Graphic anti-abortion posters spotted outside Trinity College for the second time this week
The posters can be found outside Trinity College's Nassau Street entrance.
For the second time this week, pro-life activists have taken to Trinity College's campus with graphic posters depicting aborted foetuses.
Two posters were spotted on Tuesday just outside the Nassau Street side entrance of the college, an area with an extremely high footfall of students and workers alike. The same images were also spotted outside the university last Thursday, January 18.
Previously positioning themselves opposite Front Arch, the group are wearing jumpers that say “Reveal”, parodying the similar "Repeal" jumpers worn by those involved in the pro-choice movement.
The group have spent time protesting outside a number of busy spots in Dublin in recent weeks including O’Connell St and outside Leinster House.
People who regularly pass through the busy area are calling for more warning regarding the posters – especially those travelling with children.
Abortion Rights Ireland took to Twitter to warn those in the area of a potential trigger warning upon seeing the graphic images.
**Trigger warning** An anti group is setting up a huge graphic poster outside Dáil Éireann right now. This is going to be extremely upsetting and triggering for many people in the area. Please warn as many people as you can who might be affected and are in the area. Thank you.

When the group protested outside Trinity last week, the college's Students’ Union issued a warning to students from their social media accounts.
*TRIGGER WARNING* there are anti-choice protestors stationed across the road from Front Arch with signs displaying disturbing imagery. They are also wearing t shirts and jumpers which say Repeal. images have potential to upset

As well as this, a number of people have taken to Twitter to alert people of potential trigger warnings and express their disbelief and horror to the graphic nature of the imagery.
Trinity people. Mind yourself walking out the side gates near Dawson street. Anti choice banners with large banners and pictures! Also is this allowed??

TRIGGER WARNING: NASSAU ST
Massively graphic and upsetting images from the anti choice side on posters have made the Nassau st entrance to Trinity College inaccessible without having to see or walk through a crowd of these people. RT to save someone unnecessary distress.

A source has informed us that, upon chatting with a member of An Garda Síochána, they were unformed that "under section ten, they are allowed to do this with images."
