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 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.
