Letters to the Editor

Since the recent revelations about the mother and baby home in Tuam, Co Galway, we have heard many voices seeking to remind us that the religious did not act alone in their persecution of unmarried mothers and their children, but rather conspired with the State and the families of these women.

This reader suspects that these are the same voices that were quick to inform us that most sexual abuse happens in the home.

Both assertions are true, and both succeed in missing the point entirely.
