This week, media watchdog the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) upheld complaints made against the Ray D’Arcy Show over an interview Mr. D’Arcy conducted with comedian Graham Linehan and his wife Helen. The BAI found the incident to have been in violation of industry standards against media bias.
The Life Institute has said that doctors supporting Amnesty’s latest push for abortion are expressing a political and not a medical opinion. Spokeswoman, Niamh Uí Bhriain also said that Amnesty had gathered signatures from medics across a total of 44 countries and that the average of less than 20 doctors signing per country was “less than impressive”.
Last week, the long-time abortion supporter and Irish Times columnist, Eamonn McCann, in obvious liaison with Amnesty and other abortion campaigners, tried to smack down parents whose babies died from life-limiting conditions such as anencephaly and Trisomy 13. McCann wrote a rather disjoined and paranoid piece about the HSE consultation process on bereavement standards, which accused parents who children did not seek abortion for their babies because of a life-limiting diagnosis of being ‘strident’, simply because these parents don’t want misleading and upsetting terms like ‘incompatible with life’ or ‘lethal anomaly’ used in relation to their children – rather, they want the conditions explained and the medical research in relation to those conditions presented.
