Pro-choice politicians are starting a campaign to convince Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and Sinn Féin to back a law legalising abortion in Ireland.
Repealing the Eighth Amendment, to allow abortion up to 12 weeks into a pregnancy and lifting sanctions from doctors and women was formally recommended to the government in a report published by an Oireachtas committee yesterday.
