Together for Yes begins tour of Ireland ahead of abortion vote
Group embarks on 12-day trip to push for repeal of ‘unforgiving’ Eighth Amendment
Sun, May 6, 2018
The Together for Yes group has embarked on a 12-day tour of 22 locations across the State in an effort to convince more voters to back repeal of the Eighth Amendment in the forthcoming referendum on the issue.
Co-director Orla O’Connor told the campaign group’s first “Get Together For Yes” gathering, held in Athlone on Sunday, that the May 25th ballot was not a vote on abortion as “we already have abortion in Ireland”, but a vote “to decide if we will regulate it, make it safe, and care for the women of Ireland”.
