Reilly urged to face Seanad on 'abortion advice'

HEALTH Minister James Reilly hasbeen urged to appear before the Seanad over the controversy surrounding advice on abortion given by staff at some state-funded pregnancy counselling services.

It follows demands for an independent investigation after the Irish Independent revealed staff at some clinics were breaking the law.

Some of the advice they gave was illegal, according to a leading lawyer, and some was medically dangerous, a doctor said.

Senator Ronan Mullen called on the minister to answer questions before the Seanad. He criticised Seanad leader Senator Maurice Cummins for indicating he did not plan to request the minister to appear.
