Looks like the knives are out inside the ranks of SF's parliamentary Party as colleagues turn on West Meath TD Peadar Tóibín
The bold Eoin Ó Broin TD has let it be known that he does not agree with Tóibín's opposition to Abortion
Sinn Féin TD Eoin Ó Broin has attacked his party colleague Peadar Tóibín for his suggestion that the Oireachtas Committee examining the Eighth Amendment was biased.
Speaking on RTÉ's The Week in Politics programme, Mr Tóibín criticised the balance of both members and witnesses giving testimony and he said he was disappointed....
The abortion issue will be discussed at the party's Ard Fheis next weekend when it is expected members will agree to support allowing abortions in cases of fatal foetal abnormalities, rape, incest and where the mother's health is at risk.
It will not however allow a free vote on the issue in contrast with Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael.
In other words Abortion on Demand.
Why are they so afraid of their own members that they wont allow them a free vote?
I think a lot of rural voters will be very disillusioned with anyone who fails to conform being turned on like this.
