Senator Katherine Zappone challenges legislators to base laws on humanity and not on politics.

Senator Katherine Zappone challenges legislators to base laws on humanity and not on politics.

In a robust reply to Misnister Joan Burton's address to the 4th TGEU council meeting in Dublin, Senator Zappone Katherine challenges legislators to base all legislation on humanity, rather than on political considerations. This, she proposes, should make all new legislation "future-proof" by extending human rights to all groups and individuals the states are obliged to protect. She disputes the Minister's contention that a heterocentric interpretation of marriage is enshrined in the Irish constitution and declares that failure of the Dáil to legislate for inclusive Gender Identity Recognition is the WRONG thing to do!
