Oct 31, 2017
A majority of people would support abortion on demand, a poll commissioned by Amnesty International and published on Wednesday has found.
The Red C Poll of 1,000 adults, conducted by telephone between October 16th and 19th, found that 60 per cent of people believe women should have abortion on demand, either outright or within gestational limits.
Its findings, said executive director of Amnesty International Ireland Colm O’Gorman, show the public strongly support “women making their own decisions about their pregnancies”.
