Bríd Smith TD and CPP on Joint Committee for Repeal 8th amendment 15.11.17

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF EUROS OF PUBLIC MONEY IS GOING TO ANTI CHOICE ORGANISATIONS. I sit on the Joint committee on Repeal of 8th. Yesterday reps from the Crisis Pregnancy Programme (CPP), a state agency funded through the HSE, attended the committee meeting. The CPP provides funding for counselling services for women with crisis pregancies. About a third of the counselling centres nationwide, funded through the CPP with public money, wont give women who need it, information on clinics in England or elsewhere, where they might go for an abortion. This is outrageous!
