It is almost a year since Ireland voted to Repeal the 8th amendment and to give women and pregnant people choice.
To celebrate this milestone in our history, this episode of The Nest Podcast is all about busting the myths of abortion.
In January 2019, 950 women in Ireland had a medical abortion.
Emily talks to Goatstown Medical GP, Dr Tiernan Murray, also a member of Doctors for Choice, who tells us about the medication involved, the effects of the medication and what a woman can expect to happen.
We also hear from Rachel, a mum who had 2 medical abortions. Rachel describes her experiences so that women can feel better prepared.

We also remember women in Northern Ireland who have not yet secured the right to a free, safe, legal abortion in their own jurisdiction. They are traveling south for abortion but unfortunately have to pay (in the region of €450). You can support their campaign for free, safe & legal abortion here
