I'll keep it short and sweet. Firstly, I'm very much pro-choice. Now, maybe it's been dealt with before but the current Oireachtas Committee meetings got me wondering, a woman has the right to travel for an abortion, she has the right to abortion information but what happens when a) a woman in, for example, a psychiatric unit is pregnant and wants an abortion, for which as things stand, she has to travel abroad for? Or b) a woman is confined to prison, is pregnant but wants an abortion? What happens in these situations? Are the women simply, literally, forced to term?
