Patricia Casey: Vista created by abortion law too cruel and terrible to contemplate

THE Government has announced its intention to legislate for the 'X Case' , which includes suicide risk as grounds for abortion. This is on foot of a judgment delivered 21 years ago that did not involve psychiatric evidence.

It is now providing for psychiatrists to prescribe abortion as a treatment for those who are suicidal in pregnancy. This is unique in the world history of abortion legislation.
