Cllr Sarah O’Reilly spoke at the March For Life in Bundoran last week.

Cllr Sarah O’Reilly said “Ireland now has a spiralling abortion rate, all the while women are being kept in the dark about positive alternatives to abortion. Doctors and nurses and other healthcare workers are not even afforded proper freedom of conscience, to allow them to fully opt-out of facilitating abortions.”

Cllr O’Reilly continued “As more and more people come to know the truth of what is happening under the new abortion regime, the pro-life movement will become bigger and stronger than ever. That’s going to take time to achieve but I have a feeling it will happen much sooner than some of our opponents think.”

Cllr O’Reilly continued “The message we are sending today is simple. We will not be silenced or driven from the public square! We are going to insist on having proper representation at the decision-making table.”

Cllr O’Reilly concluded “We will keep fighting for a brighter day, where everyone, born and unborn, is welcomed in life and protected in law.”

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.
