Labour Senator, and life long campaigner for repeal, Ivana Bacik has tonight welcomed the signing into law of the Act that gives effect to the repeal of the 8th amendment following the decision of the people in May.

Senator Bacik said:

“It is an overwhelming relief to all of us who have campaigned for repeal for decades, but while it is wonderful to see it repealed, it is also bittersweet as so many women’s lives have been so irrevocably damaged by its continued presence in our Constitution for so long.”
