Talking about intimate topics such as menstruation, sex, childbirth or abortion in the public is not always easy. As a human rights law graduate I have always been thinking whether I shall share my opinion about these topics, however one thing definitely makes me want to do so: the fact that some pro-life circles want to make people believe that with repealing the 8th Amendment of the Irish constitution demands for abortion would wreak havoc. As a woman coming from a former Communist and atheist country where abortion is still legal today, I can only tell you that the pro-life circles are incorrect.

This article is more of an opinion piece based on my personal experience than a legal research.
