Statement on Irish Abortion Referendum

National Council of Jewish Women of Australia (NCJWA) congratulates the people of Ireland on their historic vote on 25 May 2018 to repeal the 8th amendment to the country’s constitution, allowing the government to legislate for abortion.

NCJWA promotes the empowerment of women in the Jewish and wider community, and therefore supports the right of every woman to make decisions about her own healthcare.

NCJWA looks forward to the Irish government fulfilling its pledge to enact legislation permitting abortions by the end of 2018.
