Fianna Fáil delegates reject calls to change the Constitution on abortion
Saturday 14 October 2017
Fianna Fáil members have overwhelmingly backed a motion urging opposition to changing the Eight Amendment to the Constitution which bans abortion.
Delegates at the party’s Ard Fheis voted by three to one to back a motion from Kildare North constituency urging the party “to oppose any attempt to diminish the constitutional rights of the unborn”.
A second motion from the party’s London branch – backing a “woman’s right to choose” was also heavily defeated.
