The TD for Dublin South Central said that she is hoping for the largest March for Choice of all time and thinks that everyone who believes that women’s bodies do not belong in the constitution should attend the march.Read more »

Following the biggest yet pro-Choice demonstration in Dublin of 40 to 50,000, People Before Profit Choice held a post-demo meeting in Toners Pub in Baggott St. Bríd addressed the meeting and said the demand for ‘a women’s right to choose’ is the demand for equality. She links the denial of full rights for women with the denial of other rights including workers’ rights to decent wages, and our communities’ rights to adequate public services – like housing and health, rights denied by the current government and the establishment parties. She said to win our rights, we have to ‘GET POLITICAL’, and invites all who agree to join People Before Profit.

A lively pro-choice demo was held outside the premises used by anti-choice bigots posing as a counselling service for women facing crisis pregnancy. The abusive practices, engaged in by these bigots, was exposed by an under-cover reporter for the London Times (Irish edition). Brid Smith TD addresses the demo.
