Rural and urban voting intent in the Irish abortion referendum 2018

This statistic illustrates the different voting intentions of rural and urban areas in the Irish Repeal the Eighth Amendment Referendum, due to take place on Friday 25th May 2018. While both urban and rural areas support repealing the amendment, the level of support in urban areas is seven percent higher than in rural areas. The eighth amendment itself limits abortion to cases where the mother's life is at risk, its repeal would give the Irish Parliament the authority to allow abortions in other cases.

Will you vote Yes in favor of removing the 8th Amendment, or will you vote No to keep it?
