Irish abortion provider calls for abortion up to birthFollow @KnightsTempOrg
A major abortion provider has said that abortion should be available up to birth in Ireland ahead of a review of the Irish abortion law.
Niall Behan, chief executive of the Irish Family Planning Association (IFPA), a major abortion provider in Ireland, said that the current 12-week limit for abortion is “rigid” and that abortion should be available up to birth.
He said “Our experience reflects World Health Organisation (WHO) guidance, which is clear that gestational limits cause harm and should be removed”.
Following the repeal of the Eighth Amendment in 2018, which had granted protections for unborn children in Ireland, abortion was made legal.
Currently, the Department of Health in Ireland is undertaking a review of the Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy Act 2018.
Thousands of babies have already died in Ireland following the repeal of the Eight Amendment, sadly this does not appear to be enough for abortion campaigners in Ireland.
