@amnestyuk I am immensely saddened that this is still our reality, in 2018! Some people still believe that women shouldn’t have a right to an abortion, even in the events of incest or/and rape? Those are not my people!
Unfortunately, rape happens all over the world. 😢
A few years ago, my son was bullied at school. One boy threatened that if my son didn’t leave the school, he “will rape his mum”, ME! This was so, so shocking! I can’t tell you how sorry my husband and I felt for our son. They were only ten. But a few days before this incident happened, we watched the BBC news in the morning & sadly rape was mentioned. Our ten year old son asked us what rape meant. My husband and I explained to him that apart from a murder, rape is the worst possible form of assault on any person; man, or a woman, but unfortunately rape is inflicted on women more often.
He was so saddened by this. So when this boy threatened him, his poor ten year old mind truly believed the threat. He needed a lot of reassurance.
My husband and I can’t bring ourselves to explain to our son that there are still some countries which punish women for requesting an abortion after a rape. And as we are in 2018, it is mind boggling to think that this still happens in an European country. In Ireland.
Imagine the women from 1918, who were subjected to rapes and assaults, who without any doubt didn’t have any rights or laws protecting them, imagine them finding out that women in 2018 still have no rights to request a legal and safe abortion after their assault!
Isn’t the psychological & physical trauma of her rape not enough?! “Nooooo, let’s punish her more by taking her freedom of choice away from her! And if she chooses what to do with her own body, let’s put her into a prison too!”🤬 This bullies our daughters into not reporting their rapists. This tells them that they have no rights over decisions about their OWN bodies.
I hope the law changes in Ireland. Please vote to change the law.

You can be Pro-Life AND Pro-Choice ❤️❤️ But we can never fully “embody” our full human rights if we do not have bodily autonomy. Human rights cannot be conditional. I am a woman not a vessel. My worth as a woman should not be dictated by my ability or choice to procreate or not procreate. Tomorrow I will stand on the shoulders of all the women throughout Irish history/her-story who have fought for equality & liberty. I will be making my voice heard for all the women across Irish history who were never listened to. I will be joining with my sisters and brothers who have campaigned long & hard to bring the facts to the Irish people in the most creative, respectful, sensitive, factually correct and inspiring campaign. First & foremost this is a vote for equal rights & autonomy. Equality can only be achieved when women have full power over their bodies. Tomorrow I am proud to Vote YES for me, for you, for our sisters, our mothers, our daughters, our wives, our friends, our neighbours & the strangers in the street who I understand have a right to full healthcare, compassion & dignity regardless of their lifestyle or personal circumstances. I don’t need to know their life story to know they are worthy. They, WE, are already worthy. Repeal the 8th. Vote YES 💪❤️👵🏼👩🏼👧🏽🧕🏽👱🏼♀️👵🏽💪❤️ #repeal #repealthe8th #voteyes #yes #friday #may25th #equality #liberty #female #woman #women #feminism #bodilyautonomy #referendum #health #mentalhealth #healthcare #history #wellness #wellbeing #change #justice #socialjustice #sister #prochoice #dublin #ireland #freedom #power #love
