In separate articles in IrishTimes/Opinion, Independent TDs Maureen O’Sullivan and Mattie McGrath argue the case for and against same-sex marriage.
Maureen O’Sullivan writes that same-sex marriage is a human right. She argues that far from undermining the institution of marriage, as some have argued, in fact the introduction of same-sex marriage would affirm it.
Mattie McGrath writes that if the referendum passes, in future the State couldn’t take a constitutional or legislative stance in relation to a vision of the family which would prioritise the parental roles of mothers and fathers.
