Count me out of abortion referendum, says Lucinda
FORMER minister Lucinda Creighton has ruled out the prospect of her having any involvement in the upcoming abortion referendum campaign.
Speaking to reporters at the MacGill Summer School in Glenties, Co. Donegal, Ms Creighton said she is no longer involved in domestic politics and is instead concentrating on building her new business.
And she categorically ruled out the prospect of playing a campaigning role in next year’s referendum on whether to repeal the Eighth Amendment. She said: ‘I
have no plans to be involved in any referendum in Ireland in the near future. I am very busy with business and with my work commitments and I am travelling every week.’
Ms Creighton lost the Fine Gael whip in July 2013 after she voted against the government on the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill. She then formed her own party, Renua Ireland, but lost her Dáil seat in the last election. Not getting involved: Lucinda Creighton
