Thousands of people followed an Irish woman and her friend on Twitter this weekend as they traveled outside the country to abort the woman’s unborn child.

The two friends sent live messages on social media in an effort to push Ireland to legalize abortion. The unnamed friends used the Twitter account Two Women Travel to share their journey to the abortion clinic and back home again.

Ireland is facing a growing outside push to repeal the Eighth Amendment of its Constitution, which recognizes that unborn babies have a right to life. The push is largely backed by outside money and agencies, including the United Nations. One of the world’s top billionaires, George Soros, is pouring part of his fortune into the pro-life nation in an attempt to legalize abortion, a leaked document from his Open Society Foundations revealed last week.

About 3,000 women travel from Ireland to the UK to have abortions every year, according to the British Department of Health.

The Two Women Travel friends specifically targeted Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who is pro-life. Most of their messages referred to Kenny in some way, often accusing him of forcing women to leave their homes to have abortions.

“We defy the Irish government to ignore us and we defy our Taoiseach [prime minister) Enda Kenny to avoid this conversation,” the Two Women Travel companions wrote. “We have done this to bring to light the reality of our journey to our sisters, mothers brothers, fathers, friends, colleagues and total strangers. All of whom have shown more empathy, support and acceptance than our own government.”

The Two Women Travel friends began posting messages early Saturday morning on Twitter. They described their journey as “Two women, one procedure, 48 hours away from home.” The messages that followed included photos of the airplane and abortion clinic waiting room, a taxi ride and the hotel where the woman spent time recovering before the journey home. They did not mention the reason for the woman’s abortion or any details about the pregnancy or her unborn child.

One tweet mentioned that the women had an unexpected change of venue for the abortion:

Though they do not mention the reason, the change could have to do with a government health agency partially shutting down the Marie Stopes abortion chain in England on Friday due to serious safety concerns. The announcement was unexpected, but the British Care Quality Commission said drastic action was necessary “to make sure patients are protected from potential harm.” Marie Stopes is one of the largest abortion chains in the UK.

After the abortion, the woman’s friend posted the message that she “is out & safe. Procedure was quick & staff very warm.” The next morning, she wrote that her friend “finally slept. Shes konked out.” A photo later on Sunday showed a bloody hotel sheet where the woman bled from her abortion. Their last message concluded with a call to #repealthe8th.

The account drew the attention of several celebrities including comedian James Corden and Ireland Health Minister Simon Harris, who thanked the women for “telling the story of the reality which faces many.”

The fight over abortion laws continues in Ireland. The leaked George Soros-backed plan shows a three-year strategy through 2019 to push abortion on Ireland and other countries that protect unborn babies. One of the Soros group’s strategies is to give money to Amnesty International Ireland, the Abortion Rights Campaign and other pro-abortion groups that will campaign for abortion on Irish soil, Catholic News Agency reports.

Cora Sherlock, deputy chairperson of the Pro-Life Campaign in Ireland and a regular contributor to LifeNews, told CNA: “One thing is certain. Those pushing abortion in Ireland have vast resources that they didn’t have just a few years ago. The money is not being raised from ordinary Irish citizens. That is for sure. The idea that an outside body would fund and organize groups in Ireland to dismantle Ireland’s protection for the unborn child would represent a gross interference and total contempt for the Irish people.”
