Repeal the 8th Amendment!

Looking back at campaigning against the 8th Amendment in 1983. Still fighting against it today, we spoke to present and past members including Anne Finnegan, Mary Diskin, Eilish Matthews, Padraig Mannion and Seamus McDonagh.

The Eighth Amendment equates the right to life of a pregnant woman with that of an embryo or foetus. In doing so it criminalises abortion in all cases except where to continue a pregnancy would result in death.
