I wish I was in Ireland. I wish I was there to vote in this monumental referendum for women's rights. Today abortion is still illegal in Ireland and as such anyone who needs one has to get on a boat and go over to the U.K often alone and underage, surrounded by drunk brides out on the tear for their hen's weekends. There is no support. If you can't afford to go to the U.K you face having a back alley one at home. In the 21st century in the 1st world, there is no excuse for this. Church and State need to be separate entities and unfortunately that is not the case. Please tune in to The Thin Air on Dublin Digital Radio and follow all the amazing content on there where local Irish musicians and poets have submitted pieces based around Repeal the 8th and women's issues. The episode will be aired on Thursday 24th 8PM (Irish Standard Time), 12PM (PST), 3PM (EST).
I must extend a warm thank you to everyone on Facebook who has been running private, personal campaigns to get even one more Irish ex-pat home to vote on this. I was offered one, but couldn't go. Let's hope this week bring about substantial change for the future health and safety of our younger generations of women.
In the spirit of change and giving those with none a voice, I have recorded a Naked Sessions version of Feather.
Please help change Ireland's future history for good. Vote YES on 25th May
