Strong religious convictions are no excuse for misrepresenting research

Twenty-one years, two referendums and several needless deaths after the X case, we are only now beginning to put legislation in place for the safety of Irish women; a process that is being delayed by a group of TDs who view their religious convictions (or those of the people they represent) above women’s lives and Irish democracy.

The claim Ireland is abortion-free is nothing more than a sanctimonious myth.
