Support the Recommendations of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Eighth Amendment
As a constituent of yours, I am contacting you today to ask you to support the recommendations from Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Eighth Amendment.
The Committee recommended that a referendum be put to the people of Ireland to repeal the Eighth Amendment from Bunreacht na hÉireann. The Committee also recommended and outlined guidelines for legislation on the provision of abortion services to follow on from an eventual repeal of Article 40.3.3. I believe that the Committee’s recommendations reflect the wishes of a majority of the Irish people as reflected in research, opinion polls and the growth of a nation-wide social movement for repeal.
I ask that you be open-minded, courageous and compassionate in considering this question and that you listen to the expert witnesses who came before the Committee. It is now time that we allow the people of Ireland have their say on this issue.
So, as a constituent of yours, I want to know: will you support the Committee’s recommendation for a referendum to repeal the Eighth Amendment and let the people of Ireland have their say?
