Limerick Senator welcomes safe access to terminations

Limerick Sinn Féin Senator Paul Gavan

LIMERICK Sinn Féin Senator Paul Gavan has congratulated the ‘Together for Safety’ campaign following the passage of the Safe Access to Termination of Pregnancy Bill in the Seanad.

“This Bill ensures that pregnant women will be protected at healthcare settings, and I would urge that it be swiftly passed through the Dáil to complete its passage into law,” Senator Gavan explained.

The cross-party consensus, which includes government Senators, has been very welcome and I would hope that the Bill gets the same support going forward. I am glad that in the absence of legislation coming from the government, that they have thrown their support behind this Bill,” he added.
