Irish actress Amy Huberman has lent support to the “Together for Yes” campaign ahead of the upcoming abortion referendum.

The 39-year-old mother-of-two announced on Twitter this weekend that she was pro-choice for reasons including "compassion in crisis".

“Firstly I believe each to their own,” she said. “And in turn the very essence of that being choice. As I see it, it isn’t pro anything other than choice.”

“For basic healthcare, compassion, understanding, safety & Trusting Women.”

The Striking Out star urged Irish people to make sure registered to vote, either way.

“For me, reading accounts of many doctors and obstetricians saying how it has and is putting women at risk and in danger and how it is as it stands is exporting what is already here. For compassion in crisis.”

“Either way, register before May 8th #togetherforyes,” the actress added.

Ireland will take to the polls to vote on the 8th Amendment on May 25.
