We did it. They listened.
Reflecting on last weekend’s Yes vote.
Shouts outs in this to the members of TFMR Ireland, I hope this means they don’t have to tell their stories again, and esp to Amanda Mellet who is suing Ireland and winning put pressure on the Government to resolve this.
Also to Tara Flynn, if you can buy her books as a token of thanks and support.
To Amanda Palmer who’s book the Art of Asking and her sharing her own stories about her abortions helped me long my way.
To everyone who put their shoulder to the wheel, who helped start and grow the abortion rights campaign, who set up other groups, who held meetings and did stalls when there was no inkling of a referendum, to all those who marched, leafleted, who canvassed, to those who could not, but had the important conversations with the people in their life, and all those who shared their stories.
Thank you, thank you so much.
and to everyone who voted, Yes. Thank you
They Listened, WE did it.
