Barry Cowen has become the latest senior Fianna Fáil politician to come out in support of free access to abortion for all women.
Mr Cowen, the party’s spokesman on housing, said that he was in favour of repealing the Eighth Amendment and allowing access to abortion up to 12 weeks. His remarks follow similarly surprising comments from Micheál Martin, the party leader, last week.
