Greens Party welcomes Supreme Court ruling

7th March 2018

The Green Party today welcomed the ruling by the Supreme Court that the rights of the unborn in the constitution do not extend beyond those expressed in the 8th Amendment.
Speaking in response to the ruling, Green Party Leader Eamon Ryan TD said: “We welcome the Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling today, which offers real clarity, and paves the way for a referendum on the 8th Amendment in May.
“We look forward to seeing the Government’s legislation later this week, and to the debate in the Dáil on Friday.”
