The 8th amendment prevents nothing but the safety and dignity of our fellow citizens. I hope you’ll join me in granting those in a crisis pregnancy compassionate access to healthcare in Ireland on Friday the 25th of May by voting YES. #TogetherForYes https://t.co/C29soHMhhv

“Before we had our two beautiful children – I had three miscarriages that truly nearly broke me. I couldn’t leave our apartment for three months after the last one and I couldn’t bear to speak about it with my friends. When I was pregnant with Charlie – we were afraid to celebrate. Repealing the 8th amendment isn’t about the value you place on life inside the womb. It’s not. It’s about a woman’s right to choose. Abortion is not a decision that any woman wants to make. It’s just not. I don’t need a list of why women might want or need an abortion – it’s not my place to judge. It’s no one’s. I stand #together4yes and I support every woman’s right to control her own body. We will #Repealthe8th. Now make sure you’re registered to vote!”
“Don’t forget to vote this Friday to have your say.”
Liam Cunningham, Aoibhin McGinnity, Peter Coonan, Victoria Smurfitt, Tom Vaughan Lawlor, Cillian Murphy, Robert Sheehan, Pauline McGlynn, Deirdre O’Kane, Keith Duffy and many more took part in this Together for Yes video.
