Minister for Health Dr James Reilly has said that it is “never going to be the case” that six consultants “either simultaneously or individually” will review pregnant women who are suicidal and want an abortion.
Reports suggesting a new law on abortion could require two obstetricians and four psychiatrists, one of whom must be a perinatal psychiatrist, to assess the suicidal risk of pregnant women was “completely unworkable”, said Dr Anthony McCarthy of Holles Street maternity hospital. Dr Reilly he told reporters this morning
Dr Reilly said after he brings the heads of the bill to Government, they will go to the Oireachtas committee on health where the heads can be discussed before the bill is finally drafted.“The heads of the bill are not finalised. They are still in process. It would not be appropriate for me to discuss what is in them until they have been discussed at the appropriate level which is cabinet,”
So what is going on? Dr Reilly says that an outline of the proposed legislation will be brought to Cabinet tomorrow amid rumours that there are deep devisions between the Coalition parties on what form the abortion legislation should take.“Obviously the drafting of that bill will be very much informed by what happens at the Oireachtas Committee.”
Tonight, Vinny will debate the abortion issue … with what I have little doubt will turn out to be an interesting panel.
