Ireland to legislate for life-saving abortions

Published: 12.18.12, 22:45 / Israel News

Ireland's government says it will draft a new law spelling out the right of women to receive abortions in cases where the pregnancy poses a risk to their lives – including from a woman's own threats to commit suicide.


For two decades, successive governments have resisted passing any law in support of a 1992 Supreme Court judgment that such abortions should be legal in Ireland. (Reuters)
