Global March For Choice
30 September 2017Free
Repeal the 8th is the fight in Ireland to get free, safe and legal access to abortion. Ireland has one of the strictest abortion laws in the world and 10-12 women leave Ireland every day to procure an abortion.
Abortion is illegal in almost ALL cases including rape, incest and fatal foetal abnormalities. We cannot live in a society where you lose your rights and bodily autonomy the second you become pregnant. These archaic laws need to be REPEALED!
On September 30th, we will once again be having a global march for choice, where we will stand in solidarity with the 6th annual march for choice in Dublin organised by the Abortion Rights Campaign to demand a referendum to repeal and not replace the 8th amendment. Last year over 30 cities took part in the event.
Events have already been set up in some cities with more to follow. All event links will be shared on this page. To set up an event in your area, PM us and we can help you get started. Big or small event, your voice counts! It’s time to Act 4 Repeal.
