Who we are

The Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment is a growing alliance of over 80 organisations including human rights, feminist and pro-choice organisations, trade unions, health organisations, NGOs, community organisations and many others. Our members agree that the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution must be repealed in order to respect and protect the lives, health and choices of women in Ireland. We are working together under the Coalition banner to raise awareness of the urgent need for a referendum to repeal the Eighth Amendment. Our steering group meets monthly, and Coalition member organisations nominate up to two representatives to attend meetings.
