Myth of Ireland imprisoning unmarried mothers exposed

The Imprisoned Mothers Myth – Does Truth Matter?

Sinn Féin has suddenly dropped its false claims of deliberate starvation of children and women at Ireland’s Mother and Baby Homes but insist that women were imprisoned at such institutions.

Does that mean that homosexuality is the cause of abuse? Such a claim would be as daft as the extreme feminist assertion…

Professor Chris Fitzpatrick’s article in the Irish Times published 13th October 2020 is chiefly remarkable, not so much for its all too common unbalanced interpretation historical events, but for his illusory superiority.
