Irish travelling home for Christmas tweet #Choice4Xmas to highlight journey made by women in Ireland for abortions abroad

IRISH people abroad are tweeting #Choice4Xmas as they travel home for Christmas to highlight the journey made by thousands of women from Ireland every year for abortions. 

The #Choice4Xmas campaign was started on December 15 by the London Irish Abortion Rights Campaign.

The campaign asks those travelling home to take a photo en-route of their luggage, making it clear whether they're in an airport, train station or port, and post it to social media with the hashtag #Choice4Xmas.

Suggested text for the post is: "Travelling home to Ireland and thinking of the 11 women a day who travel to Britain for an abortion #Choice4Xmas #Repealthe8th #Extend1967Act."

The London Irish ARC also asks travellers to check in to the airport or train station to show where people are coming from.
