Minister for Health Simon Harris argued that the public did not “vote for abortion in all circumstances” earlier this year as he resisted calls for all regulations surrounding the termination of pregnancy not to carry a criminal sanction if breached.
The Minister was speaking as the Oireachtas Health Committee debated some of the 180 proposed amendments to the Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Bill 2018 put forward by pro-choice and anti-abortion TDs.
