The health service is working with websites that sell abortion pills to find out how many Irish women are illegally terminating pregnancies.
Women on Web, a website that sells the pills to countries where abortion is restricted, has agreed to share data with the HSE. The health service is also approaching other abortion pill providers with a request to share information.
It is understood that the data will reveal only the number of women buying the drugs and no personal details.
