As members of the Abortion Rights Campaign, Kerry for Choice aspires to be inclusive and representative of varied groups of people affected by the Eighth Amendment. We believe this requires a particular focus on those groups that are disproportionately affected by Ireland’s restrictive abortion laws including women who are marginalised by poverty, racism, immigration status and disability. However, ARC and KfC acknowledge the structural barriers at a societal and organisational level which prevent marginalised groups participation and involvement in ARC and KfC. As a result, ARC and KfC commit to actively address these barriers so as to support the meaningful involvement of people from all socio-economic backgrounds, minority ethnic groups or cultures, including Traveller and Roma, people of colour, the LGBTQI community, sex workers and people with disabilities.
