We believe that the issue of abortion in Ireland must be addressed politically, and no longer swept under the carpet. We call on the Government to:
- Introduce legislation to make provision for abortion in Ireland were there is a substantial risk to the life of the woman, including the risk of suicide, as upheld by the ‘X’ case ruling.
- Ensure that abortion is provided for in such cases.
- Address the issue of abortion in the longer term, leading to the repeal of anti-abortion legislation and Article 40.3.3. of the Irish Constitution (Anti-Choice amendment).
Ensure that abortion provision in Ireland is accessible to all women on an equitable basis.
