Up to ten anti-abortion TDs have failed in an attempt to make access to terminations more restrictive after their proposals were dismissed as “grotesque” and offensive to women.
A health committee will today finish examining a new bill to allow legal access to abortion for the first time in Ireland. Yesterday, TDs on the committee overwhelmingly voted against measures designed to make terminations harder to access.
