Abortion referendum: Orange Order urges ‘No’ vote

Abortion referendum: Orange Order urges ‘No’ vote

Ireland is set to head to the polls on Friday for a historic referendum that will determine whether the country's near-total ban on abortion will remain in place or be repealed.

Rossi Maloney aged 2 who featured as a "No" campaign poster child after his mother Emma Maloney credits the 8th Amendment for saving his life after an unplanned pregnancy, holds a Pro-Life poster ahead of a 25th May referendum on abortion law, in Dublin, Ireland, May 23, 2018. The government would then introduce a bill on abortion that would be debated in parliament. "It's about the values of the kind of country that we want to have", says Ailbhe Smyth, co-director of the Together For Yes campaign group, and a long-time feminist.

"South Korean women are being denied reproductive choices that should be their right", said Liesl Gerntholtz, women's rights director.

"Remember: Brexit wasn't supposed to pass, and Donald Trump wasn't supposed to get elected", he said.

The referendum to repeal the Eighth Amendment, which guarantees an equal right to life for mother and foetus, is worded thus: "Provision may be made by law for the regulation of termination of pregnancies".

Two pills (mifepristone and misoprostol) taken 24 to 48 hours apart are needed for a medical abortion, but campaigners want women to be encouraged to take the pills simultaneously in the interests of convenience - and perhaps to stop them changing their minds, which is still possible after taking the first pill.

The majority of #HomeToVote tweets have come from "yes" voters, but advocates for the "no" side have also used it to spread their message.

The country's Eighth Amendment to the constitution, which was passed in 1983, recognizes the right to life of the unborn child.

"The cost of my travel home from Toronto to vote for a woman's right to choose is less than what I paid for when I was forced to travel to the U.K.to access an abortion", she said in a blog post on Amnesty's website. Should a yes vote prevail on the 25th May, it will enable the government to legislate for allowing access to abortion.

Tara Flynn was 37 when she found out she was pregnant. Halappanavar died of sepsis shortly after.

"I felt trapped in my body and trapped in my country", said Flynn, now 48. No matter what you may hear, women do not die because of the Eighth Amendment.

After researching online, Flynn traveled to Amsterdam for the abortion.

But Mullally, 34, says that over her lifetime, she has seen the influence of the church wane dramatically, including over her parents. "It is a vote to say, I don't send you away anymore". Here, she shares her story with Sky News.

Speaking in Merrion Park in Dublin, Minister Creed highlighted that, throughout his nearly 30 years in political life, Article 43.3 of the constitution has continuously dominated debate in Ireland. In the run-up to the referendum, members of IMELDA returned home to undertake a road trip around Ireland.

The only exception to the law is if the mother is in an immediate risk of death.

But that compromise was dismissed by Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, a medical doctor who favors repealing the constitutional ban.

There have been a number of high profile, distressing cases in the recent past which have highlighted the inadequacy of the current law.

An elderly Dublin man, John Byrne, wore a "no" button on his lapel.

I am going home to vote NO to ensure that we retain our commitment to life at all stages. "Kill is such a terrible word, it's such a nasty word, but how else do I describe taking a life before its natural end, that someone could choose to end another person's life that is a human, maybe a small human but still nonetheless a human?"

"I drank, and I remember sleeping in the bushes in Merrion Square".

He told me to leave work and spend time with her, so I did.

We knew then she was gone.

Voting has already taken place on Ireland's remote islands so that paper ballots can be taken to the mainland and counted in time.
