Irish government approves wording of abortion referendum

The Government will later publish the referendum bill

The Government has signed off on the referendum bill to allow a vote on the 8th Amendment.

Ministers formally approved the referendum bill at a Cabinet meeting at Government Buildings in Dublin.

The Irish government has finalised the wording for the abortion referendum, which is set to be held in May.

"Contrary to some assertions, such provision would not make Ireland an outlier internationally", Mr Harris said.

Zaha was back following a knee injury, but Hodgson did not regret leaving the forward out of the starting XI. Antonio Conte's side is locked with Barcelona at 1-1 heading into the second leg on Wednesday.

The Referendum Commission will be established tomorrow.

Mr Harris outlined the circumstances in which abortion would be legislated for in the case of the Eighth Amendment being repealed.

He observed: "If the goal of the 8th amendment was to stop abortions in Ireland, and to stop Irish women access abortions, it did not achieve that". A dated prescription or requesting the woman return to the doctor in the days following the procedure are the options being examined.

The initial judgment related to an immigration case in which a Nigerian man sought to revoke a 2008 deportation order in proceedings initiated eight years later on the basis that his Irish partner was at that time pregnant with their child.

It follows a unanimous cabinet decision yesterday to approve the wording to be put to the people. The ruling related to a High Court judgement that the unborn have rights guaranteed in the constitution outside of the right to live.

This decision means there will to be no objection or delay to the referendum, which will still go ahead in late May.

He will describe the regime he would aim to bring in in the event of a repeal vote.

"This is a historic and momentous day for Ireland, and for the women of Ireland, in particular", said Ailbhe Smyth, convenor of the Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment. He was joined by four ministers - Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan, Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection Regina Doherty, Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Josepha Madigan and Minister for Education and Skills Richard Bruton - who echoed the sentiment.

Moody's baseline expectation is that Mexico, the US and Canada will reach an agreement and revise the treaty into a NAFTA 2.0. Chile said membership of the new pact will improve access to markets now responsible for 17 percent of its total exports.

"The proposal provides for abortion for any reason in the first three months of pregnancy and up to birth on a ground of health (including mental health) that is undefined and that has led to wide-ranging abortion in countries where it has already been introduced".
