What does and does not mat­ter

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - - Letters -

Sir — I wit­nessed some of last week­end’s “pro-choice” pa­rade in Dublin. One marcher’s plac­ard that stood out for its di­rect mes­sage and suc­cinct slo­gan sim­ply de­clared: “I mat­ter.” The same slo­gan, how­ever, seems rather rel­e­vant as well in the case of pre-born per­sons whose self-ev­i­dent hu­man­ity is of­ten over­looked by many.

Last, the marcher’s mes­sage above may find an echo for some in Mrs Thatcher’s en­dorse­ment of in­di­vid­u­al­ism: “There is no such thing as so­ci­ety.” Sean Bearn­ab­hail,
