For the 12 people travelling out of the country for abortions today. And the 12 tomorrow. And the 12 the day after.
For the right to be treated like human beings, not incubators.
For everyone who has been silenced.
For everyone who made that journey alone because they couldn’t afford to have someone by their side.
For everyone who made that journey alone because there was nobody they felt safe to tell.
For every non-citizen who has no way out of the country, and no way out of their pregnancies.
For every child growing up in this country who deserves better than all of this.
For Savita, and everyone like her.
Because this country values a days-old blastocyst more than a woman or child.
