Two Kerry TDs are among a group of deputies who are supporting a private members' bill on the relief of foetal pain.

Deputies Danny and Michael Healy-Rae are members of the Rural Independent Group, who, with a number of other TDs, will vote for the bill this evening.

Laois-Offaly TD Carol Nolan, who's also a Rural Independent, says it seeks to ensure that unborn babies are given pain relief prior to late-term abortions.
