Some Dublin residents said Friday's vote has nothing to do with a woman's right to decide about her body, with religion or with Ireland's past cruel treatment of women; it is about protecting the rights of the most vulnerable.
Ireland's referendum on abortion is being watched closely by Irish expatriates in Australia, many who are frustrated at their inability to vote.
Abortion has always been banned in Ireland.
The "right to life of the unborn" was enshrined in the Irish Constitution when the Eighth Amendment was added after a referendum in 1983. But the truth is the change is not really so sudden.
In Ireland, people are especially happy about the victory. "If there is a "Yes" vote, Ireland will still be the same place, just a place that is a little bit more compassionate, a little kinder and a little more understanding that it has been".

The Iona Institute's David Quinn, a prominent No campaigner and religious commentator, said in the wake of the results that the Pro-Life movement gained hundreds more young members.
A less known case at the same hospital a month later involved Lupe Royan, 42, from Spain.
At 11 weeks, Royan had some bleeding, and tests determined the fetus had no heartbeat.
Majority Catholic Ireland is now in a heated debate over legalizing pregnancy termination, which is banned under current laws. "The Northern Ireland conflict dynamic means that every policy issue is seen through the prism of the two communities", she said adding that that makes political compromise and traditional governing hard. "It just doesn't suit them to have a baby at this time".
"I'm very surprised", said Theresa Reidy, a professor of politics at the University College Cork who researches referendums.
Following the result in Ireland, focus has now turned to north of the border.
