Sunday's edition of the New York Times looked to Donegal to get a grasp of the Together for Yes campaign in the north west.
Members of the pro-choice group featured prominently in the New York Times as the polling day for the Referendum to Repeal the Eighth Amendment approaches on 25th May.
The opinion piece by Derry writer Susan McKay featured four prominent members of the Yes campaign from Carndonagh, Buncrana and Fanad. The author spoke with local people including Nora Newell, a Donegal woman who campaigned against the introduction of the Eighth Amendment to the constitution in 1983, Sinead Stewart, a mother of two who experienced the judgement of an unplanned pregnancy at the age of 19 and Cathleen Shiels of the Inishowen ARC.
Donegal Together for Yes spokesperson Cathie Shiels said, “The article in the New York Times shows how important this referendum is and how much interest there is around the world. The Eighth Amendment causes continuing harm to women, restricting their access to proper, safe healthcare in the country. It also restricts doctors from providing the healthcare that they know they need to deliver for fear of prosecution and a possible sentence of up to 14 years.”
Today is the final day for voters to get on the register for the May 25th referendum. For details on how to register in person, see the article below:
