Family doctors will tell the government they must be allowed decide for themselves whether to offer abortion or not.
The National Association of General Practitioners (NAGP), which says it represents 2,500 of Ireland’s 3,500 GPs, has agreed “overwhelmingly” to demand an “opt-in” approach to providing pregnancy terminations.
It also estimates eight in ten GPs would choose not to opt-in under such a system.
