Aontú Rep Mary T. Sweeney spoke at the March For Life in Bundoran last week.


Mary T Sweeney said “It is going to take time to rebuild a culture of life in Ireland. There are many good pro-life people and endeavours are taking place that are making a difference but we need to continue to be vigilant”



Mary T Sweeney continued “We owe it to mothers and their unborn babies to make sure that abortion is never normalised in our society because it involves the ending of an innocent defenceless human life. “


Mary T Sweeney concluded “It is so important to maintain a public and political pro-life presence, but we need to also continue the work at a family and community level as well. Importantly in politics, we need to build momentum and get people elected who will unapologetically speak up for life.”

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
