Sinn Féin to amend its stance on abortion
Party will expand position to include protecting the life and health of the mother
Nov 11, 2017
Sinn Féin is to agree an amended position on abortion at its Ard Comhairle next Saturday, allowing for terminations when a mother’s health is at risk.
The party currently advocates for a repeal of the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution and enacting legislation to allow for abortion in cases of rape, incest and fatal foetal abnormality.
