Irish voters set to liberalise abortion laws in landslide

 

Ireland appears to have moved away from its conservative Roman Catholic roots and embraced a more liberal viewpoint as two major exit polls on Friday predicted voters had repealed a constitutional ban on abortion.

The RTE television and Irish Times exit polls are only predictions, with official tallies due Saturday afternoon, local time, but both exit polls suggested an overwhelming victory for abortion rights activists seeking a “yes” vote to change the constitution.
