A reminder: exactly six months ago, on the 25th of May, we #repealedthe8th.

Since then, 1656 people have had to travel from Ireland for an abortion and 552 more have used pills ordered online. A graphic of the number 1656 and a plane surrounded by cloudsA graphic of a pill reading '552 in 6 months'
Abortion pills are being seized at a higher rate than ever before. January is just five weeks away and it's still not clear if and how people will be able to access abortion here at home by then. #repealedthe8th
As the legislation stands, the three-day waiting period and the opt-out clause for doctors will stop people from accessing abortion when they need it.

People will be forced to travel and to rely on pills bought online even though we #repealedthe8th so they wouldn't have to.
We didn't mean free, safe, legal, some time in the future, for a lucky few.

We meant free, safe, legal NOW, for everyone who needs it, when they need it. As early as possible, as late as necessary.
