  • Irish anti-abortion campaign concedes it has lost referendum

"Her story was one that captured the realities of what the Eighth Amendment meant in a material, tangible way", he said. More than 66 percent of voters wanted an end to the ban.

"I'm especially grateful to the women of Ireland who came forward to provide their personal testimony about the hard times that they endured, the stress and the trauma that they experienced because of the Eighth Amendment", she said.

"I'd like to thank the people of Limerick, they've showed great compassion".

A woman in Ireland celebrates the result of the referendum.

Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, who campaigned to repeal the laws, had called the vote a once-in-a-generation chance and voters responded by turning out in droves. But I believe we have voted today for the next generation. Her father, Andanappa Yalagi, said he has "no words" to express his gratitude for Ireland's "yes" vote.

"The people have spoken", Mr. Varadkar said following Friday's vote.

Together for Yes co-director Orla O'Connor paid tribute to the women and couples "whose own bravery and dignity have moved hearts and changed minds - and given the scale of the victory, changed the country". The strongest backing came from youthful voters - the exit poll says the only age group in which a majority voted "no" were voters who are 65 or older.

Ireland's government will be posed to consider legislation that would permit abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

For decades, the law forced over 3,000 women to travel to Britain each year for terminations and "Yes" campaigners argued that with others now ordering pills illegally online, abortion was already a reality in Ireland.

Ireland's vote will likely put pressure on Northern Ireland to change its abortion laws, too.

"The Irish referendum, if it shows anything that relevant to us, it's that attitudes are changing and people aren't tied down by more moralistic consideration of this issue", he said.

Although the referendum was repealed, abortion won't automatically become legal in Ireland. "We will have a modern constitution for a modern country".

Trump pardons late boxing champion Jack Johnson
Trump last month credited Stallone, the actor who portrayed Rocky Balboa in the iconic film series, for urging Johnson's pardon. The law was passed two years earlier and made it a crime to take a woman across state lines for immoral purposes.

The vote pitted conservative backers of strict abortion laws against those supporting a woman's right to choose.

DUBLIN, Ireland -Early results on Saturday morning are projecting the repeal of the abortion ban in Ireland, a decision pro-life groups are calling tragic and disappointing. "And they are going to change now", a tearful Mellet said at the Royal Dublin Society, where the count took place throughout the day.

Ministers have promised to allow terminations within the first 12 weeks, subject to medical advice and a cooling-off period, and between 12 and 24 weeks in exceptional circumstances.

Constituents gathered at Dublin Castle in the nation's capital, taking a moment to honor Savita Halappanavar, a dentist who died of sepsis in 2012 during a miscarriage, during which she'd asked several times for an abortion (doctors wouldn't administer one as they could still hear a fetal heartbeat).

Varadkar said he'd like to pass legislation for a new abortion law by the end of the year, according to The Guardian.

Sinn Fein's party leaders from both sides of the border held up a placard at Dublin Castle reading: "The North is next".
