Bríd Smith calls out anti-abortion campaign for working with Trump supporters
Brid Smith, the People Before Profit TD has expressed concern at the intervention of well-funded, foreign, right-wing campaigners in the coming Irish referendum on the Eighth Amendment.
She said, “The Irish anti-choice campaign seems to be endowed with lots of money and they are using it to hire social media and PR experts associated with very right-wing forces.
“Their ‘Love Both’ initiative is being promoted by uCampaign, a conservative US company that helped with Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ campaign.
“uCampaign was also involved in an unsuccessful effort to defeat Marriage Equality in Australia.
“Bizarrely, uCampaign has also developed support for the National Rifle Association in the US.
“The very people who claim to be ‘pro-life’ appear to have little difficulty promoting weaponry in the US that has helped to increases its murder rate.”
