Episode 02: Yes for Repeal

In this Episode of The Eighth, Yes for Repeal, Ciara meets women who are campaigning to remove the 8th amendment to the constitution. One woman tells her personal story of travelling to the UK for an abortion, another describes how she almost died during her pregnancy. Campaigners talk about what drives them, and a team of women in Waterford talk about ‘fighting the good fight’ in a pro-life city that ‘tends to be forgotten’. This episode is dedicated to the memory of Dympna Reilly.
