94 incidents were reported to the State Claims Agency related to adverse effects of the abortion legislation.
The information came to light this week following a Parliamentary Question from Carol Nolan TD to the Minister For Health.
Commenting on the news, Eilís Mulroy of the Pro Life Campaign said:
“The reply to Deputy Nolan’s query showing that 94 notifications of adverse events arising from abortion have been recorded demonstrates the numerous risks associated with abortion in Ireland.
“Whilst the details of these 94 claims are of yet unknown, the evidence suggests that adverse effects from abortion are happening and are being dealt with quietly behind closed doors. It is more important than ever to sound the alarm on the existence of dangerous side-effects of abortion.
“The Minister for Health has an obligation to disclose the precise details of the adverse events that have occurred in the interests of transparency and ensuring proper oversight of the new abortion law. The Government’s Three Year Review must take an objective look at these events and the other issues that have come to light since the law was introduced”, Ms. Mulroy concluded.
