Brave woman uses @Ireland to discuss abortion

Started in March 2012 and maintained by WorldIrish, the @Ireland account switches from person to person every week. This rotation it’s found a powerful voice in Janet Ní Shuilleabháin, a feminist who has taken the opportunity to declare her support for legalized abortion across the country.

In Ireland, abortion rights are deeply contentious. Approximately 84.2% of the Republic of Ireland self-identifies as Roman Catholic, according to central government surveys taken in 2011. Largely, as a result, abortions that are performed for any reason other than to save the life of the mother are illegal. Under a law originally passed in 1861 and which stands to this day, abortion is punishable by life imprisonment. Since 1980, an estimated 138,000 Irish women have traveled abroad (mostly to England) to terminate pregnancies.

Janet is awesome. Some of you might know her as the woman at Octocon 2013 who would run in at the end of panels and do jazz hands to tell you there were 10 minutes left. :)

Here she is discussing bisexuality on Ireland AM: http://www.tv3.ie/3player/show/184/75655/1/Ireland-AM

There have been so many amazing people with uteruses and without who have been fighting for reproductive rights in Ireland for years and it’s really great to finally see Ireland receiving the shame it deserves for forcing people to travel overseas for basic medical services. This not only shames people who seek abortions, but often causes financial and personal hardship, and there are many people who can’t legally or financially leave the country (asylum seekers for example). After the death of Savita Halappanavar, and massive public outcry, and demonstrations, we finally got a bill into law that allows for termination where the life of the pregnant person is at risk, but not the health. And even then, there are difficult hoops to jump through. The bill introduced a lot of horrible provisions, but it’s a start. Now Ireland must repeal the 8th Ammendment which states:

The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.

You can find out more about why here.

Panti’s Noble Call at the Abbey Theatre

Panti Bliss talks about homophobia in a beautiful speech at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin.

The speech was prompted by the Irish broadcaster RTE paying damages to anti-gay rights campaigners that Panti described as homophobic.

I’m sure lots of people aren’t aware of the current debate going on in Ireland over homophobia and broadcast censorship in the country (the link above sums it up pretty well for those who are interested) but Panti’s speech is worth watching even apart from the issue at hand.
