Emily McElarney : Such a long hard fight. Will it ever end?

Aoife Masters : Powerful video ❤️❤️hopefully on Friday we will break away from the Catholic Church's control on Irish society once and for all #repealthe8th

Paula O'Neill : Very powerful and thought provoking. 100% true, but it beggars belief. Repeal the 8th

Andrea Cullen : thank you for your work, this video tells an important story called truth

Paul Duane : It's overwhelming to see the whole story told so clearly & calmly. Brilliant & important work.

Gergely Abádi : Good job Ireland, I'm really happy that the nation could make the right CHOICE.

Nicholas Austin Dwyer : This is beautiful well done

Ciaran McGrath : Beautifully made video. Tells the story of how we got here as well as anything I’ve seen.

Mr Sifter : Add the next dark chapter in Irelands history with the next video. Killing tens of thousands of innocent babies in abortion clinics. PS 800 bodies found in a septic tank in Tuam was a media hoax. Anyone who looks up the facts knows that was BS

Philip O'Carroll : Great video, albeit focused very much on one side. A few mistakes and omissions: the X case girl and family had already travelled to the UK when an injunction was served, they returned without X having a termination. X subsequently won the case but suffered a miscarriage. The mass grave in Tuam was not found to contain 800 bodies, many remains were found, but the 800 figure comes from the 796 named on Catherine Corliss list. However most of all you need to note the McGee case 1974, where Mary McGee and her husband won their case in the Supreme Court to access contraception. This was won on the basis of marital privacy. This was close enough to the privacy argument in the US case Roe v Wade 1973. This one case was the spur that started the anti-abortion movement in Ireland who feared it would introduce abortion on the same grounds. So it's important not to see Ireland in isolation.

Margaret O'Brien : And we're still fighting against this shit, all the wasted and suffering lives, nearly half a century later.

edel griffith : Powerful video that shows how far we have yet to come. I hope something can be put right on May 25th.

Finbarr Cooper : Sometimes private issues need public support.

Ursula Barry : Powerful work that captures the decades. Ursuls

Sadhbh Goodhue : Very informative if somewhat depressing reminder of this country’s slow progress in relation to women’s rights, and sexual and reproductive rights generally. Great job on putting this together.

Anne Byrne : How did so many many women survive in Ireland between the the church and state we're lucky to be here to vote at all. Yes all the way from me

Porn Victim : Really well put together. Sad and shameful. I hope it sways the undecided towards yes.
