Abortion law change to make doctors report woman’s marital status sought
Amendments to record patient’s previous terminations and ethnicity proposed by anti-abortion TDs
Tue, Dec 4, 2018
A number of anti-abortion TDs have proposed new changes to the abortion legislation which would require a doctor to report whether a woman had any previous abortions, what age and ethnicity she is and whether she is married.
If a medical practitioner does not do this, they could be fined or jailed for up to five years.
