7-8pm: Why Women Travel – Abortion Rights in Ireland
Ireland, home of Guinness, folk music, beautiful scenery, James Joyce and a ban on abortion even in 2012.
…While in the UK, a short distance across the sea , it has been legal to get an abortion since 1967. In Ireland, both North and South, women are forced to travel to the UK to private clinics in order to get an abortion. This sad, stressful and lonely journey costs between £400 and £1000 for the procedure as well as hundreds for tickets and hotel fees. With the collapse of the Celtic Tiger and Ireland being the scene of much poverty, it has become even tougher for working class women to raise the funds to travel to the UK.
Women in Ireland need your support in the struggle to force the Irish government to legislate on abortion. Come to a meeting at OK Cafe. We are all workers; we must act in solidarity with women in Ireland.
