Dublin City Council will vote on a motion calling for the repeal of the 8th Amendment, in a motion proposed by Anti-Austerity Alliance Councillor Michael O’Brien.
Further to this, the Abortion Rights Campaign writes:
ARC is asking you today to write/email/ring/text your local Councillors urging them to support this motion to hold a referendum to repeal the 8th.
A sample email is below, though we encourage you to personalize your message and include your address so that your Councillor knows they are hearing from a local constituent.
Dear Councillor ______________, I’m writing to urge you to vote in support of the motion proposed to hold a referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment of the Constitution. Though the motion is non-binding, it is an important statement of consensus from our capital city. The 8th Amendment poses a direct risk to the health and lives of women and girls in Ireland and must be repealed as a matter of urgency. One opinion poll after another shows that the Irish people are calling for a referendum to repeal the 8th. We are asking you to represent our voices at the council meeting tonight. Regards,
