Ireland's Indian-origin PM Leo Varadkar campaigns to lift abortion ban

A cross party group of TDs and Senators take part in the Together for Yes billboard launch in Dublin

The text says: "The state acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right". She didn't get the medical treatment she needed because of the eighth amendment.

If Ireland votes "Yes" to repeal the Eighth Amendment, the existing article of the Constitution which was inserted in 1983, and the 1992 additions, will be replaced with this text: "Provision may be made by law for the regulation of termination of pregnancy".

In his statement Saturday, Varadkar acknowledged that those who voted against the repeal likely feel that they no longer recognize their country.

"For Ireland, it's hope for the future", she said of the referendum. Using the hashtag #hometovote, Irish women living all over the world are documenting their journey home to vote "Yes" in the historic referendum.

Mr Harris said he was confident that the legislation would be passed in parliament should people vote Yes on Friday. The Irish government reportedly plans to introduce a new law that would permit abortion without restriction up to 12 weeks into the pregnancy. Her death became a rallying point for a massive outrage in the country over the eighth amendment of the abortion law according to which no women was allowed to have an abortion unless her life was at stake.

"It's a rather incredible situation that we're going into the constitution to remove a right and we're actually going in there to remove the fundamental right to life from all unborn children".

Doherty maintained that making abortion more hard to obtain forced women to think more about their decisions and perhaps to seek help or put a baby up for adoption.

"It is an opportunity for us to change our country".

"Every time an unborn child has his or her life ended in Ireland, we will oppose that, and make our voices known".

Repeal of the amendment has completed a circle of sweeping social reforms in the European Union nation that fly in the face of the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church, from contraception to divorce, and most recently same-sex marriage.

Australian Grandmother Receives Death Penalty For Smuggling Meth
An Australian grandmother has been sentenced to death in Malaysia for attempting to smuggle drugs from Shanghai to Melbourne. She was acquitted after the judge found she was scammed by her online boyfriend and was unaware she was carrying the drugs.

Exit polls released on Saturday showed that it was a landslide victory of almost 70-30, per Vox. Currently, women who are impregnated through rape or incest can not terminate a pregnancy.

Three official investigations found that the 31-year-old died of a blood infection caused by "extremely virulent bacteria", E. coli ESBL.

The Republic has one of the most restrictive abortion regimes in Europe, a legacy of the influence of the Catholic Church and a conservative attitude by generations past towards the matter.

Voters were asked to cast Yes or No vote on a question written on their ballots as to whether or not they agree to legalise abortions in the country.

A huge poster for legalized abortion is seen on a building in downtown Dublin, Ireland, May 25, 2018.

Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said that a "quiet revolution" had taken place, as voters chose to repeal the Eight Amendment.

"We will have a modern constitution for a modern country", said Varadkar, who in 2014 said, "I consider myself to be pro-life in that I accept that the unborn child is a human life with rights".

The campaign is being watched, and sometimes influenced, by anti-abortion groups in the USA and elsewhere. Women are, however, allowed to have abortions overseas.

Irish pop culture stars like U2 and Ed Sheeran were no help, either. Polls had given the pro-repeal "yes" side a small lead, but suggested the contest would be close. Other MPs from all parties have begun pushing for a vote in parliament on the issue and on Saturday the leader of Sinn Fein in Northern Ireland, Michelle O'Neill, held up a sign after the vote count that said: "The North is next".
