Galway West TD Eamon O’Cuiv says it’s important that the views of all members of the Fianna Fail Parliamentary Party – and not just the party leader’s views – are expressed in the media in the run-up to the proposed abortion referendum.

Deputy O’Cuiv was one of eight members of the Fianna Fail Parliamentary Party who attended a meeting last night organised by Carlow-Kilkenny TD Bobby Aylward for those opposed to  repealing the 8th Amendment.

Last week, party leader Míchéal Martin expressed his support for repeal of the amendment and for women to be allowed abortions up to 12 weeks of pregnancy.

This is in line with the recommendations of the Oireachtas Committee, but does not reflect the views of many members of the parliamentary party, according to Deputy O’Cuiv.
