Protest at Dáil Wednesday 21 November 6pm

As you probably know by now, a woman named Savita Halappanavar died in an Irish hospital recently. She was pregnant and miscarrying. She asked doctors for a medical termination repeatedly over three days and was denied.

Her tragic death makes me ashamed to live in this country. You can check some of the international reaction here.

Six successive governments have sat on their hands when it came to abortion legislation in this country. This seventh government HAS to implement legislation before more lives are lost.

Two thousand people gathered last Wednesday in an impromptu vigil for Savita. On Saturday last, 20,000 gathered outside government buildings. See the photos below.

Today, Wednesday November 21, at 6pm, let’s gather once again at government buildings to keep the pressure on those who say they represent us. They say they won’t be rushed into making a decision, but some of them cowards have sat in Dáil Éireann for over 20 years and never stood up for the rights of women.

Get out on the streets tonight!
