    UCD Student President Katie Ascough faces being Impeached for her Pro Life Stance

    Folks the campaign of vilification against anyone in Public Life who dares oppose the Abortion Agenda continues apace

    Second petition to impeach pro-life UCD Student President Katie Ascough accepted

    A second petition to impeach UCD Students' Union President Katie Ascough has been accepted.
    The petition calling for her impeachment was handed in on Monday evening after collecting 1200 signatures.
    UCD Returning Officer Stephen Devine accepted the petition and an impeachment referendum will now take place on October 25 and October 26.
    Ms Ascough announced last night that she will take annual leave until the referendum has been called.

    Second petition to impeach pro-life UCD Student President Katie Ascough accepted - Independent.ie

    What's with the Anti Life people that they hate to be challenged so much?

    We saw some real nasty attacks during the Gay Marriage Thing and more recently with death threats issued against a Hotel who were due to host a conference by Rape Victims

    No condemnation by any group, Party or Politician either

    The latest now is to undermine some one - the brave UCD Student President Katie Ascough

    - for holding true to her principles....

    - in advocating the protection of the Unborn

    Is Democracy Dead in this State?

    Because allowing the open intimidation and hounding from Office of those who who speak out against the Ultra Liberal Agenda

    - will surely Kill it....

    Missed out this bit:

    Just weeks into her presidential term Ms Ascough was criticised after she withdrew information over access to abortion services in a magazine circulated to new students.

    Ms Ascough said she took an “executive decision” to redact the information after receiving legal advice that the abortion information was illegal in Ireland, despite the fact the information was previously available in UCD.

    ...

    Ms Ascough's decision was widely criticised by the student body as the decision to remove the page, which required reprinting the annual guide, is estimated to have cost the union about €8,000.
    So, her principles cost the members 8000 quid. And they're not happy.

    UCD President takes "executive decision" to cull advertisement for guns from magazine after receiving legal advice that such an advertisement is currently illegal.



    FFS you Libtards. Why is it ALWAYS, side over principle?


    She didn't pull a debate, or even an ad for a debate, but an ILLEGAL ad. for illegal services Jesus. You may not agree with it being illegal, but it is.

    I'm far too tolerant to be a liberal myself!

    Yet more support for a proposition to raise the voting age to 21, maybe 25.

    Do you consider voting on her behaviour to be undemocratic, if that's what the membership want?

    We have no idea if it's illegal or not. It was in the student handbook for 20 years and nobody ever got prosecuted. So let's just get our facts straight shall we.

    In addition, on this topic in particular Katie Iona Ascough lied to the students because she told them during the election campaign that she would be neutral on abortion. She then ignorned that and went behind their backs and smart ass that she was she got the pages on abortion removed. She's not an honest person. The students don't like that and that's why so many of them were so quick to sign the first petition - more than the number of people who voted her in in the first place.
