Abortion Rights Campaign Launches ‘Abortion Rights Roadshow’
17th June 2017

The Roadshow will travel the country over the summer months informing the public on why free, safe, and legal abortion access must be introduced both North and South.

Speaking in advance of the first Roadshow event in Galway this evening Abortion Rights Campaign (ARC) spokesperson Caoimhe Doyle said: “With a referendum getting ever closer, now is the time to get our pro-choice message to everyone around the country. We will run street stalls in a different part of the country every weekend, equipped with informative leaflets, posters, and volunteers who will be able to answer questions about abortion rights, the 8th amendment, and our vision for the future in Ireland.”

Northern Ireland: Alliance for Choice video on police crackdown on abortion pills

Alliance for Choice, March 12, 2017

ALL political parties in Northern Ireland expressed will to decriminalise women seeking abortion in the recent election period and yet the PSNI and PPS continue to pursue and prosecute people seeking abortion or people helping others to seek abortion. This has been reinforced by raids by the PSNI which have taken place over the past week, which this latest video addresses.

If you are outraged by this situation, share far and wide and contact your newly elected MLAs and your constituency MP to demand support for the vote on the Westminster bill on Monday 13th March to #trustwomen.
