first_imgDonegal Sinn Fein members have officially launched their campaign for a Yes vote in the upcoming abortion referendum.Party activists and elected representatives from across the county attended the launch this week to campaign for a Yes vote, to enable women to get vital healthcare with compassion in Ireland.Speaking at the launch, Sinn Fein party chairperson in Donegal, Cllr Jack Murray said; “Sinn Féin members in Donegal have already erected posters and have been supporting the Together for Yes campaign across the county. Our members have also been active on the ground and engaging with people on the doorsteps. “We want to see a strong Yes vote returned from Donegal.“I understand the difficulties that many people have on this issue. It isn’t black and white and it is extremely complex.“It is vital however, that women in Ireland be entitled to the full healthcare access that a modern and compassionate society can provide. The eighth amendment prevents that.“We also need to recognise that the eighth amendment doesn’t stop Irishwomen having abortions. Thousands of women have travelled to England to do so. Thousands of women import abortion pills to this state every year. These are women in our communities; women we all know and they are doing so without any medical supervision. “They deserve to be cared for with compassion in Ireland.“It is for those reasons that we are campaigning for a Yes vote and asking the people of Donegal to do so on May 25th.”Donegal Sinn Féin launch campaign for Yes vote was last modified: May 2nd, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:8th amendementreferendumSinn FeinYESlast_img
