Tell a Fine Gael TD: Day 1 Lucinda Creighton

Take One Minute to Ring, Email, Tweet, Post, or Visit for Choice today!

Starting today and running through next Wednesday we will be focusing on one TD a day, telling them in every medium we have available that women in Ireland need abortion legislation and need that legislation to address real concerns, real needs. We aim to make it very clear to these elected officials, while they makes decisions on the Heads of Bill and vote, that the constituencies and country they come from want legal abortion and legislation to makes that possible. Below we have sample tweets, posts, emails, and messages you can send and clinic hours where relevant. Join us in sharing the reality of pro-choice views with Minister Lucinda Creighton.

for women getting elected but not elective abortions

The Minister of State for European Affairs speaks to women about how to get elected. She asserts that Ireland is a great place to be a woman but has been outspoken in her opposition to abortion.

As a member of Fine Gael and an outspoken opponent of abortion in Ireland, Lucinda Creighton needs to know, from the people she serves and represents, just how important real, powerful legislation for abortion is to the people she was elected to represent. As the week goes on we will focus on Fine Gael TDs from different areas, with different views but our main message is the same: We want legislation for abortion, legislation that provides for the health and rights of women, and we want Lucinda Creighton to know that we want that abortion access in Ireland.

Dear Minister Creighton:

I am writing to inform you that access to abortion in Ireland is important to me. I want the rights and health of women respected; I want abortion in Ireland. I call on you to hear the thousands of men and women who want legislation on abortion without bureaucracy and complicated contingencies, to hear the thousands of women who have risked their health and livelihoods to travel to other parts of Europe to get the procedure they need. I call on you to respond to those needs by ceasing your opposition to legislation that will make abortion accessible for women in Ireland.

Respectfully,

[your name]
