From 1991 “Censored – Ireland’s Abortion Reality” a booklet produced by The Cork Abortion Information Campaign. The booklet openly defied the censorship of Abortion Information that required a Referendum in 1992 to make Abortion Information Legal. It also gives a History around the issue. Many thanks to the sender.

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.



Dublin Abortion Information Campaign Leaflet -1992 Referendum on Abortion, Travel and Information May 19, 2010

From the 1992 Abortion Referendum a leaflet produced by the Dublin Abortion Information Campaign.
The referendum took place in the aftermath of the X Case. The Leaflet is advertising a Rally and also asking voters to..

VOTE NO to this attempt to reverse the Supreme Court ruling. It allowed a 14-year old girl, pregnant by a rapist, the right to have an abortion rather than face suicide.
The proposed wording would condemn some women to death.
VOTE YES to the right to travel for abortion. 5,000 13TH do each year, but at present they can be stopped.
VOTE YES to allow women information on abortion, and counselling on all the options in a crisis pregnancy.



SPUC leaflet from the 1992 Abortion Referendum September 29, 2009

As the debate over the X case and the right to information gained momentum, SPUC (Society for the Protection of Unborn Children) put this four page leaflet (complete with graph) out regarding Information. The referendum hadn’t yet been announced, but there was undoubtedly going to be one regarding Abortion Information as well as the other issues.
