As you may know, the Oireachtas Health Committee has today started three days of public hearings on the Implementation of the Government Decision following the publication of the Expert Group Report into matters relating to A, B, C, vs Ireland. On December 18th 2012, the government announced that it will introduce legislation and regulations to allow for abortion where a woman’s life is at risk, including the threat of suicide.
While the Committee will not hear oral presentations from all interested parties, individuals and groups can still make written submissions to the Committee. These must be submitted firstname.lastname@example.org before 10.00am on Friday, January 11th. Copies of written submissions and transcripts of the hearings will be included in the Committee’s report to Government, once it has completed its deliberations, and the report will be published on the Oireachtas website.
It is extremely important that the views of the majority on this issue are heard so we would encourage you to make a written submission to the Committee. We have attached some guidelines and draft submissions from Action on X, the Irish Choice Network and AIMS Ireland to assist you in this.
Please feel free to circulate this information to other interested groups and individuals.
