May 20 2018
There are serious fears in Cabinet that pro-life TDs will move to prevent abortion legislation being enacted before the next general election if the referendum passes next week.
The Government is eager to pass the new law before the country next goes to the polls but there are serious concerns that filibustering by anti-abortion TDs will prevent plans for an early election.
