Brid makes the point that survivors of of church-run mother and baby homes have yet to be compensated for the horrors they experienced and the blight on their lives, and that no criminal prosecution has begun  of any of those responsible. She further agues that the most fitting tribute to the memory of the women and babies who suffered at the hands of the church, would the separation of Church and State forthwith.
