Harris dismisses Coveney’s claims of scans before terminations
Minister for Health insisted any need for scan will be based on doctors’ discretion
March 29, 2018
The Government has distanced itself from claims by Tánaiste Simon Coveney that women seeking a termination after nine weeks of pregnancy will have to undergo a scan.
Mr Coveney had outlined his expectation that the operation of an abortion regime would be coupled with medical guidelines and these would include a requirement for a scan between nine and 12 weeks of pregnancy.
