Rally called to implement citizens’ assembly decision at Dail today


A rally to remind the government to honour the advice of the citizens assembly has been called. 

The rally will take place at 5.30pm outside Leinster House in Dublin.

'Time for Action … No More Delays. Implement the Findings of the Citizens Assembly. Call a Referendum to #Repealthe8th,' reads the event description. 

The citizens' assembly met nine days ago and voted that Irish women should have access to abortion without restriction.

64 per cent of the assembly were in favour.

This outcome proves that the assembly, which is a representative of the Irish public, want the government to legislate for abortion.
