Ireland expected to legalise abortion in some cases
Text size Aa Aa

After decades of argument, Ireland’s lawmakers are expected to legalise abortion in limited circumstances today.

It will mean the procedure will be allowed in cases where doctors deem a woman’s life is at risk from a continued pregnancy.

The change to the law follows the death of a woman who was refused an abortion and died from blood poisoning.
