Reasons To Repeal

What are your Reasons to Repeal the 8th Amendment?

Atheist Ireland have asked our members and supporters their Reasons to Repeal the 8th Amendment. We will publish these over the coming weeks.

I am a 70 year old retired teacher and support Repeal the 8th 100%.
My reasons being:
As a young woman I witnessed many young girls either travelling to UK or submitting to back street abortions here in Ireland.  In both cases often alone and terrified.  Abortion is a fact of life.  It’s happening.  Let’s make it legal and safe and a basic right up to the 12 week limit for the women of Ireland in the 21st century.  Lets STOP all the hypocrisy.
