THE CITIZENS’ ASSEMBLY has recommended that abortion should be legal without restriction up to 12 weeks of pregnancy.In a vote this afternoon, the members were asked whether women should be allowed access to termination without restriction.In their options, the members had a number of different options in relation to gestational term limits.After the votes were counted, the largest vote (48%) was for up to 12 weeks gestation.Out of the 87 valid votes cast, 29 people (36%) said terminations should not be available without restriction.In total, members voted on 13 reasons for which they feel a termination should be lawful.Results on reason 13— Rónán Duffy (@ronanduffy_) April 23, 2017
