The failure of the Fine Gael/Labour government to publish the so-called expert group on abortion’s report again this month is a clear indication of just how seriously they take the issue of abortion. Like every government before them they are content to kick the problem down the road or pretend it doesn’t exist.

Join the protest on Wednesday and tell this government that we will no longer tolerate their delating tactics. Women's lives are in danger until we have this legislation.

Legislate now for X!

Join us at the Dail, Kildare Street from 6pm on Wednesday 14th November.

Called by Pro-Chocie campaign

Woman dies after being denied a termination
Woman dies after being denied a termination - Indymedia Ireland

Pro-Choice Ireland have called a demonstration for 6 o'clock this evening Wednesday 14th November outside Leinster House.

Action on X in conjunction with Galway Pro-Choice has called a candle lit vigil for this Saturday the 17th of November beginning at the Garden of Remembrance at 4 o'clock .

31 year old Savita Halappanavar died last week after being denied a termination after presenting with a miscarriage. Having originally presented at the hospital with a back pain on October 21st, it was discovered that Savita was miscarrying. She was 17 weeks pregnant at the time.

Over the course of 3 days in the hospital the doctors refused to carry out an abortion despite there being no hope of survival of the foetus. Savita had requested and abortion several times over the 3 days due to the severe pain she was suffering. She was refused an abortion on the basis that the foetal heartbeat was still beating and that “this is a Catholic country”. After 3 days the foetal heartbeat stopped and finally the foetus was removed. However Savita developed septicaemia caused by the miscarriage and died on the 28th. ...

March for Murder?

No thanks.
Whatever your views are on abortion, fine but do you really have to belittle yourself by slagging off people with different opinions than yourself without putting forward your opinion. Try thinking about things, you might be surpised what you find

Over 2,000 at Dail, an angry crowd who are not prepared to wait another 20 years for action on the X Case.

The demo on Saturday will be a lot bigger.
