summary
This edited publication will provide key reflections and scholarship on the Irish abortion regime generated in the period between the X case, 1992 and Savita Halapanavar, 2012 as the 21st anniversary of the X case judgement is marked in 2013. The ideas generated by: the reflections from activist and scholarship perspectives; from research with Irish women including those seeking abortion; and from new conceptual and theoretical insights and developments into the abortion debate, will constitute a resource for those currently advancing legal change to give women access to abortion in Ireland. In addition it will speak to those interested in the abortion debate more broadly within Ireland and internationally.
