Isn't it interesting? One of the comments says politicians with religious views don't tend to make decisions based on actual sociological data, which is so true and a real shame.

This is the first study that I have ever seen that cuts through the rhetoric and just presents the data.

'One week after seeking abortion, 97% of women who obtained an abortion felt that abortion was the right decision; 65% of turnaways [women who were denied an abortion] still wished they had been able to obtain an abortion. '

Also interesting reading about the rates of domestic violence women who are turned away from having abortions face.

Hoping Irish pro choice groups can change government policy after recent events.
