NUI Students have massive pro-choice vote in referendum on union policy

Date:

Some great news for International Womens Day. The students of NUI Galway have voted Yes in a pro-choice referendum by close to a massive 70%. The wording (below) was very clear and included a mandate for action. Well done to all who campaigned in this referendum. 

 

Wording that was voted on
Do you agree with the following proposition

That NUI Galway Students' Union adopt a Pro-Choice position, in support of the national campaign for full reproductive rights, which includes a woman's right to abortion, whether elective or medically necessary.

Furthermore, the Students' Union will use every available measure to realise these rights on campus and nationally.

Total poll 3596. 142 spoiled. 3454 valid. 2478 yes. 1118 no
