Women are driving a bus around Ireland today to fight for safe access to abortion
A group of activists are driving a bus around Ireland on International Women’s Day to fight for reproductive rights in their country.
The members of ROSA (Reproductive rights against Oppression, Sexism, and Austerity) plan to drive the bus between Dublin, Cork, and Galway in a campaign for the repeal of the 8th amendment, which puts heavy restrictions on abortion access.
According to ROSA, about 12 women travel every day from Ireland and Northern Ireland to other countries in Great Britain to access abortion procedures.
The bus is making its way to Dublin so that members of ROSA can participate in the mass protest, “March4Repeal,” on Wednesday.
