Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald has asked for a "full, deliberative and frank debate" on the legislation to change Ireland's abortion laws but cautioned against filibustering.
The debate on the Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Bill 2018 resumed this evening. Ms McDonald said "this legislation will require very, very careful thought and deliberation".
