SterlingThe Abortion Rights Campaign Ireland are receiving funds from abroad from a group called Repeal the 8th London a UK based organisation.

The Repeal the 8th London on it’s own page described itself as “the London branch of the Abortion Rights Campaign”. It is clearly stated on this page that the function of this London branch of the Abortion Rights Campaign is to “bring people in London together to campaign for the repeal of the 8th amendment from the Irish Constitution, and for free, safe and legal abortion”. 

This UK-based organisation is also part of the Coalition to Repeal the 8th Amendment and according to its website the purpose of this Repeal the 8th London is to fund-raise to discharge the costs of such a campaign in Ireland.

No doubt this foreign funding will be subject of a referral to the Standards in Public Office Commission. The law on his area is set out here.
