Courageous use of social media by @TwoWomenTravel #RepealThe8th

It speaks volumes that the Guardian had this story online an hour before the Indo.

An Irish woman who is live-tweeting her trip to Great Britain to obtain an abortion has thanked prime minister Enda Kenny for forcing her to “hit the road”.

The woman and a friend left Ireland at about dawn on Saturday, documenting their journey via the handle @TwoWomenTravel from 5am BST.

They described their mission: “Two women, one procedure, 48 hours away from home.”

We wish them all the best on their extremely brave journey.
