    Default The Life Institute Harassing TDs

    There's lobbying and then there's harassment. A story in the Irish Times today tells that the The Life Institute are going to extraordinary lengths to contact Fine Gael TDs to promote their pro life views.

    56,000 phone calls made to Fine Gael TDs - The Irish Times - Thu, Nov 22, 2012

    Codes of conduct/laws for lobbyists are long overdue it seems.

    For the Ultra-Catholics this issue is their last stand.
    As far as they are concerned they are sheep among wolves and the forces of Satan are on the march.

    I suspect a Lesbian Pope will be their last stand. Until then .....

    Is there not a multitude of existing threads you could have put this into, and save us from yet another thread on the issue?

    This thread is about harassment and intimidation.

    It looks like TDs aren't the only ones being harassed: ‘Large number of complaints’ to Data Protection Commissioner over abortion message calls

    Don't see anything wrong with it TBH, seems the ICCL are at it themselves but don't have the same level of support, sour grapes maybe?

    Several posters on P.ie have mentioned receiving this particular call.
