Video: Irish PM Enda Kenny is presented with panties in pro-choice demonstration at party fundraiser

Ireland’s Prime Minister Enda Kenny was presented with a pair of women’s underwear on October 3, when a group of pro-choice demonstrators interrupted a party fundraiser. The fundraiser for Kenny’s Fine Gael party was taking place in London. Demonstrators said that many Irish women seeking to terminate a pregnancy travel to the United Kingdom as the procedure is not readily available in Ireland. The activists, from a London-based women’s rights group, placed a pair of women’s underwear that read “repeal the 8th,” in front of the Prime Minister. The message was a reference to the eighth amendment of the Irish constitution that introduced a constitutional ban on abortion. Credit: YouTube/Speaking of I.M.E.L.D.A
