Irish Catholic hospitals 'will have to perform abortions' - BBC News

Irish hospitals with a Catholic ethos will be expected to carry out abortions when new laws on terminations come into effect, the Irish prime minister has said.

Leo Varadkar said doctors, nurses or midwives could opt out of performing procedures on conscience grounds.

However, entire institutions will not have that option.
