Minister Rabbitt should know that there is a vast difference between lobbying and dictating! :rolleyes:
Labour Minister Pat Rabbitte has criticised Cardinal Sean Brady for comments he made over the weekend on abortion.
Cardinal Brady said the Catholic Church plans to lobby TDs and Ministers on the issue in the coming weeks.
Mr Rabbitte said it would be “a retrograde step” if the Catholic Church went back to dictating to elected representatives on how to address the issue of abortion.
