She is asking that emotive materials not be used in an advertising campaign on a sensitive issue. Were the likes of Choice Ireland to run a campaign with pictures of mothers and babies saying "I wish I didn't have him/her" it would be justifiably subject to the same kinds of criticisms. There is no hypocrisy regarding freedom of speech there.
The media pick up on stories that they consider newsworthy and will sell papers/increase ratings, there is no 'publicity agenda' there.

Are people obligated to agree with their parties on every issue?It is Labour policy is it not?
To be honest even if she did agree with it, the Seanad remains part of the countries legislature until a referendum is passed and so one might still see a need to participate in it until a Unicimerial system is introduced
Which do you think would be easier to abolish - a Seanad with a 50/50 split between abolitionists and anti-abolitionists, or one comprised solely of anti-abolitionists?
What the hell do you mean "emotive"?
This is double speak.
The posters convey the reality that this is a human life at stake.
She and other pro choice people may say this is "emotive"
What they really mean - hypcrites that they are - is that the don't want the truth to be exposed. That abortion is taking a human life.
These are facts which the public have a right to consider.
The use of Stalinist terminology and double speak words "foetus" "emotive" shows a cold calculating hypocrisy at work here.
