Well, this is the fourth #vinb show on Abortion within the past fortnight. At this stage I’m just lost for words …
All women panel.
So, here’s the up to date news:
* the Protection of Life during Pregnancy Bill 2013 outlines the need for three doctors for the decision whether abortion is appropriate in the case of suicidal ideation;
* with a medical emergency, a single doctor is required to certify a termination, while two doctors are required in the case of a non-emergency. A woman can appeal the decisions.
The Bill also highlights other circumstances where a termination is legal. In the case of a physical medical emergency, one doctor is required; with a non-emergency situation, two consultants are required.
