The Citizens’ Assembly has been convened by the Government to make recommendations to the Oireachtas on a variety of topics, most notably on Constitutional reform. The Assembly has been taking submissions from the public on the first item for discussion, the Eighth Amendment. More information can be found at http://www.citizensassembly.ie/en/. This is my submission.
The continued existence of the Eighth Amendment threatens the wellbeing of everyone of childbearing age in this country and infantilises women, our legislature, and the population as a whole I hate the Eighth Amendment.
