The referendum on the 8th Amendment has been at the forefront of public consciousness for months, with debate intensifying as polling day draws ever nearer.

Regardless of your stance on the issue, most of us assume that everyone will fulfill their civic duty by voting on May 25th, but unfortunately that’s not the case – something Graham Linehan has addressed in a series of recent tweets.

Reaching out to anyone who doesn’t intend to vote next Friday, the Fr Ted creator reminded them of the implications of that decision.

If you’re thinking of abstaining for whatever reason, and the No vote wins, you’re effectively complicit in the continuing insult to Irish women that is the eighth amendment

Graham, who has been vocal on his stance on the matter, went on to remind followers what a Yes vote will actually mean for women and girls in Ireland.

Remember, you’re not voting for *more* abortions. You’re voting for *safe* abortions.

Graham’s message concluded with a reminder that voting to remove State intervention from a woman’s decision-making process will be testament to the trust you have in Ireland’s women and girls.

Graham’s tweets have been met with hundreds of likes and retweets.
