A bus is being driven around Ireland to help women have abortions

A group of women are driving a bus around Ireland to help distribute abortion pills.

Under the eighth amendment of Ireland’s constitution, abortion is only legal if a woman’s life is in immediate danger. And using pills to induce miscarriages early in pregnancies is also against the law, as it is in Northern Ireland. Some estimates say 12 women travel to the UK a day for abortions, while three Irish women are said to buy abortion pills online every day.

But campaigners from ROSA (Reproductive rights against Oppression, Sexism and Austerity), are travelling across Ireland to fight for a referendum to repeal the eighth amendment.
