Large Demonstration Outside Leinster House on Wednesday November 21 –

Legislate for Abortion Now

Clare Daly has re-tabled her bill to legalise abortion, which will be debated next
Wednesday.   ULA members distributed literature calling for another demo to coincide with the
legislation debate.

Praveen Halappanavar did an interview on RTÉ tonight calling for legalisation of abortion,
and thanking the over 10,000 people who demonstrated in Dublin last Saturday.

This crowd was overwhelmingly made up of people in their 20’s and 30’s, a big majority of
them women.

The government is still in a very deep crisis.

The public arena is transformed: see for example this pro-choice article by Vincent Browne
in the Irish Times :
