* So our Holy Sisters will not contribute to the Magdalene Compensation Fund and apparently our Government or others cannot compel them to do so. Surprise, surprise – did any of us truly believe that they would? Once there was a get-out clause it was a sure bet that they would avail of it, and avail of it they did.
Are we surprised? If so, bigger the fools we are.
No compensation of any kind will right the wrong that was done in those laundries. The woman and children that were abused in every such way will carry that wrong to their graves. Where do moral obligations come into play here?
