Ireland introduces legal abortion services
As of Tuesday it is again legal for women in Ireland to seek to terminate their pregnancies following last year's referendum.
Tuesday 01 January 2019
Ireland has introduced its first abortion services today following a 2018 referendum decision to liberalise the country's ban on terminating pregnancies.
Laws were quickly passed following the referendum to ensure that as of midnight on Tuesday, the country's national health service was able to offer terminations free of charge.
