Arlette Lyons at the Dail
About 1,500 cases of fatal foetal abnormalities are reported each year in Ireland – 80% of the women travel abroad for early inducement or terminations.
TFMR (Terminations for Medical Reasons) was founded as a support network for mothers who were told their babies would not live outside the womb because of fatal foetal abnormalities.
Under Irish law, terminations are not legal for people in such circumstances and many are given the option to travel by their consultants.
One of the founding members of the group is Arlette Lyons – who had to travel to Liverpool in March 2012 for a termination - and she joins us from the Dail where a vote is taking place in the next hour about Clare Daly’s Bill to make these terminations lawful here.
