Submission to CoE Committee of Ministers on A. B. and C. v. Ireland

22/01/2015 – 07/11/2014 – Amnesty International does not consider that the recent legislative and regulatory changes introduced by the Irish authorities satisfy the European Court of Human Rights’ Grand Chamber judgment in this case, as they do not effectively guarantee women and girls access to those abortion services which are in fact legal. It thus urges the Committee of Ministers to continue monitoring the implementation of A. B. and C. v. Ireland until the judgment is fully implemented.
