One day we all woke up to the reality of the 8th. Of what it actually meant for Irish women. For Irish wives. For Irish mothers. For Irish daughters. For Irish girlfriends. For Irish sisters. Our country welcomed in a woman from a hard difficult country for women. And what did we do. We left her die. For no reason. Absolutely no reason that is in any way possibly justifable. For years on here poster after poster has justified her death. Doing literally anything to avoid the plain truth that our 8th killed her.
We learnt because of her that Irish couples go every week to Liverpool for healthcare that Ireland refuses. We learnt that Irish doctors hands are tied unless you are on an unmeasurable pathway to death. We learnt that women were getting their child's ashes sent to them by DHL. We learnt that Ireland will incarcerate you if you dare say you are suicidal as they did to a teenager last year. We learnt that posters on here see nothing at all wrong with force feeding and locking up raped asylum seekers. We learnt that couples travel by boat to England in order to bring back the remains of their babies. We learnt that women bleeding heavily travel back on airplanes alone. With passengers oblivious to their silent suffering.
Last month we learn a raped 12 year old had to go abroad for an abortion. My daughter, your daughter, your sister, my sister.
The 8th does not prevent abortion. It sends the problem to England.
Next Friday, vote to end that hypocracy. Vote for your wife, your sister, your cousin, your girlfriend. Vote for Savita.
Vote for Michelle, for raped Y, for Sheila, for all our daughters, for A, B & C, for your sisters. For raped injuncted 14 year old Y. For the women with FFA. For the women who feel they have no other option. Trust us women to do the right thing.
