From Fine Gael
Fine Gael TD for Laois/Offaly, Marcella Corcoran Kennedy, has called on Caroline Simons of the Pro Life Campaign, to clarify her involvement with the Catholic television network, EWTN, which recently broadcast the “Life Crisis in Ireland” programme on its website.
“During the Health Committee hearing this week, I asked Caroline Simons from the Pro Life Campaign to clarify her involvement with the EWTN ‘Life Crisis in Ireland’ broadcast, in which the Government is described as being ‘agents of the culture of death who are attempting to have abortion legalised in Ireland’. Contributors to this series are acknowledged on the EWTN website. The acknowledgements include a ‘Caroline Simons’.
“I found this broadcast quite disturbing in the language used and I asked Caroline Simons during the Health Committee hearing this week if she had indeed contributed to this video as mentioned on the website. In response, Simons said that she ‘didn’t know anything about it.’
“Her response contradicts what is stated on the website, so I am today calling on Caroline Simons to clarify whether she is indeed involved in this broadcast or not.”
Fair play though, in fairness.
