Leitrim abortion campaign group says there are problems with provision of services

A Leitrim abortion campaign group is outlining what it says are problems with the provision of services a year after the referendum was passed.

Leitrim Abortion Rights Campaign claims the three-day waiting period is unnecessary and that there are problems with definitions of terms such as ‘serious risk to health’.

It also claims there is difficulties with definitions and diagnoses of fetal abnormalities as well as what it says is the patchy nature of abortion provision.

Joanne Neary, of Leitrim Abortion Rights Campaign, says that while doctors are willing to provide the service, some do not want to put their names to it.
