Repeal the 8th (Ireland)

The Abortion Rights Campaign and coalition of pro-choice groups in Ireland are gathering signatures to call for a referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment to the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland.

The Eighth Amendment equates the right to life of a pregnant woman with that of an embryo or foetus. In doing so it criminalises abortion in all cases except where to continue a pregnancy would result in death.
