Anti-abortion TDs from different parties are discussing working together to oppose the removal of the Eighth Amendment from the Constitution.
A number of concerned deputies consulted this week before agreeing to vote in the Dáil against a proposal to hold a referendum on abortion.
Several Fianna Fail TDs privately confirmed to The Irish Times that there were talks ahead of a series of votes on the Thirty-sixth Amendment of the Constitution Bill.
