Irish abortion plan 'may be step too far'

  • Taoiseach Leo Varadkar arrives to address the media after the first Cabinet meeting of the New Year at Government Buildings Dublin

"When I know what the question is and and we've decided on what the question is I'll give my views on the issue".

Mr Varadkar said the legislative recommendation from the Oireachtas committee on the Eighth Amendment "went further than many people may have anticipated".

That report recommends abortion without restriction for up to 12 weeks into the pregnancy. So my party, the Fine Gael party, will discuss this at our special parliamentary party meeting next week. He recently told the Irish Independent: "Decisions that I make on this will be ones that allow me to sleep at night and not ones that I will judge on the basis of whether they're popular or not".

The referendum is expected to take place early this summer.

Health Minister Simon Harris will present his plans for a referendum and the new laws that could come in.

K Sivan appointed the chairperson of ISRO
Sivan was the key person to work out the technicalities of sending 104 satellites into orbit in 2017, reported the news channel. He was appointed project director of the Geosynchronous Launch Vehicle project in April 2011 and director LPSC in July 2014.


Some ministers have publicly stated their position while others have not.

Minister Harris, who supports the Committee's recommendations, said that there is very little time to organise a pre-summer referendum.

"I don't believe that this is an issue that should be in our constitution", he said.

However, Minister of State at the Department of Finance Patrick O'Donovan said he had a "different view".

The Taoiseach confirmed before Christmas that all Fine Gael Oireachtas members will have a free vote on any referendum proposal when it goes before the Dáil and Seanad.
