🤝A step towards #repealthe8th as we build towards a referendum. 🤝 . First positive result - The committee’s recommendations are to be forwarded to the Dáil for consideration . . The Oireachtas Committee on the Eighth Amendment is to recommend Article 40.3.3 be repealed from the Constitution and the Oireachtas be given the power to legislate. The proposal was tabled by Labour TD Jan O’Sullivan and supported by 14 members of the 21-member committee. Six members voted against with the chairwoman abstaining.” - #8committee

‪Been an absolute privilege & honour to chair a committee of such hard working and committed politicians. ‬ ‪My hope is for a mature & calm debate in which all views are heard & above all that we continue to look at the facts & daily reality of women's healthcare. ‬ ‪#8committee ‬

Today as the #8committee vote inside Dáil Éireann, outside up to 12 women effected by the 8th are forced to travel overseas to access abortion services, as a sticker in Dublin Airport Said " Travelling for an abortion? You are not alone. This airport holds the shadows of tens of thousands of women who who have gone before you. We are everyone. We are everywhere. We see you. We support you. We offer you love, strength and solidarity on your journey. Be well and get angry. They cannot keep doing this to us." Today is an incredibly important today in our move towards #repealthe8th thinking of all those who have been fighting & working towards this for decades and every single person effected by the 8th .

I don’t often share work stuff here, but: if you’re interested, here’s how the Oireachtas committee on the 8th Amendment voted on various issues today. (As adapted in tomorrow’s Irish Times!) #8committee

Eight quotes from the members of the #8committee today, as they presented their report. Encouraging words, which show hearts and minds can be changed when compelling facts and evidence are put forward. Share some of these comments with your family and friends this Xmas. And no matter what side of the debate they come down on, encourage them to read the Oireachtas Committee report and stay informed. #choice4xmas #ldnirish4choice #repealthe8th #trustwomen

You can help ASN help these callers by going to ASN.ORG.UK. And if you're in Ireland tell your TDs to support the #8committee recommendations. #repost @freesafelegal Amidst all the Christmas cheer and festivities the heartbreaking reality of the effect of our repressive abortion laws. Every person in this country deserves to have access to healthcare at home, to make their own decisions about their health and their well-being. No one should have to travel. We are ending this cruelty in 2018, join us. #freesafelegal #repealthe8th

We've added a counter to our website showing the number of women who have had abortions since 1968. The counter will go up by 12 every day for the 9 who travel to the UK & the 3 who take abortion pills here. #repealthe8th #trustwomen #Give8Repeal8 #8committee

And there we have it... the #8committee report. #repealthe8th #freesafelegal

By the time they get back another 384 women & girls from Ireland will had an abortion. 288 will travel & 96 will take abortion pills. The 8th Amendment doesn't prevent abortions. #repealthe8th #Give8Repeal8 #8committee

Lots of you are donating in Mattie McGraths name (particularly Tipp repealers) 🤣 You can #GIVE8REPEAL8 on behalf of anyone you like. But don't forget the senator - after all its Christmas 🎄 Link in bio #repealthe8th #8committee #TrustWomen

Women are disproportionately affected by the combination of sweat shops producing fast fashion, and environmental damage caused by tons of clothes going to landfill. Fighting for women's rights at home shouldn't lean on those with different struggles or less of a voice. Proud that the brilliant women of @voices4choice chose tshirts that are fairtrade and organic cotton, and printed in Dublin. Skirt, €3 in @irishcancersociety shop. One woman's rubbish is another woman's colourful choral ensemble! 🎶✊ #repealthe8th #voices4choice #8committee #denimisforever #lovedclotheslast #buylesschoosewell #sustainablestyle #30wears #30wearschallenge #whomademyclothes #ootd #fashionforgood #fashionrevolution #slowfashion #sustainable #fairfashion #thriftstorefinds #ecofriendly #opshop #ReuseRepairRecycle #upcycle #zerowaste #environment

Christmas isn't all presents and mince pies for some, especially those who are forced to travel. Hopefully with the excellent news from the #8committee this will no longer have to happen and pregnant people can access Healthcare at home. #repealthe8th #reproductiverights #righttochoose #healthcare #abortionrights #trustwomen #listentowomen #solidarity #reproductiverights #dublin #ireland #dublinnorthwest #activism #bodilyautonomy #feminism #abortion #prochoice #transrights #ballymun #santry #finglas

This goes to show the result of sitting down and engaging with the evidence presented at the #8committee as Mattie McGrath should have. Mattie was given the opportunity to provide facts to the committee to back up his conjecture but failed to do so. Tipperary deserves better. . . . . . . . #repeal #reproductiverights #repealthe8th #freesafelegal #abortionrights #tippforchoice #tipperary
