Her full statement is a joke. As a trained solicitor, she has completely failed to deal with the substantive issue of the Supreme Court Judgement and has gone off on a total tangent.
Her full statement does not deal with the decision of the Irish people in recent referenda on the issue. However, she chose to use the occasion to give us all a lecture on morals.
She has completely forgotten that her first role is that of a public representative. In this case, she should be putting forward constructive proposals in terms of legislating for the issues contained within the Court Judgement, one that been plagued by government inaction for 20 years.
As a consequence, young women in crisis continue to travel without this state providing a legal solution.
Never forget that there are women who continue to suffer on, as a result of the inaction of our political system. Friday night's Late Late Show was amble evidence of such suffering.
Whether this appalling statement by our local TD is by accident or design, I haven't decided yet. Was it a crass attempt at publicity or the ramblings of an incoherent foolish young woman?
