Ireland: She is not a criminal: The impact of Ireland's abortion law: Executive summary
Ireland’s Constitution and abortion legislation result in violations of the fundamental human rights of women and girls. Ireland has one of the world’s most restrictive abortion laws. Women and girls cannot legally have an abortion in Ireland unless there is a risk to their life. And even where that is the case, access is difficult. The barriers and stigma faced by women and girls are documented in this report through personal testimonies that illustrate the devastating impact and stifling effect of Ireland’s ongoing criminalization of abortion.
