Anti-abortion protests won’t be allowed within 100 metres of hospitals providing terminations under plans going to Cabinet today

Long-awaited exclusion zone legislation is expected to be passed before the end of the year.

Ireland’s abortion legislation passed at the end of 2018.

It would mean no one could try to influence someone who is seeking a termination of pregnancy within 100 metres of a healthcare setting which provides it including hospitals and GPs

Protests and posters which have also been seen outside the likes of the National Maternity Hospital would also be banned with a sliding scale of punishments starting with a Garda warning and going up to court prosecution.
