Irish pro-choice activists risk jail in abortion fight

GUERRILLA ACTIVISTS:Campaigners are targeting cafes, night clubs, changing rooms and public toilets with banned information on access to abortion clinics

“The leaflet is a one-stop shop that tells women which local organizations can provide unbiased information about all their options, contact details for clinics in England and information on where to turn to for financial help or access to early medical abortion pills,” Clarke said. “This information needs to be put into the hands of women and I hope the leaflets find their way into every women’s toilet, changing room and pub in Ireland.”

Meanwhile, a group of women who had to travel for terminations in Britain because their babies would have died shortly after birth due to fatal fetal abnormalities said they have been left out and let down by the new legislation.

The basis of the new bill is an Irish supreme court judgment 21 years ago, which successive governments until the current coalition have failed to implement.
