In and of itself, it abuses the women involved. It has to be...

Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Bill 2015: Second Stage (Resumed) (2 Nov 2016)

Ruth Coppinger: .... It is ludicrous that a country with the eighth amendment, for example, would now pose itself as being somehow progressive on women's rights, despite our history of the Catholic Church controlling people's lives, the Magdalen laundries, symphysiotomy etc. On the second point, the Government is doing nothing.

The persistence of that...
