Adams calls for YES vote

Front Page

Gerry Adams canvassig for a YES vote with party activists.

Louth Sinn Féin TD Gerry Adams has urged voters in Louth and East Meath to support the removal of the eighth amendment from the constitution.

The Louth TD said: “The referendum to repeal the 8th amendment is fundamentally about trust, specifically the willingness of our society to trust women to make health decisions for themselves.

"The issue of women’s health should not be a matter for a constitution, nor should health professionals be forced to work in the shadow of an amendment that criminalises their actions and forces many women, including at least 83 women from Louth last year, to travel to Britain.

"The business of the State should be to ensure women have access to proper health care services if they need them and if they choose to avail of them”.
