Many images of surgical procedures were used during the campaign.

THIS MORNING, IT emerged that Dublin City Council was bombarded with complaints about graphic abortion posters which were erected across the country.

Around 150 letters and emails relating to referendum posters were released to TheJournal.ie under a Freedom of Information request which asked for any related correspondence up until 25 April, a month out from the vote and a few weeks after posters were erected.

Many people took it upon themselves to block what one complainant described as “bloody and graphic images of surgical procedures”.

So this morning, we want to know: Were you offended by graphic abortion posters during the referendum campaign? 


Poll Results:

Yes (7975)

I didn't see them (1081)
