Sligo one of only two counties without abortion services

Sligo Action for Reproductive Rights Access is highlighting the fact that there are no abortion services yet available in Co. Sligo.

The county is one of two without the services, the other being Carlow.

SARRA set up a stall in Sligo Town at the weekend letting the public know this was the case with many people surprised as they presumed it was available due to the referendum over a year ago.

Currently, women wanting to avail of the services need to travel to Donegal or Roscommon which can be costly and time consuming.

Speaking to OceanFM, spokesperson Peigin Doyle says they have yet to get any real answers from the government.
