That abortion decision… better received than I’d have expected December 18, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics.
Pro-choice groups welcomed today’s announcement, but said the government must commit to a timeframe for the introduction of legislation.
In a joint statement, Irish Choice Network, Choice Ireland, Action on X, Galway Pro-Choice, Cork Women’s Right to Choose and Doctors for Choice said the proposed legislation “should only be considered a first step towards liberalising abortion laws in Ireland”.
Probably a good approach given the dynamics at play here. Needless to say the Iona Institute isn’t happy.
