Minister for Health Simon Harris is to ask the Cabinet to allow for State funding of the cost of care for women seeking a termination of their pregnancy, as part of providing abortion services.
The Minister will bring the heads of the Health (Regulation of the Termination of Pregnancy) Bill to this morning’s Cabinet meeting, which will legalise access to abortions in certain circumstances.
