Holohan moves to address concerns about 12-week abortion limit
Doctors fearful of criminalisation as women present at 11 weeks’ gestation
Mon, Jan 28, 2019
The chief medical officer, Tony Holohan, has moved to address concerns about doctors performing terminations beyond the 12-week legal limit.
Abortion up until 12 weeks’ gestation became legal at the start of the month, but concerns have been raised that women who present at 11 weeks’ gestation may take more than a week to complete the procedure.
