    Who will knit a blanket as a memorial to the victims of our repealed 8th amendment??

    Incredible that so many fail to see the incongruity of our national outcry against the fate of the Tuam babies and our equally enthusiastic demand that a similar fate should befall their modern counterparts! Oh the blindness of Man and Woman!!

      Post a image of your results to BS when you’re done.

      Bless you.
