29 May 2018
The Irish government will examine whether women in Northern Ireland will be able to access abortion services in the Republic of Ireland.
Taoiseach (Irish prime minister) Leo Varadkar said he "imagined" current rules would apply where all Irish citizens across the border could avail of health facilities in the south.
Meanwhile the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) has called for women in Northern Ireland to be given the same access to abortion as in the rest of the UK.
