OpinionViewer is an on-line service which facilitates those who wish to contact selected relevant persons to make known their views about a specific issue of concern. OpinionViewer is designed to provide an efficient platform for individuals to make contact with key stakeholders regarding an issue of concern. It acts as a secretarial service (provides pre-designed emails) and an online post office (provides the mechanism to enable users to send an email to key stakeholder(s).
The user of the OpinionViewer service (by subscribing to the pre-designed email, selecting the stakeholder(s) and then sending an email) is the sender of the communication. Recipients should respond directly to the sender and not to OpinionViewer. Any abuse of the service should be brought to the attention of OpinionViewer. Anyone abusing the system will be blocked from using the service in future.
Negotiations between Fine Gael and Labour over the planned Abortion Bill are continuing amid signs that the FG side is giving in to Labour’s demands. Even if Fine Gael insisted on its preferred version of the Bill, it would be a totally unacceptable proposal (it would still include X Case suicide grounds), opening the doors to abortion on demand. But if Labour has its way, even the “safeguards” that were intended to ease the consciences of many FG backbenchers will be swept away. It is of the utmost urgency that Fine Gael TDs hear from their pro-life constituents at this time.
