A number of deputies who campaigned for a No vote in the recent abortion referendum have accused the Minister for Health of failing to engage meaningfully with them over the Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy Bill.
Independent deputies Mattie McGrath, Michael Collins, Carol Nolan, Peter Fitzpatrick and Danny Healy-Rae said that while the public voted to remove the Eighth Amendment from the Constitution, they did not vote in favour of the Bill in its current form.
