Ireland: Number of Abortions in 2023 Went Over 10K for the First Time

It’s not the immigrants that are having the abortions, Joe.

Irish Central:

More than 10,000 abortions were carried out in Ireland in 2023, according to a new report from the Department of Health.

The report detailed that there were 10,033 abortions carried out in Ireland last year, a significant rise from the 8,156 terminations carried out in 2022.

The abortions were carried out under the Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Act 2018, which came into effect following Ireland’s historic referendum to legalize abortion in 2018.

Of the 10,033 abortions carried out last year, 21 were carried out due to a risk to life or health of the mother, while seven were carried out because there was a risk to life or health in an emergency situation.

A further 129 terminations were carried out due to a fatal fetal abnormality, while 9,876 abortions were carried out during early pregnancy.

Under Irish law, pregnancies can be terminated without restriction within the first 12 weeks, while a termination can be carried out within 28 days of the birth when there is a risk to the life of the pregnant woman. Terminations can also be carried out within 28 days when there is a risk of causing serious harm to the health of the pregnant woman or when there is a condition present that is likely to lead to the death of the fetus.

It was in Ireland’s Constitution that abortion was illegal until 2018.

Can you imagine that these Irish want to talk about how they “pulled themselves out of poverty” when they literally did nothing but become a pirate-style tax haven for American corporations – and then those corporations took over their government and started dictating social norms?

The Irish will say “we brought ourselves out of poverty.”

Well, how’d you do that, paddy?
