Doctors should be allowed to prescribe abortion pills if Ireland is to avoid the “pitfalls” of British abortion law, an Oireachtas committee will be told.
The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), which runs abortion clinics in the UK, will tell 21 members of the abortion committee today that Ireland should not copy certain aspects of the law in Britain if it decides to bring in legislation of its own.
