The eighth amendment makes abortion illegal in Ireland except where there is a substantial risk to the life of the mother.

Pink shared a photo of a Together for Yes badge with the caption: 'IRELAND: #repealthe8th, #togetherforyes.'

She also included a heart emoji.

Pink's post was shared one hour ago and at the time of writing had already garnered over 30,000 likes.

In 2015, the What About Us singer announced that she was standing with reproductive healthcare organisation, Planned Parenthood.

The group, who provide women in the US with many services including abortion, contraceptives, and family planning information, were facing government funding cuts due to pushback by the Republic party.

At the time, Pink tweeted: "Do these Rep. hopefuls plan on visiting every town in America handing out pamphlets, hugs, life saving info +and screening?! What's their plan?"

Pink has two children - Willow Sage Hart and Jameson Moon Hart.

The singer last year revealed that she had decided to raise her kids gender neutral so they could grow up in a "label-less" household.

Ireland's referendum on the eight amendment takes place this Friday, May 25.

Polls open at 7am.
