In fairness, this is excellent.

Peadar Tóibín's political party, Aontú, is (in my estimation) the most 'Catholic' party here in virtue of its political philosophy and witness. Admittedly it is very small.
A member of Sinn Féin at the time, Tóibín (County Westmeath) was suspended for defying Sinn Féin and voting to support the pro-life Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill 2013. In 2019 he formed a new party, Aontú.

Excellent points and criticisms. Notwithstanding this moment in time, I suggest he look too for the plank in the eye of his own political party insofar as abortion and other excoriable practices and philosophies.
