The ‘She Lives On Your Street’ campaign states that the 8th Amendment affects all women in Ireland, and these women live on every street in every community across the country.

Speaking at the launch, she said: “Like many people in this country I’ve thought about this a lot and my views have changed over the years.

“Ultimately I came to conclusion that this affects all of us, directly or indirectly, no matter who you are.”

“I say to people, ‘do you think you don’t know a woman who’s had to travel to the UK or had to order pills online?

“Because looking at figures, the chances are you do. She lives in your community. She may even live on your street.

“And this woman, no matter who she is, needs our support and compassion.”

Spokesperson of Together for Yes, Sarah Monaghan added: “We know that abortion is already here in Ireland.

“Everyone acknowledges this. Every day, women are travelling to the UK and they are taking abortion pills at home, alone, in the secrecy of their bedrooms and bathrooms, without any medical supervision.”


“It is estimated that more than 170,000 women in Ireland have travelled to access abortion services since the 8th amendment was inserted into the Irish Constitution 35 years ago.

“The vote on May 25 isn’t a vote for or against abortion – because it is already here.
