And recently, several Irish politicians have been seen wearing the same black sweatshirts with the slogan ‘REPEAL’ in white letters.
It’s all for a specific reason - Irish left-wing political party AAA-PBP alliance (Anti-Austerity Alliance–People Before Profit) have been wearing the sweatshirts in Irish parliament to protest for women’s rights to have a legal abortion in Ireland.
A current campaign is urging Ireland’s government to repeal the Eighth Amendment of the Irish constitution, a 1983 law which outlaws abortion in the country - thus the slogan ‘REPEAL’.
Described on its website as “outerwear to give a voice to a hidden problem”, the Repeal Project was created by Anna Cosgrave - and all proceeds from the clothes go to the Abortion Rights Campaign Ireland.
According to the UK Department of Health, just more than nine Irish women a day travelled to the UK to access abortion services in 2015.
This is an underestimation too, since many women won’t provide their Irish addresses at UK abortion clinics for confidentiality reasons.
The sweatshirts are currently sold out, but keep an eye on their website.
