Seeing characters in videogames or other non-Irish media with real Irish names
"We’ll care for your women until your government does"
fuck the BPAS is being so sassy here. But yeah so blunt its perfect
REPEAL THE 8TH
“I’m not ashamed of my sexuality by any means. The Rose of Tralee is about celebrating women’s intelligence, careers, their volunteer work. The question of sexuality just never came up.
Being gay and in a gay relationship is just one of the many things I identify and associate with. I’m confident in who I am as a person. I told my parents and they were supportive, as I knew they would be. If this can help any person to feel more comfortable with who they are, I’m happy”.
This “abortion stuff” is highlighting the serious problems with our laws and the lack of reproductive rights for women* in this country, and it’s in the interest of every decent Irish person to be informed on what’s going on, more than reblogging funny Father Ted gifs or a pretty photo of a castle.
If I’m shattering your hoity toity green fields and guinness image of Ireland, good. People are suffering in this country, and more people need to know.
What will it take for the Irish State to realise that the abortion “legislation” we currently have is completely useless? How many women must die, be tortured, and be shipped overseas before they take responsibility for their shoddy guidelines?
Please share this around as much as possible. Ireland is NOT a safe place for women seeking abortion. Current guidelines would have a woman in prison for 14 years for taking abortive medication, and that is an absolute disgrace.

We are not incubators. We are not vessels. We will NOT stay quiet.
Protest at the treatment of suicidal women seeking abortion and a call to repeal the 8th
This is happening tomorrow at the spire. PLEASE share this with everyone, invite as many people as you can, kick up a fuss, get angry, get your stompy boots on.
The woman refused an abortion says she was raped but did not know she was pregnant until she arrived in Ireland
Yo this country is fucked up beyond belief.
