The Seanad has heard calls for RTÉ to be "dismantled" after claims that it pushes a pro-abortion agenda.

The comments come from Senator Jim Walsh, following a finding from the broadcasting regulator against one of its radio shows.

It has upheld complaints against the 'Ray D'Arcy Show' over an interview with Colm O'Gorman of Amnesty Ireland.

Jim Walsh says it is a sign that RTÉ is in favour of the killing of unborn babies - and he wants a boycott, or a total dismantling.

He preceded these comments by criticising Islamic State for supporting the "abortion holocaust", and the likes of the United Nations and Amnesty for equally supporting abortion.
