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.”
