USI launch poster campaign urging students to get out and vote on May 25
The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) is today launching four new posters as part of the national student-led campaign to remove the Eighth Amendment from the Constitution.
The Students For Choice poster campaign is calling on voters to vote YES ahead of next week's polling day.
Voters will be asked on May 25 to decide if the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution should be replaced with a new provision that allows the Oireachtas to legislate for abortion.

Students support the launch of the Union of Students' Ireland (USI) poster campaign.   

USI president Michael Kerrigan said: “This referendum is not a vote for abortion, because abortion is already happening here in Ireland.
"This vote is about healthcare at home, and providing regulated and safe care for pregnant people without shipping them away in shame across the Irish sea.”

Students support the launch of USI's campaign.

Kerrigan added: “This is our future we’re talking about. We know if people hear the facts, minds will be changed to vote YES for a caring and compassionate Ireland.
"It’s crucial that students get home this weekend to canvass. If you’re studying for exams take an hour or two out of your evening to go knocking on doors. You’re still doing your part if you pick up the phone and talked to some family and friends.”
USI is the national representative body for the 374,000 students in third-level education on the island of Ireland, and is a member of the Together For Yes campaign.
