Sinn Féin will not vote against free access to abortion up to 12 weeks, its spokeswoman on health has suggested.
Louise O’Reilly said her party would record its dissent if the Oireachtas committee on the Eighth Amendment recommends legalising terminations for all women. The committee is holding its final meeting on Wednesday when it will hold a vote on what kind of abortion law would follow the repeal of the state’s constitutional ban on abortion in next year’s referendum.
