Ireland's government will give voters their first chance in 35 years to decide whether to repeal the country's restrictive abortion laws, Prime Minister Leo Varadkar announced on Monday.
This includes the thousands of women who travel from Ireland to England in order to access abortion.
There was also a vote a year ago by the Citizens Assembly, a public forum which advises the Irish government, resulting in 87% in favour of changing abortion laws.
Abortion is already permitted in Ireland when a women's health or life is in danger, and some Irish women travel to the United Kingdom for abortions.

Pregnancies as a result of rape and incest are now not allowed to be aborted, nor is an abortion permitted if there is a fatal foetal abnormality.
