John Crown: I'll urge new law be watertight on suicide concerns

I had some initial misgivings about the structure of the Oireachtas Joint Health Committee session last week. We were charged with the task of hearing testimony and preparing a report for the Health Minister regarding legislation for abortion in Ireland.

The three-day hearings would hear from medical professionals on the first day, legal/constitutional experts on the second and interested parties (religious groups and atheists, organised campaigners for and against liberalised abortion laws) on the third.
