64% Support Abortion in Ireland

A large survey by ESRI/RCSI research, the Irish Study of Sexual Health and Relationships, and released in October has found that 64% of the population believes that abortion is permissable in at least some circumstances, in comparison to 36% who believe that abortion is wrong in all circumstances. Younger people and those who identify as more religious tend to view abortion as always wrong.

Only 9% believe that the use of emergency contraception is always wrong.
