The number of Irish women travelling to Britain for an abortion has dropped
According to official figures from the UK Department of Health, six thousand two hundred and seventeen Irish women crossed the sea last year to terminate a pregnancy.
It is a 1.7 per cent drop, compared to the previous year.
This is a very difficult issue for a lot of people. I myself am against abortion as I believe there is always another option but like Sinn Féin I will never vilify a woman who has an abortion.
