One month ago we stood and waited anxiously for the results of the referendum.
We rejoiced together, the weight lifting, this freedom and feeling of finally being heard - of finally gaining something for ourselves :: our autonomy.
We celebrated, a wash of great relief in knowing that those of us that have had to travel will be the last ones.. that our daughters can get help here at home. That we will shift the stigma and silence around needing abortion care.
Since REPEAL 360+ women have accessed abortions in Ireland illegally, or have been forced to travel to the UK or further.
Since REPEAL at least 9 women and girls travel every day to the UK for safe abortions.
Since REPEAL at least 3 women and girls access illegal abortion pills online every day.
Since REPEAL politicians have come out with suggestions such as having only 50-60 GPs to offer the service of *prescribing a pill* to induce an abortion under 12 weeks.
Irish women are rising to meet our sisters in the North with Rally For Choice Ireland at Rally for Choice! Counter the Lies on July 7th at City Hall, Belfast
We have won nothing until we ensure the safety, autonomy, dignity, and respect of all of us.
