Crowd gathers outside Dáil for abortion rally

They met as members of the Dáil voted on an abortion bill put forward by Deputy Clare Daly. Also today, members of Youth Defence launched their latest campaign outside Leinster House.

A LARGE GROUP gathered outside the Dáil again this evening calling for legislation for the X Case following the death of Savita Halappanavar.

They gathered as members of the Dáil met to vote on TD Clare Daly’s proposed abortion bill. This is Daly’s second version of the abortion bill, and comes after the first was rejected in April.

The bill was debated for the second night tonight and is currently being voted on. It is anticipated that those taking part in the protest outside the Dáil will stay there until the voting has concluded.

Earlier today, members of the pro-life campaign also gathered outside the Dáil for the launch of their campaign to make sure that Fine Gael ‘keeps its pro-life promise’. Their placards said ‘Every Child Matters – Not to Fine Gael?’
