Senators challenge Irish Council for Civil Liberties on funding and advocacy PLUS abortion supporters seek no term limits in abortion legislation The Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL) has been challenged by Senators on their funding sources and their advocacy role at the Joint Committee hearings on abortion.
The US billionaire, Chuck Feeney, has long been funnelling his spare millions into bringing a little of America back home for us all. Unfortunately it is often the bad bits he wants us to embrace. Just last week one of the outfits he shovels cash into, the Irish Council of Civil Liberties (ICCL), registered a complaint to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. Their cause for complaint was Ireland's 'failure' to legalise abortion. According to the Irish Examiner, the Committee of Ministers is responsible for ensuring the European's Court’s rulings are implemented.
The pro-abortion "Your Rights, Right Now" report which has been the subject of so much controversy was funded by a grant of a whopping €150,000 by a U.S billionaire, it has been revealed. Since it was launched on April 19th, the Irish Council of Civil Liberties (ICCL) report has come under fire and its endorsement process exposed and discredited. Investigations by the Life Institute and the Alive newspaper caused Trócaire, the National Council for the Blind, Crosscare, and nine other organisations to completely withdrawn their support – either because they never endorsed the report or they didn't know that a call for abortion was included in the report - while other organisations pulled back from Section 12 of the report.
