Together for Yes-Global Perspectives on Women’s Right to Access an Abortion

by | May 16, 2018

On Friday May 25, Ireland will hold a referendum on repealing the 8th Amendment which constitutionalizes the right to life of the unborn and creates a near total ban on abortion. The OxHRH supports the Together for Yes campaign that seeks to repeal the 8th Amendment and protect women’s sexual and reproductive health rights.

In solidarity and in the lead up to the referendum next week, we will be showcasing blogs and podcasts that discuss women’s right to access abortion around the world.
