Every Woman - Launch of NWCI’s Model for Reproductive Healthcare

Join us for the launch of Every Woman - NWCI's Model for Reproductive Healthcare which outlines how we can provide caring, comprehensive reproductive services for all women and girls in Ireland. 

With the launch of Every Woman, we are hoping to build a sensitive and inclusive middle ground that acknowledges people’s experience of pregnancy and family life in all its diversity and complexity. This includes outlining the restrictions that the Constitution currently places on the care of women and girls and how it interferes in the relationship between doctor and patients. 

Our aim is to build consensus and understanding of what reproductive services we need that will enable all women and girls to realise their potential in life. This means facing, with honesty, openness and compassion, complex issues relating to life choices, fertility control and pregnancy care. We invite others who share our hopes and aims to join us in this conversation.

Speakers will include:

  • Gemma Hussey, former Fine Gael Minister and TD 
  • Sonya Lennon, Designer and Entrepreneur 
  • Suzy Byrne, Disability Rights Activist 
  • Alison Cowzer, East Coast Bakehouse and Investor on Dragon's Den 
  • Orla O'Connor, Director, NWCI 

Ellen O'Malley Dunlop, NWCI Chairperson, will chair the event.
