Peter McGoran talks to Elaine Crory of the Alliance For Choice about their efforts to secure bodily autonomy for Northern Irish women.
Following the overwhelming success of the Repeal movement, campaigners are now turning their attention to Northern Ireland, which remains the only part of Ireland and the UK where abortion is illegal. Elaine Crory campaigned heavily during the referendum, and now says that the pressure is on for change up North.
“Alliance For Choice is a sister organisation of the Abortion Rights Campaign,” she explains. “We worked alongside the Together For Yes campaign in the south, so we very much see the referendum result as a joint victory. Now the push is on for change up here as well.”
Elaine has witnessed the steady growth in support for abortion rights in Northern Ireland over the past few years.
