Repeal the 8th
Campaigners in Ireland and across UK unite in #RepealThe8th pro-choice protests
Irish women strike to overturn ban on abortion rights
THOUSANDS OF PROTESTORS are gathering today across Ireland and the nations of the UK in solidarity with the campaign to repeal the 8th amendment of the Irish constitution.
The pro-choice movement wants Ireland to join other countries in guaranteeing abortion rights as part of the national healthcare system. Currently the most recent abortion legislation in Ireland includes punishment of up to 14 years imprisonment for those who carry out ‘unlawful abortions’.
