The London Irish Abortion Rights Campaign writes:
Comedians Graham Linehan, Sara Pascoe and Aisling Bea played to a sold out audience of at the London-Irish Centre in Camden last night
The ‘Stand Up for Choice’ gig was organised by the London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign – a grassroots organisation, calling for the legalisation of abortion in Northern Ireland and the Republic.
All profits were donated to Abortion Rights Campaign and the Abortion Support Network, which offers financial support to women who have to travel to Britain for an abortion.
Graham spoke to the audience about his wife Helen’s abortion in London after their baby was diagnosed with a fatal foetal abnormality – and compared it to the treatment they would have received in Ireland.
“Me and wife had a horrible experience. But we were in England. The End,” he said.
The event was hosted by Tiff Stevenson, who recently wrote about her own experience of abortion. Jarlath Regan, Grainne Maguire, Eleanor Tiernan, Stuart Black and Wendy Wason also took to the stage.
