Ireland: Serious flaws identified in abortion law review report require urgent Government action

“In response to the publication today of the three-year review of Ireland’s 2018 abortion law, Amnesty International said that, while nearly 18,000 pregnant people were able to access legal abortion care since the law came into operation in 2019, serious gaps and barriers were revealed and must be addressed urgently by the Government. Amnesty International welcomed the report’s recommending decriminalisation of healthcare professionals and says the Oireachtas health committee must now treat abortion as the healthcare service it is and address the gaps in law highlighted by this review.”
