14 years in prison. In Ireland you face 14 years in prison for having an abortion. Even in the case of rape. Incest. Foetal abnormalities to the point its not even viable outside the womb. Women like Savita Halappanavar have died in hospital beds from blood poisoning because doctors refused to remove the septic foetus because it still had a heartbeat. We’re expected, honestly expected to die a dignified christian death along with a foetus or face 14 years in prison. A reported 12 of us travel to England every DAY seeking safe abortion. So what of those who can’t travel, can’t afford to or are unable to sneak away? I’m in full support of whatever strikes happen across the country. Why did they even bother closing the Laundries if they’re still going to hold our bodies hostage.
