness/disability and, who, above all other vulnerable groups, are deserving of our love and protection and not of being abused by abortion.
