Two letters by Richard Mc Sweeney: 30th April 2018 & 8th May 2018

With reference to the upcoming repeal here on the Isle of Ireland of the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution Act, 1983 which acknowledges: the right to life of the unborn with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother.

#1 Letter: Where are you the philosophers of Ireland?

On Monday, 30th April 2018 I submitted it to the Sunday Independent – a nationwide newspaper here in Ireland for publication but the editor rejected it.

“Dear Editor,
Where are you the philosophers of Ireland, be you of the artificial kind: cultured in universities at home or abroad or you of the natural kind: cultured here in the fields and along the valleys? Why aren’t you up front and center boldly addressing the moral conscience . . .”

#2 Letter: Liam Neeson: “There’s nothing wrong in not knowing”

On Tuesday, 8th May 2018 I submitted it to the Sunday Independent – a nationwide newspaper here in Ireland for publication but the editor rejected it.

“Dear Editor,
. . .
You are to be commended for highlighting for us all, both men and women, just how pitifully deprived we are of true moral guidance when we have to depend on an actor to tell us how to interpret this crucial moment in our history.”
