A Choice For Irish Women

Nancy Nicol

1992, 45:00 minutes, colour, English


A Choice For Irish Women is a a 45 minute documentary which exposes the abortion issue in Ireland.

Through interviews with leading Irish feminists and women throughout Ireland, the tape recounts the impact on Irish women's lives of the 1983 Pro-life Amendment to the Irish constitution. In February 1992, world attention was focused on Ireland, when a High Court judge in Dublin ruled that a pregnant 14 year old girl, a victim of rape, could not escape Ireland's ban on abortion by going to Britain.
Like the Chantal Daigle case in Canada in 1989, this girl's plight put a human face on the experience of countless Irish women. Some 10 Irish women a day travel to Britain and Wales for an abortion.
