Healy Eames using rarely-used mechanism to make Seanad vote on opposing abortion bill

SENATOR FIDELMA HEALY-EAMES has tabled an amendment to be heard today on the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill 2013 opposition to the principles of the Bill.
The Reasoned Amendment to the Motion for the second stage involves “a little-used mechanism” which means the amendment will be voted on first, she said.
Healy Eames noted that senators Feargal Quinn and Mary Anne O’Brien had agreed to second the Amendment, adding that she believed “it is important to continue to oppose the flawed grounds on which the Bill is based”.
