Let’s return now to our special series exploring Newstalk’s 20 most influential moments of the past two decades. Every day we are looking back at a different story, chosen by you, the Newstalk listeners.

Eilis Mulroy is a spokesperson for the Pro-Life Campaign and she joined Breakfast to look back.
