The Cabinet has approved the bill that will allow for a referendum on the Eight Amendment to be held this May.
Speaking outside Government Buildings earlier today, Minister for Health Simon Harris said that it was appropriate that this decision was taken on International Women’s Day.
The minister also said that repeal was necessary to deliver change and confirmed that said he would be campaigning vigorously.
Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan, Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection Regina Doherty, Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Josepha Madigan and Minister for Education and Skills Richard Bruton also said they would campaign for repeal.
