The British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran can’t laugh that his song ‘Small Bump’ by opponents of abortion in Ireland is used to campaign for a forthcoming referendum. ‘This is my song, not at all.’

At a recent public meeting of supporters of strict abortion laws in the city centre of Dublin was the song ‘Small Bump’ by Ed Sheeran played. The song has Sheeran the a unborn baby in the fifth month of pregnancy.
Sheeran sings:”You’re just a small bump unknown, you’ll grow into your skin/With a smile like hers and a dimple beneath your chin/Finger nails the size of a half grain of rice, and eyelids closed to be soon opened wide/ A small bump, in four months you’ll open your eyes.’
After the wildly popular singer told him that the song was played by the proponents of the strict abortuswetten, saw the singer being forced through Instagram, a communication to the door to let go.
“I think it’s important to let you know that I do not have permission to have given, and that my song is not about that,” she said.

After it was revealed that a lot of propaganda around the referendum on Facebook turned out to be paid from abroad, which is in conflict with the kieswetgeving of Ireland, left the socialenetwerksite know that all those ads would block.
