The Oireachtas Committee tasked with outlining recommendations for a referendum on the Eight Amendment has published its final report today.
Calling for a repeal of the Eighth Amendment, the committee recommends allowing terminations without restriction up to 12 weeks into the pregnancy.
In the case of fatal foetal abnormality and when there is a serious risk to the health of the mother, the committee also recommends abortions should be allowed without term limits.
Furthermore, the committee is also calling for improvement in sexual health and relationship education in schools, colleges and youth groups across the the country, as well advances in women's healthcare.
A referendum on the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution is due to take place in May.
