Pro-choice campaigners have a serious message in their fight for reproductive rights. But a group of expats in Berlin is aiming to provide some light relief on the issue of abortion by inviting people to party together.
The Berlin-Ireland Pro-Choice Solidarity group is trying to remove the stigma of abortion, raise funds for women in need and highlight the upcoming Irish referendum on abortion laws at the fundraiser on Friday April 6th.
The referendum on repealing article 40.3.3, known as the eighth amendment, takes place on May 25th. The amendment, which has been in place since 1983, bans abortion even in cases of rape or where a fetus has a fatal abnormality.
If Ireland votes in favor of repeal, the government has said it will introduce legislation permitting unrestricted abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. [ ]
Plugged In For Repeal, billed as a night of female and non-binary fronted Irish and Polish live music, spoken word and dancing in solidarity with the fight for reproductive rights in Ireland, will take place at Bei Ruth in Neukölln from 8pm.
Money raised will go to charities such as the Abortion Support Network, which provides support to women from Ireland and Northern Ireland affected by restrictive abortion laws.

We like to keep it upbeat and have fun, because abortion is quite a taboo and stigmatized subject. We did an event two years ago in Bei Ruth and we called it Thank God For Abortion, because a performer from New York was over [here] and that was her project.Dervla OMalley, co-founder of Berlin-Ireland Pro-Choice, speaks. Really shows the character of these kind of people.
Total scum. More interested in vacuuming their wombs out than defending their civilization.
Irish women are murdering Irish babies.
Patrick would heartbroken.
Wouldn’t surprise me if he would have pronounced a curse on Ireland if he were around today.
Something like his “Letter to the Soldiers of Coroticus”.
