Sinn Féin Really is Pro-Abortion

Edit: taking notes from Nancy Pelosi, Irish Pro-Death Party Member, Mary Lou McDonald addresses Ireland's Bishops with what seems to be even greater hauteur than the average CINO politician in the United States.

[Irish Central] Sinn Féin deputy leader Mary Lou McDonald, speaking in Cork on Friday, said the hierarchy of any religion is entitled to its views on the matter of abortion. “But I think people also need to understand, and the Catholic hierarchy need to understand, that the Dáil and the elected institutions of this State are there to serve all of the people,” she said, according to the Irish Examiner. “It would be wholly inappropriate for public policy to be bound or directed by any particular religious ethos or belief. You can’t have that in a republic.

Irish Protestants Criticize Sinn Fein for Not Being Catholic Enough

Is Ian Paisley More Catholic than Sinn Fein?
Edit: Sinn Fein even silences its Pro-Life members.  It's well that Irish Protestants should point out a clear hypocrisy, since Sinn Fein relies, as do many leftist organizations, on its Catholic identity for financial and political support.

It's high time these parasites were taken to task.

Republicanism has always been an opponent of the Church, temporary alignments and ceasefires notwithstanding. 

From Ballymore Times:
THE Times has received a statement from the Independent Loyal Orange Institution. 
A spokesperson said: “The members of the Independent Loyal Orange Institution are surprised and puzzled by the recent statement in the press by Local MLA Daithi McKay with reference to the creationist exhibit at the Causeway Interpretative Centre at Bushmills. 
“Surely he who professes to be a democrat and whose party claims to be democratic cannot deny the ILOI, another democratic organisation with strong Christian beliefs, the right to lobby for what they and for that matter the RC church believe to be the truth

Sinn Fein Silences Pro-Life Members

Edit: we've just learned from Sinn Fein member that increasingly, the political wing of the IRA, Sinn Fein, has shown a very radical, indeed, Revolutionary inclination.  Like many political organizations that throve beneath the Catholic umbrella throughout the tumults of the last 200 years, they have increasingly shriven themselves from the origins which justified their existence in the first place.

Sinn Fein will find it difficult indeed to exist without its Catholic identity, but that is true of other organizations which have done so as well, even to the point of silencing its pro-life members.

It may also be supposed that now Sinn Fein is revealing itself from its Revolutionary and Socialist, even Communist influences revealing what it was all along, a Revolutionary organization.

Reports have been coming from Ireland that Sinn Fein is silencing its pro-life membership. Of course, like Ted Kennedy, they are also serious dissenters on the Catholic teaching against abortion. We found some substantiation for this in the following report, here at the Devin McAlisky blog entitled, "Is Sinn Fein Sort of Revolutionary?"  (They've always been that)

Probably the best evidence that some very large majority of SF members are feminist is their position(s) on abortion (bear in mind, there would be a lot of SF members who are pro-life but nonetheless feminist).
1) In 1985, although it was apparently a very unrepresentative vote, SF did, for one year, adopt a pro-choice position.
2) Although Sinn Fein MLAs did vote for a Democratic Unionist Party motion, which opposed the extension of the Abortion Act to N. Ireland (abortion is almost completely illegal there). It’s not that simple. A member of the Women's Coalition proposed an amendment that radically changed the resolution so that it simply referred the issue to the Health-Care Committee for further research, discussion, and debate. SF members spoke (starts half-way through, you'll want to look at this to see who's who) and voted in favor of this, and when they spoke, they made it clear their party is not fully committed to the pro-life position.
3) In 2004 (possibly 2003, but I'm pretty sure 2004) SF Youth came within one vote of adopting a pro-choice position. 
4) SF's current abortion position is that they support abortion when the life or health of the mother (I think that might also apply to the fetus as well) is at risk, in cases of rape or incest (in the 2002 Abortion referendum in the South, SF also were okay with abortion when the woman is suicidal). They also feel very strongly about not criminalizing women who have abortions. 
5) They support “comprehensive sex education, full access to child-care and comprehensive support services, including financial support for single parents.”
