The actress, who rose to fame as Michelle in Derry Girls earlier this year, used her Twitter account to confirm her stance on the matter, and ended her rebuttal with the hashtag, TheNorthIsNext.

Just to be clear, I am not, nor have I ever been paid by any charities to promote the pro choice movement.. I do it because its right! #TheNorthIsNext.

The tweet, which has been met with support, follows a piece written by a pro-life group based in Northern Ireland which accused Jamie-Lee of ‘buying into pro-abortion propaganda’.

In a post published on their website, Precious Life made reference to the fact that the actress played a role in a production exploring the issue of abortion, entitled ‘I Told My Mum I Was Going On An RE Trip’, which was part of series created by Liverpool company, 20 Stories High.

O’Donnell is being paid to advocate for the killing of millions of Irish babies. She is yet another so-called “celebrity” to buy into the pro-abortion propaganda. 

The piece, which is entitled ‘Real Derry Girls are Pro-Life‘ continued:

Real feminists honour the bodies of women and the bodies of the female babies in the womb. Real celebrities use their fame for the good of everyone rather than promoting the mass killing of the most innocent and defenceless in our society.

Jamie-Lee’s co-star, Nicola Coughlan, has also taken exception to the sentiments contained within the piece, and aired her disapproval by re-tweeting the organisation’s post which directed the public to the piece.

“Claiming @JamieLeeOD is being paid by Pro Choice charities is an outright lie, as you well know,” the Galway-native began her tweet.

The actress then encouraged the organisation to remove the piece, saying: “It’s patently untrue and could lead you to face legal action.”

Defending her friend and co-star, Nicola continued:

This article is such a nasty attempt to bully a for a woman expressing her views.
