Midi Grrrl is Pro-Choice!

The image below my contribution to a video being made to promote pro-choice visibility in Ireland and remove some of the stigma around the phrase.

It’s about time it is made clear that being pro-choice is not about being pro-abortion, but about enabling women* to make our own decisions about our own bodies and healthcare. It’s so sad that it took the tragic and completely preventable death of Savita Halappanavar to make this a widely talked about topic, but it’s also wonderful that so many people in Ireland are becoming more radical and taking steps to safeguard their health and the health of their sisters, daughters, wives, cousins and friends!

If you are interested in being in the video, mail them at iwanttobeinyourvideo@gmail.com with an image of yourself and the words “I’m pro-choice” on the image. They can be photographs, drawings or mixture between both but should be of decent size so they can be added to the video, which is 16:9 and HD. The deadline is today! Do it, make your own image and raise pro-choice visibility in Ireland!
