Needs of despairing women ignored – lives will be put at risk
Expert Group recommendations ignored
Commenting on the government’s draft bill on abortion, Clare Daly TD and Joan Collins TD called for changes to deal with shortcomings in the Bill:
Clare Daly said:
“Today, May Day, when women have fought for their rights as workers, we are still fighting for our rights as women. I welcome the publication of the government’s proposals for minimal legislation on abortion, but it contains restrictions that will continue to put women’s lives at risk.
On May Day Clare questioned the Taoiseach about the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill.
Clare questions the Government on their intentions to introduce pro-choice legislation in light of the conclusion of the inquest into the death of Savita Halappanavar.
