THE USI HAS WRITTEN TO THE JOINT OIREACHTAS COMMITTEE ON 8TH AMENDMENT AHEAD OF CRUCIAL VOTE

​The Union of Students in Ireland has written to all members of the Joint Oireachtas committee examining the 8th amendment, regarding the Committee’s final decision-making process.

USI has written the letter jointly with other ​leading civil society organisations including the National Women’s Council of Ireland (NWCI), the Abortion Right’s Campaign (ARC), the Coalition to Repeal the 8th Amendment, and Amnesty International Ireland, who are​ advocating for the repeal of the Eighth Amendment and the introduction of legislation mandating women’s and girls’ access to safe abortion in Ireland, in line with global and European good practice.

USI is clearly asking representatives to consider the ​recommendations as Oireachtas members submit their amendments this week.​
