(en) Ireland, WSM* - X-case legislation looking like a step backwards for women's rights

Date Thu, 02 May 2013 09:19:58 +0200


The WSM has always argued that the X-Case legislation was not enough but even so we were shocked to finally see the details of the bill Fine Gael and Labour are preparing. We expected it to be a small but almost insignificant step foward. Instead there is a clear danger that women with unwanted pregnancies will be worse off than before if the final bill resembles what has been presented so far. --- Three of the key problems are ---women will be forced prove they are suicidal to 3 doctors and it appears these doctors must all agree with each other or the women will have to appeal to another 3. ---- Women who choose abortion in Ireland trhought the use of pills ordered onliine will face 14 years in prison. ---- there are provisions for other people to be able to take court cases to try and stop a women having an abortion

Our position remains that any women who wishes and abortion should be able to obtain one on request as part of a free health service.
