Pro-choice activists are planning to distribute abortion pills from a bus touring Northern Ireland this week in protest against the near-total ban on terminations in the region.

The medication is illegal in Northern Ireland which, after the referendum in the Republic on Friday, will soon be the only place in the UK and the island of Ireland where women cannot terminate unwanted pregnancies.

Members of Rosa (Reproductive Rights, Against Oppression, Sexism & Austerity) will offer the pills from an “abortion bus” touring Belfast, Derry, Lisburn and Cookstown.

What should the PSNI do?

They've achieved what they set out to achieve, now they have to face the anticlimax that follows any such movement for change, but they can't deal with it. We saw the same phenomenon after the SSM campaign. But now they have to deal with the loss of the support system that the campaign represented and get back to the lonely reality of the boring, daily grind.

Use the bus as a distraction and post pills to women's groups addresses while the PSNI are chasing buses.

It's a bit surreal, no? a bus going around handing out abortions. Sure just grind them up and introduce them to the public water supply, abortions for all. Whatever your opinion on legalized abortion is, it's kinda creepy these people exist, you'd wonder what motivates them.

ROSA Archives - Socialist Party (Ireland)

They don't make that much of a secret that they are a front for the Socialist Party Trotskyites.
I'm curious Ratio, you are a pro-lifer, it's an issue you cling tight to yet you have several times expressed your admiration for Modern Russia, even expressing a wish to live there if you could only speak the language and secure employment. It is a country that has the exact same laws on abortion that the Irish public just endorsed. Also Russia has the highest rate of abortion anywhere in the world, over a million abortions per year are carried out there and Russia is in sever demographic decline.

I'm not sure if I can buy the belief completely that human life begins at conception so I wouldn't be in the same camp as "Half Nelson", when I was a Protestant I had more of an Islamic attitude to the question than what is normal among Ulster Protestants however as I have gotten older I have become more opposed to it. What you say about Russia is true- after the coup that took place after the probable murder of Stalin (who by the way banned abortion and also made peace with the Russian Orthodox Church- Irish people have a really distorted view him of him outside of a couple of people such as Tadgh on this forum) the whole abortion culture came in, however the thing is that State there is working on bringing this to an end.
