  • All News Items- Ireland’s appearance before the UN Human Rights Committee on International Convention on Civil and Political Rights 14 – 15 July 2014
    mean that a person aged 16 or 17 years may with parent guardian consent apply for a Court order exempting them from that requirement the application by that 16 or 17 year old will be accompanied by confirmation from the treating physician and an independent physician that the person is sufficiently mature to make the application There have been a number of significant recent developments in relation to access to lawful termination of pregnancy in Ireland The Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act 2013 has been enacted to regulate access to lawful termination in accordance with the X case and the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights in the A B and C v Ireland case The 2013 Act followed extensive consultation with stakeholders and detailed examination in parliament Article 40 3 3 of the Constitution as interpreted by the Supreme Court in Attorney General v X provides that it is lawful to terminate a pregnancy in Ireland if it is established as a matter of probability that there is a real and substantial risk to the life as distinct from the health of the mother which can only be avoided by a termination of the pregnancy The purpose of the new legislation is to confer procedural rights on a woman who believes she has a life threatening condition so that she can have certainty as to whether she requires this treatment or not The Act upholds the right to life of the unborn where practicable and the right to life of a pregnant woman whose life is threatened by her pregnancy as required by Article 40 3 3 The Act also creates procedures which apply to the lawful termination of pregnancy The objectives of these procedures are firstly to ensure that where lawful termination of pregnancy is under consideration the right to life of the unborn is respected where practicable and secondly to ensure that a woman can ascertain by means of a clear process whether she is entitled to medical treatment to which the Act applies A Guidance Document to assist health professionals in the implementation of the Act has been prepared and will be published very shortly The Guidance Document identifies referral pathways to fulfil the requirement of the Act and other relevant operational matters It brings the necessary clarity for medical professional to implement the revised legislative regime The Act is a very important recent development but I also want to set our position in its historical and constitutional context Abortion has been a highly politicised and divisive issue in Ireland for a number of decades The question of the right to life of the unborn and the extent of that right has been the subject of five constitutional referenda held in 1983 1992 and 2002 The issue of the extent of any entitlement to lawful abortion has been extensively debated in the political sphere Not only has the Irish public and their political representatives considered the domestic legal framework s impact on the availability of abortion but the possible effect of international instruments signed by the State on this question has also been the subject of extensive public debate Thus the issue of abortion arose in the context of the ratification by the State of the Treaty on European Union the Maastricht Treaty and the Treaty of Lisbon Each of these Treaties was voted upon by the Irish people consulted by way of referendum The Government of Ireland negotiated a protocol to the Maastricht Treaty approved by the people by way of Referendum ensuring that nothing in the Treaty on European Union would affect the application in Ireland of Article 40 3 3 of the Constitution The question of abortion also was a factor impacting on the electorate s decision to vote against the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty As a result the Irish Government sought and obtained certain guarantees from the European Council including guarantees to the effect that the Treaty of Lisbon would not impact upon Article 40 3 3 of the Constitution These guarantees contributed to the Yes vote in favour of the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty when the people were again consulted by way of referendum in October 2009 Accordingly the constitutional and legislative framework in Ireland reflects the nuanced and proportionate approach to the considered views of the Irish Electorate on the profound moral question of the extent to which the right to life of the unborn should be protected and balanced against the rights of the mother I want to turn to the dreadful situation of the survivors of symphysiotomy The Government has decided to establish an ex gratia scheme for the survivors The main advantage of this is that it offers a more flexible solution in terms of the mix of pecuniary and non pecuniary elements of any award to applicants This non adversarial approach will also ensure that the women concerned will not have to pursue cases in the High Court or risk the burden of an adverse costs order This seems particularly desirable given that a large percentage of the women are now aged between 75 and 91 years of age I should also say that the women are receiving and will continue to receive a range of health and social care supports from the State These services include the provision of full General Medical Services eligibility on medical grounds independent clinical assessments advice including where requested a home assessment by an occupational therapist or physiotherapist the arrangement of appropriate fast tracked follow up care where possible the provision of counselling physiotherapy and home help services and the arrangement of home modifications where necessary One of the elements of our existing employment equality framework that has come in for criticism is section 37 of Employment Equality Act 1998 Section 37 is the provision that allows religious owned institutions to discriminate against employees or prospective employees if that is necessary to protect the religious ethos of the institution i e a school or hospital
