Government may not be able ‘to pass abortion legislation’
Simon Harris says any reforms after Eighth Amendment vote could be disrupted by an election
April 1, 2018
Minister for Health Simon Harris has said he cannot guarantee that legislation allowing for abortion would be passed by the current Government in the event the Eighth Amendment is repealed.
A referendum on repealing Article 40.3.3, also known as the Eighth Amendment, is to take place on May 25th. The Amendment gives an equal right to life to the mother and the unborn.
