The Chair of Kerry for Choice has praised the two women who live-tweeted their journey to an abortion centre.
Paula Dennan says Two Women Travel were incredibly brave in documenting their experience during their trip to the UK.
The women, via a twitter account, tweeted their journey to the UK over the weekend, where one of the women had an abortion.
Ms Dennan says the women’s bravery broke down the barrier of silence and showed the reality for thousands of Irish women who were forced to leave the country for an abortion.
Meanwhile, the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, tweeted his thanks to the women for sharing their journey, saying the Citizens’ Assembly on abortion will address the issue in the future.
However, Ms Dennan says the Minister needs to make a date to begin discussions.
