The March For Choice on Saturday organised by the Abortion Rights Campaign was a momentous occasion. It was a tipping point, a demonstration that the support for free, safe and legal abortion extends far beyond the considered decision of the Citizens’ Assembly.
The diversity of the crowd was noticeable, as families, children, men, women, trans people, people from all over Ireland, young and old, gathered in their thousands.
