Sinn Féin supports Votes for Repeal rally
Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald TD has extended her party’s support for today’s Votes for Repeal rally organised by the Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment.
The Dublin Central TD said:
“International Women’s Day is an opportunity for women to take stock of what we have achieved and to focus on the challenges we have yet to overcome.
“Sinn Féin elected representatives and activists have gathered to extend a collective shout-out in support of today’s Votes for Repeal rally. Our elected representatives and activists will take party in the rally and march.
“The upcoming referendum will be about the whole of Irish society joining together and saying that women are entitled to their fundamental right to healthcare.
“As a society we have a historic responsibility to get this right. Respect and compassion for women must win out.
“It is time to trust women, it is time to allow doctors to do their job and it is time for legislators to do ours.
“Sinn Féin will be supporting the Votes for Repeal rally organised by the Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment and we are encouraging others to do so too.”
