Click Here to Listen

Deputy Brid Smith has become the first Irish TD to speak publicly about having an abortion.

The Solidarity -People Before Profit TD spoke about the experience, which took place when she was around 23, during a recording of the Irish Times’ The Women’s Podcast.

During the podcast Deputy Smith said that she just didn’t want to be pregnant.

The theme of the podcast event was ‘the walk (and talk) of shame’ and Smith said that she thought “maybe there was an element of shame that I couldn’t identify” about her abortion.

We spoke Brid today so she could tell you her story.
