Film and Discussion
Informing Choices NI
For over 50 years, the social understanding in Northern Ireland has been that women have needed to travel in order to access abortion. Following the decriminalisation of abortion, this is changing. Big Sexy Talk host Ruairi Rowan will join fellow ICNI staff members to reflect upon these changes and discuss how abortion is perceived by women and society in 2023. There will also be opportunities to ask questions.
CHAIR Ruairi Rowan, Director of Advocacy and Policy
SPEAKERS Roisin Flanagan, Speakeasy Project Officer / Helpline Operator
Carrie Montgomery, Counselling Services Coordinator
In 1963, student Anne has a bright future ahead of her, but her dreams of finishing her studies are shattered when she becomes pregnant. As her final exams approach, she decides to take matters into her own hands. A true story about life during times when abortion was not just illegal but also widely seen as a terrible immoral choice, and how those stigmas are sadly often internalized, causing pain and trauma long afterward.
