We Are Not Vessels! Vigil in solidarity with suicidal woman denied abortion

Across Ireland and Europe, vigils are being held on Wed 20th Aug at 6.00pm in solidarity with the young woman who, suicidal because she was pregnant as a result of rape, was denied an abortion, forced to continue the pregnancy, forcibly rehydrated when in desperation she went on hunger and thirst strike - before being forced to deliver her rapist's baby by C-section. 

The UN Committee on the rights of women said that, in not allowing rape victims the right to abortion, Ireland treated such women as "vessels". 

Abortion is not available for women pregnant as a result of in the North either.
