ARC welcomes Taoiseach’s commitment to support referendum

The Abortion Rights Campaign welcomes the Taoiseach’s announcement that he will campaign to liberalise Ireland’s abortion laws

In response to Leo Varadkar’s comments on BBC Radio 4 this morning, ARC spokesperson Linda Kavanagh said:

“We commend the Taoiseach for the journey he has taken in the past few years. As we have seen from the Citizens Assembly and the Joint Oireachtas Committee, the more factual information people have, the more they come to a compassionate pro-choice position. We welcome the leadership shown by the Taoiseach as we move forwards toward repealing the Eighth and making abortion care available in Ireland for all who need it.”
