The Minister for Health has put forward an amendment to the Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy Bill allowing a second practitioner to carry out an abortion procedure if the first practitioner is unavailable.
The amendment relates to the three day wait period, which allows for 72 hours between a woman's first visit and the second visit.
