Anti-abortion campaigners call on the government to change the law

Anti-abortion protesters have called on the government to amend Ireland’s abortion law.

The embers of the pro-life campaign published a document they said focused on the government’s three-year review of abortion laws.

Speaking at the event outside Leinster House, anti-abortion group spokeswoman Alice Mulroy said: “The silence around the devastating impact of the new abortion law must end.

“After the law was changed in 2019, 13,243 legal abortions were performed in the first two years.

“Right now, women are being kept in the dark about abortion options. They are simply not being informed of other options. This dreadful situation cannot continue.

“Today’s launch is the first step in our campaign to end the silence around the devastating impact of the new abortion law and to ensure that abortion options become a major issue as a three-year review is underway.”

Irish voters voted to repeal the Eighth Amendment in a 2018 referendum, beginning a major liberalization of Ireland’s abortion law and effectively ending the constitutional ban on abortion.
