Abortion is part of women's healthcare
Sir - Cattle farmers have crisis pregnancies in their herds from time to time. If they decide that they do not want the pregnancy to continue, they call the vet. The vet might administer a drug such as Estrumate to abort the pregnancy.
Crisis over. The farmer breathes a sigh of relief.
Irish women and girls also have unintended pregnancies. If they do not want the pregnancy to continue, they almost never call their GP. If they order abortion drugs online, they face a criminal conviction and a 14-year custodial sentence. So, they do this in secret; alone, with no medical professional caring for them.
