The Irish Catholic Bishops’ council are making movements to stop abortions from being carried out in Catholic-operated hospitals across the country.
The guidelines would be in direct contradiction of incoming laws that will legalise abortion in the state after May's historic vote.
The Code of Ethical Standards for Healthcare, which has been published by the religious group, and currently available in Veritas stores, also forbids gender reassignment surgeries.
