Non-profit women’s health clinics have expressed frustration amid claims that they have been left out of plans to provide access to abortion in Ireland.
The Irish Family Planning Association (IFPA) and the Well Woman Centre have indicated that they have the expertise to provide abortions at up to nine weeks’ gestation. They have not been included, however, in meetings between the Department of Health and medical experts preparing for the legalisation of abortion next January.
