After abortion legislation is passed - should we petition the UK to forbid abortion among Irish citizens

For a long time we have turned a blind eye to the many women who have travelled to Britain for an abortion
But once we have decided how abortion should apply within Ireland, then we are presumably mature enough to make these decisions for ourselves on a permanent and undivided basis
So, should we then ask British legislators to deny the more liberal UK accees to abortion services for Irish citizens?
If we dont, then should we liberalise abortion to match UK abortion laws - which would seem to the the most logical alternative
We should either match UK liberal abortion laws - or pass an Irish abortion law and expect our neighours to honour our views on this moral issue.
What is your view?

I don't think that would be possible. Irish Citizens are entitled to freedom of movement.
freedom of movement yes
but they could easiy deny abortion services to irish citizens
all you should need to do is prove your home address
the Dutch do it now for pot smokers - not that hard

NO ABORTIONS ON DEMAND! 4 SUICIDES IN 4 MILLION UK BIRTHS!! if the law is passed it will be 5000 suicidal women in 1 million births. Once the door is open it's open to all. "Doctor I know this is the 3rd time I've said this but... I will kill myself unless I have an abortion"
reasonable abortion is accepted among normal people,... complications, dying mother, dying fetus etc....

We could petition the UK to forbid abortion among Irish citizens, but they would be under no obligation, either moral or legal, to agree.

It is strange that if we did take the stance that abortion is murder, that we wouldn't petition our neighbours to stop such a barbaric practice. We boycotted places like South Africa for less.

Of course they would be under no obligation to deny abortion to Irish citizens
But in the same way that the UK enforces our tax and VAT laws in a co-operative way, there is no reason to think that they would refuse our request for compliance with our abortion laws
