“In light of their recent behaviour regarding the abortion debate and due to their long-running policy on pro-life matters I would not entertain the use of church property for any such meeting”. Fr. Eugene O’Neill, parish priest of St. Patrick’s in Coalisland, Co. Tyrone, on the banning of Sinn Fein from church property.
• Tell them you are totally opposed to Sinn Féin’s abortion policy, and their campaign to legalise abortion is not done in your name as an Irish man or woman
• Tell them you want ALL the children of the nation cherished equally – as stated in the 1916 Easter Proclamation
• Tell them you want Sinn Féin to stop deceiving their constituents by claiming the Party “isn’t in favour of abortion” while supporting abortion-on-demand
• Tell them you will vote in future elections only for candidates who uphold the right to life of unborn children
• Tell them you want both mothers and babies protected from abortion by being given life-affirming options in crisis pregnancies
A young mother has lodged a complaint with the Police Service of Northern Ireland after she was assaulted by a Sinn Fein official at an Easter Rising commemoration in Co Tyrone.
“Catherine Sewell is claiming that a party official pushed her and ordered her to leave the village of Carrickmore as she handed out anti-abortion leaflets on Easter Sunday.
She has reported the alleged incident to the PSNI who are investigating it.
Ms Sewell, a 33-year-old mother of three, said: ‘I give out these leaflets wherever I know there will be a big gathering – at football games, Mass, St Patrick’s Day festivities,’ she said.
‘Occasionally, someone might be a bit argumentative and that’s fine. But no one has ever assaulted me.’
She is a member of the St Joseph’s pro-life group in Dungannon.

She added: ‘When these people are standing before the gates of hell the party whip won’t be of much use to them then.’ ”
