Simon Harris has come under pressure from a prominent pro-choice TD to lift strict requirements for women who need abortions.
Kate O’Connell, the Fine Gael TD, has tabled amendments to the health minister’s abortion bill including one that would lift a requirement for women to be examined by a medical professional before they can have a termination.
