Irish Antiabortion Campaigners Rally Ahead of Eighth Amendment Referendum


Campaigners to retain Ireland’s constitutional ban on abortion held their last major rally in Dublin on Saturday, two weeks ahead of a vote on the procedure in one of the few European countries that still outlaws it.

The organizers said tens of thousands of abortion opponents demonstrated near Ireland’s legislature, seeking to gather support to keep the ban. The Irish will vote on May 25 on whether to repeal the 1983 ban on abortion, which was the eighth amendment to the country’s constitution.
