#TwoWomenTravel

From Dublin to Liverpool,
From Belfast to London, 
#TwoWomenTravel

From Poland to Germany,
From Malta to Greece, 
#TwoWomenTravel

From El Salvador to Mexico City, 
From Texas to California, 
#TwoWomenTravel

By car,
By bus,
By boat, 
By train and
By plane, 
#TwoWomenTravel

With a cabin size suitcase, 
A change of clothes, 
And some Maxi Pads, 
#TwoWomenTravel

Two Women Travel

Because women are denied basic health care in their own country, 
Because they are out of options,
Because there is no alternative,
#TwoWomenTravel

Because the Church declares it’s a sin,
Because the State declared it illegal,
Because the Doctors declare their ‘conscientious objection’, 
#TwoWomenTravel

Because women are vilified, stigmatised and criminalised, 
#TwoWomenTravel

And these are the lucky ones, 
The ones with access to 
Information, 
Money, 
Time, 
Options,
Freedom,
And a passport, 
That make it possible,
#TwoWomenTravel

Some go alone, 
Many more order pills, 
Some find a ‘back alley’,
Others use a coat hanger or a knitting needle,
Some ‘have accidents’,
And many women die.

Even so, no woman should have to travel.
