The health service is working with websites that sell abortion pills to find out how many Irish women are illegally terminating pregnancies.

The study found that there were 55.7 million abortions every year between 2010 and 2014 worldwide, and of them 17.1 million were unsafe because the woman was taking pills alone or was with a trained helper but using a method of abortion that is no longer considered best practice.
