To mark Pride Week, Solidarity–People Before Profit Paul Murphy joined representatives of LGBTQ groups in Ireland to appeal to the Toaiseach not to hold up the Sex Education Bill which would remove religious ethos from the RSE curriculum.
The legislation, which is at the committee stage, is a private member’s Bill – providing for education about consent, contraception, abortion, sexuality and gender issues – and will perish without mainstream political support.
