The radio DJ shared her story of travelling for an abortion during the show’s referendum debate, and was reduced to tears after being rebuked by debater Senator Ronan Mullen.

I thought long and hard about what I did and the decision I made was the right decision for me and I should have been looked after in my own country.”

Now, she can add actor Russel Crowe to her list of fans.

Crowe said:

I have two beautiful sons . I wasn’t lucky enough to have a daughter. If I had, I’d wish her to have courage like yours. Nobody’s daughter should ever be told she doesn’t have authority over her own body.
This video is the beginning and the end of the debate. #yes
