Choice for NCAD
The Irish State is an inherently pro-life institution. This leaves people who can become pregnant in a precarious position. Their health, safety, and agency are all compromised by not being able to make very important decisions for themselves.
We believe NCAD Student Union should take a Pro-Choice stance in our constitution, in order to make it clear that the students of NCAD will not accept the Irish government's controlling and entitled attitude towards those people.
We believe the campus should be a safe space for all students, a non-judgemental space where people can access the information necessary to have an abortion if they should need.
Including a Pro-Choice stance in the constitution will cement that the Student Union of this college supports equality, and that the health of all students - both mentally and physically - is a priority.
