Ireland goes for a referendum regarding amendment of Abortion Law

Ireland’s abortion laws are anchored in the Eighth Amendment to the country’s Constitution. They are among the most restrictive in Europe, with abortion effectively outlawed in nearly all cases, including rape, incest or crisis pregnancies.

In the referendum on Friday, Irish voters cast ballots on whether to keep or repeal the Eighth Amendment. Repeal would mean that abortion becomes legal throughout the country.
