The senator will lead the debate that hopes to raise awareness for victims of Symphysiotomy and Survivors of Symphysiotomy will also be in attendance
Senator Mary Moran today welcomed the opportunity to lead the debate on Symphysiotomy for the Labour group of Senators in their private members’ time in the Seanad tomorrow Wednesday 16 May from 15.30 – 17.00.
“I have been calling for this debate for some time and welcome the opportunity we have tomorrow to continue to raise awareness for the victims of Symphysiotomy. I am pleased that Survivors of Symphysiotomy led by Marie O Connor will also be in attendance. The group will give an all party briefing to Oireachtas members on Tuesday evening.
The debate will build on and develop the issues which were raised in the Dáil debate on Symphysiotomy earlier this year. The debate will include a discussion on the best way to ensure that the survivors will be granted access to justice. Many of the survivors have been left permanently disabled, incontinent and in constant pain.”
