Description:
The Bill forms part of the Government's approach to minimising the circumstances in which women seek to have abortions; research, education and counselling will also be put in place towards that end. The Bill's emphasis on counselling arises from the facts, established by research, that the majority of Irish women travelling to the UK for abortions have not received any counselling before travelling, and that, where counselling is received, a considerable number of women decide against abortion. The specific objectives of the Bill are (a) to clarify the legal entitlements and obligations of persons or agencies who give abortion information; (b) to ensure that any doctors, advice agencies etc who provide abortion information to pregnant women do so only in the context of full counselling on all of the available options, without any advocacy or promotion of abortion
