Man questioned by Gardai over Anti Abortion Images

newsreport
politics
Gardai in Castlefinn station Donegal have questioned a man over images displayed at an Anti Abortion protest outside Lifford Hospital in Co Donegal . 

The Image (pictured below) featured an image of a Monkey being experimented on under the caption - "if this is wrong" followed by a picture of a baby being pulled apart under the caption - "can this be right  ?" 

Anti Abortion Protest Lifford Hospital Donegal
   


Speaking in a video posted to social media , the accused Mr Niall McConnell said .. "We stand outside Lifford Hospital every Saturday protesting abortion . The Gardai called to my door and said someone complained and they cautioned me . A few days ago they sent me a letter threatening more action" . 

On 11 March , Gardai wrote to Mr McConnell inviting him to attend Castlefinn Garda Station for interview with regards to "posters containing obscene images" . 

 Further to our conversation at your Home on the 20th February 2021 in relation to posters containing obscene images displayed by yourself in Lifford on that and other dates , I am inviting you to attend at Castlefin Garda Station to make a statement in relation to the allegation

- Letter from Castlefinn Garda Station to Mr McConnell , 11 March
  

Responding to the letter on Social Media , Mr McConnell who is the leader of a new political party named Siol na hEireann insisted he has done nothing wrong :
 
The government are telling us that these are clumps of cells , their not babies , so whats their problem with us showing these images if their not murdered children ? when people see graphic pictures of babies being butchered and murdered it makes them think and realise this is actually a human being , its not a clump of cells and I've been lied to . They are trying to make an example out of us , they are trying to intimidate us and coax me to go for an interview to get some detective to get me to say the wrong things and charge me because they know they are on shakey grounds . We've done nothing wrong , they cant actually state what we've done wrong -

- Mr McConnell responding on social media , saturday 13th march

in reality , we're all just a clump of cells , just a bigger clump now then in our mammy's womb .

I'm sure they just wanted to check his thinking , make sure it conforms to the establishment

My advice would be ignore the letter , if they think they have case let them come and arrest you and bring you before the courts .

a discussion on all of these issues is long overdue . a mature conversation needs to happen . we used to have good debates in Ireland up to about 20 years ago , until debating an issue became a crime almost , a thought crime anyway.
