For many months, Irish Times/Ipsos polls have shown an overwhelming majority of the public are in favour of at least some liberalisation of Ireland’s strict anti-abortion laws. Now a survey of TDs shows these attitudes are reflected in the Dáil.
The Dáil will back a repeal of the Eighth Amendment, which prohibits abortion in almost all cases, by a huge majority, according data compiled by The Irish Times for our Abortion Referendum Tracker.
