Message of Support on Abortion Rights .

03-04-2008 13:33

Message of support.
Abortion is criminalised in Ireland and therefore many Irish women use UK
services. This is not spoken of a lot because we are at a stage where 16 years
after the 'X' case , not one government has introduced abortion law.
Pro-life stand in the streets with images of eviscerated infants and argument is
reduced to: -Abortion is always wrong- which means we do not talk about the issues
of human rights, post-abortion continuity of care, medical abortion or
abortion by choice. It does not exist.
