The UN Declaration of Human RIghts at 70 – from shepherd to wolf?

The Origins of Rights Documents asserting individual rights, such the Magna Carta (1215), the English Bill of Rights (1689), the French Declaration on the Rights of Man and Citizen (1789), and the US Constitution and Bill of Rights (1791) are the written precursors to many of today’s human rights documents. Yet these documents, when originally […]

Will the Government continue to show compassion?

Compassion is the new buzzword. With it you can sell anything to a ‘compassionate’ public, even death. There was a time in Ireland when we prided ourselves on supporting the little person against the might of the bully. We always favoured the underdog, whether in sport or to the less well off on the streets […]

Our hearts are broken. But we will fight on, because no referendum can ever make abortion right.

Our hearts are broken. But we will fight on, because no referendum can ever make abortion right. I know that your heart, like mine, feels broken. We need time to grieve and to recover.

Ailbhe Smyth and the patriarchy against pro-life feminism

Ailbhe Smyth, member of the pro-abortion Together for a Yes 8 “Coalition”, was once my lecturer in UCD and head of then-called WERRC (Women’s Educational Research and Resource Centre Department) while I was studying for my MA in Women’s Studies. She had plenty to say about patriarchal oppression and its treatment of women (but wasn’t […]

And they say it is likely to get worse. Four days later it was reported that 714 sick people were on trolleys awaiting […]

‘Where have all the good men gone?’

Our current environment is taking aim at men who engage in and then do not take responsibility for sexually inappropriate behaviour.  While people may disagree on what is and isn’t ‘sexually appropriate’ behaviour I believe that attempts to address this issue are something people that are pro-life and pro-abortion can agree on.
