Legislation to provide for termination of pregnancies in the State will be introduced in the Dáil in the first week of October, but a new abortion rights group fears it will "not guarantee equal access to everyone".
On May 25 we will be asked to completely remove the right to life of babies in the womb from the Irish Constitution. Why? To allow the Government to introduce abortion on demand into Irish hospitals and GP clinics. The Government want to legalise unrestricted abortion in the first three months of pregnancy and abortion up to six months on grounds including “mental health”, which in Britain means abortion on demand. Abortion will be allowed up to birth if the baby has a life limiting condition.

On Tuesday evening the Dail voted at second stage on the Protection of Life in Pregnancy Bill (2013). As expected four of our Fine Gael TDs (Peter Matthews, Brian Walsh, Billy Timmins and Terence Flanagan) very courageously voted against the Bill. Next week, I, too will vote against the abortion bill. More FG colleagues are expected to follow in the coming days.
