25.3.2022 – Senator Mullen calls on Minister Donnelly to clarify that submissions to Three-Year-Review will not be thrown out for freely expressing views on abortion law

In the Seanad yesterday, Senator Rónán Mullen criticised the rigid and narrow focus that the Government set out for the Three-Year Review of the abortion law.

Senator Mullen said he had been contacted by several constituents in recent days who expressed concerns about the limited scope offered in the Department of Health submission questionnaire for members of the public to freely make their views known with regard to the abortion law and its operation. Senator Mullen called on the Minister for Health to clarify that submissions to the Three-Year-Review will be accepted in free form and to make clear that members of the public are also free to make whatever points they wish about the law without falling foul of the process.
