In uncompromising terms, the Human Rights Committee stated that Ireland should revise its legislation on abortion, including its Constitution, to provide for additional exceptions in cases of rape, incest, serious risks to the health of the mother or fatal foetal abnormality. Stating that Ireland should quickly adopt the Guidance Document to clarify what constitutes a ‚real and substantive risk‘ to the life of the pregnant woman, and Ireland should consider making more information on crisis pregnancy options available through a variety of channels, and ensure that healthcare providers who provide information on safe abortion services abroad are not subject to criminal sanctions.
