Min­is­ter claims de­bate ‘marred by mis­in­for­ma­tion’

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS -

MORE than 1,000 doc­tors signed a dec­la­ra­tion pledg­ing their sup­port for a Yes vote in the ref­er­en­dum at an event in Dublin yes­ter­day.

Mon­aghan GP Dr Ross Kelly said: ‘The law forces us to turn our back on them to the point where they of­ten don’t in­volve us. Or you see a wo­man for a first preg­nancy visit and then you never see her again.’

The event was at­tended by Min­is­ter for Health Si­mon Har­ris, who later also joined a cross-party To­gether For Yes event at Buswells Ho­tel which was also at­tended by Labour TD and for­mer tá­naiste Joan Bur­ton.

Mr Har­ris yes­ter­day said that the de­bate sur­round­ing the ref­er­en­dum has been ‘marred by mis­in­for­ma­tion’.
