Law on abortion ‘cruel, unfair, and needs to change’
18 Apr 2012
Women forced to have an abortion abroad because their unborn baby had abnormalities will tell politicians today that the law is cruel, unfair, and needs to change.
Four women have gone public on their situation to highlight what they believe many ordinary women like them endure in silence.
The women will meet TDs in Leinster House today as the Dáil debates a private members' bill on implementing the X case ruling.
They also hope to meet with the 14-member expert group that is studying options on how to implement a European Court of Human Rights ruling.
