PICS: Cabinet meets protester on way into crucial meeting on abortion

Some awkward glances at protester Eamon Reid as members of the Cabinet arrived at Government Buildings this morning.

MEMBERS OF THE Cabinet came face-to-face with a vocal protester outside Government Buildings in Dublin this morning on the way into a crucial meeting on legislation for the X Case.

The Cabinet is meeting today to discuss draft legislation dealing with the Supreme Court ruling in the X Case which made it legal for a woman to have an abortion in circumstances where her life is at risk including the risk of suicide.

The draft heads of the Protection of Maternal Life Bill 2013 are due to go to the Oireachtas Health Committee later this week provided they are approved by Cabinet today.

And there were some strong feelings on display from the protester identified as Eamon Reid from Howth on Merrion Street earlier today:
