« BackHealth Minister will consider regulating pregnancy counselling services

simon harrisThe Health Minister says he will consider regulating pregnancy counselling services here.
It’s after one Dublin service told women that abortion can lead to an increased risk of breast cancer.
Simon Harris says he’s “a bit sickened” at what has been uncovered.


An undercover investigation by the Ireland edition of ‘the Times’ uncovered the information being given to women seeking counselling and information.
Doctors say the information is not accurate, and the Health Minister says he’s very “extraordinarily concerned” and “a bit sickened” by what he’s read.
Simon Harris says women are entitled to factual and accurate information, and he’s now looking at what policy options are available.
Minister Harris has also asked officials to prepare a report for him on this service and others.
