The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS -

THOU­SANDS of peo­ple at­tended a rally in favour of re­tain­ing the Eighth Amend­ment in the up­com­ing ref­er­en­dum in Dublin yes­ter­day.

Crowds gath­ered at Mer­rion Square for the Love Both Vote No rally, the last ma­jor rally on the No side be­fore the ref­er­en­dum on May 25.

Kerry GP Dr An­drew O’Re­gan told the crowd that the ref­er­en­dum was ‘not about healthcare’ and would lead to ‘un­re­stricted abor­tion on de­mand’.

The crowd was also ad­dressed by Ber­nadette Goulding, who runs a sup­port group for women who have had an abor­tion and re­gret their de­ci­sion. She spoke about her own abor­tion.

Gavin Boyle, a 20-year-old stu­dent, told the crowd that he is alive to­day be­cause of the Eighth Amend­ment.
