Showing her support for the Pro-Choice campaign, the former Friends star shared a video urging the public to vote to repeal the 8th Amendment on Friday May 25.

Choosing to let the video speak for itself, the 53-year-old simply captioned her post: “Repeal the Eighth’.

Courteney’s post comes just days after fellow sitcom actress, Sarah Hyland, lent her support to the Yes side, with a lengthier post.

I am a woman. I am Irish. I have a slew of health complications that COULD put me in a situation where I would be forced to make a heartbreaking decision. If I was a resident of Ireland, the laws in place would kill me. I understand this all too well. #repealthe8th @Together4yes

Courteney, who is engaged to Derry-native and Snow Patrol member Johnny McDaid, has attracted considerable attention from the Irish public, with thousands liking and retweeting the star’s sentiments.

And with Snow Patrol frontman, Gary Lightbody, calling for a Yes vote in the referendum, it wasn’t long before some spotted an opportunity for a Pro-Choice campaign track.
