Government says it will OK abor­tion law

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

Ire­land’s government pledged Tues­day to pass a law soon that will al­low women to re­ceive abor­tions if con­tin­ued preg­nancy threat­ens their lives — in­clud­ing from their own threats to com­mit sui­cide if de­nied one. The an­nounce­ment comes af­ter decades of in­ac­tion on abor­tion in Ire­land and just weeks af­ter the pre­dom­i­nantly Catholic coun­try faced in­ter­na­tional crit­i­cism over the death of an In­dian woman hos­pi­tal­ized in Ire­land with an im­mi­nent mis­car­riage.
