District Conversations Podcast [Anna Cosgrave]

In July of last year we caught up with Anna Cosgrave, the leading voice of the Repeal Project, to discuss the movement. Just under a year later we reconnect to see where Ireland stands in regards to Abortion Rights.

 

In 2012 Anna Cosgrave attended a vigil for Savita Halappavanar, the woman who died due to the avoidable circumstances of a septic miscarriage. Unbeknownst to her, the emotion Anna felt after the vigil led her to start one of the most progressive and effective pro-choice movements this country’s seen.

Some months after the project kickstarted, we wanted to see where the movement is today, how she deals with online ‘trolls’ and what’s next for the project.

This is a District Conversation.
