Ireland Votes ‘Yes’ to Repeal Abortion Ban

Ireland voted decisively to end their abortion ban on Saturday, highlighting the liberal shift in the country. The ‘yes’ vote repealed the 1983 Eighth Amendment of the Constitution which gave equal rights to a fetus and woman and banned abortion under most circumstances. The referendum vote on Friday saw a record 65% turnout.
