From 1991 a leaflet on Abortion Information from SPUC (The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children). Its the final page of the leaflet that is the oddest with a rather unusual graph comparing the number of children born to unmarried mothers to abortions.
From 1992 Progressive Democrats Des O’Malley outlines the partys reasons to vote No on the Abortion Referendum. June 8, 2013
From a 1992 Progressive Democrat leaflet Dessie O’Malley outlines the position of the party regarding the 3 Abortion Referenda to be held on the same day as the General Election. Whilst they asked for a YEs vote for the Right to Travel and Right to Information, they asked for a NO vote on the Abortion issue. Many of the reasons for voting against the Referendum outlined by O’Malley are just as relevant today as they were then.

From the 1992 Abortion Referenda a leaflet from ‘Frontline’ “A Coalition of Organisations dealing with the Issue and Consequences of Unplanned Pregnancy”.
The Coalition consisted of Cherish, Doctors for Freedom of Information, Dublin Well Woman Centre, Irish Family Planning Association, Open Line Counselling, Psychologists for Freedom of Information and The Union of Students of Ireland.
They were urging a No vote in the Abortion Referendum as it was ” a simplistic and ambiguous approach to a complex issue” and were urging a Yes vote for the Right to Travel and Right to Information.
