Daly and Bacik for pro-choice protest march

Politicians and pro-choice activists will join forces today to take part in a protest march in Dublin.

Starting at the Spire on O'Connell Street at 2pm, the March for Choice will then travel to Merrion Square.

TD Clare Daly, Senator Ivana Bacik and Mara Clarke from the Abortion Support Network will attend.

Sinead Redmond, from March for Choice, said: "For too long abortion has been something only spoken about in a whisper in this country, so strong is the stigma surrounding the issue.

"The march will be a space for people to celebrate their support for women's reproductive health and rights and where they can speak up and speak out without fear."
