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.

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.
