Kildare Street, Dublin 2
People Before Profit TDS Brid Smith TD and Richard Boyd Barrett TD brandish A-Kare abortion pills while speaking to the media outside Leinster House ahead of the 8th Referendum on May 25.
Ms Smith said:
“In this country we have an intolerable situation where the sentence for taking an abortion pill is double that of a convicted rapist. It is truly barbaric. We need a yes vote in the upcoming referendum so we can begin to reverse this.
Increasingly young people are accessing this pill on the internet as a form of having the termination but they do it isolated, without medical supervision and they do it in situations which are considered by the medical profession to be dangerous.”
