Irish campaigners in abortion referendum vie for online impact

Irish campaigners in abortion referendum vie for online impactLeading Irish actors have urged voters in a video posted online Sunday to legalise abortion in the country, as campaigning intensifies ahead of a referendum later this month on the issue. The black-and-white video features an ensemble of screen stars voicing their opposition to laws making abortion illegal in Ireland unless there is a real and substantial risk to the life of the mother. “In Ireland today”, begins “Game of Thrones” actor Liam Cunningham, “if the woman sitting next to you is pregnant” continues local TV star Peter McDonald, “she does not have full rights over her own body” adds Owen McDonnell, famous for playing a fictional police sergeant on Irish TV.
