Almost 12 hours have been set aside over the next two days in an attempt to pass a landmark bill legalising abortion in Ireland.
Fianna Fáil has given up its private members slot to try to make sure the bill passes in time for legal abortion services to be available in Ireland by next month. The bill could be through the Dáil by tomorrow night.
